Singapore Airlines Redemption
Hi, Thanks to the great advice on OMAAT, I earned enough points on various credit cards to ultimately transfer to Singapore and redeem a trip from SFO to SIN in F and SIN to SFO in J (waitlisted for F). 2 pax. (For reasons that I can no longer remember, I booked each leg as a OW award ticket.) So that’s all great, and my wife and I are super excited. Here is the slight hitch. The trip is in October/November, and we recently decided to move from California to Connecticut. I’m wondering if there is anything we can do to change the current award tickets to add NYC to SFO onto the outbound reservation and then add SFO to NYC on the return, on the theory that if we could, doing it this way would require fewer additional KF miles than if we were to book a separate RT NYC to SFO. Of course, if we need to just book a separate ticket, award or revenue, to get from NYC to SFO and back we won’t be complaining, but I figured I’d ask to see if there is anything we could do with the current one first. Thanks!
Hi there. It would defnitely be better to tag on that award ticket. United is pretty stingy when it comes to space however on those trans-con routes so you may have to build in another stop. Also, you do have to call when booking SQ partner awards. Keep in mind hat you would lose the 15% online booking discount (if you recieved this). They are however doing away with that system. Even though you would lose that 15%, if you got it in the first place, it is still cheaper than doing two separate tickets.
