Some generosity here:smile:

Was booking my flights to Tokyo in Y and it seems like SQ is offering 10% milleage for Super Deals fares and 50% for Super Deals. Previously both fare classes were strictly non milleage accruable.

Maybe the penny has finally dropped, they need to start enticing people more. This announcement combined with many cheaper fares out of Australia for most of this year if booked soon has to be good for business in my opinion.

I think this is a nice move for those of us who fly Y.

Super Deals fares are normally dirt cheap. I just paid S$646 for my flight to Tokyo. Delta, United, JAL, ANA who all fly SIN-TYO were more expensive than that, even their promotional fares. May not mean much but its nice to get 10% of the miles rather than nothing.

The Sweet Deals fares are also reasonable at S$1,050 and you now get 50% rather than 0 previously. I think this fare bracket would be a lot more attractive now to many leisure consumers.. A little more expensive than their competitiors but you now get 50% of the miles.

Appears to be KF-only. Other FFPs don't seem to be allowing accrual on these fare buckets.

Actually I think what SQ (and other airlines) should do is count that super dirt fare toward tier qualificationand not rewards miles.

The program is FREQUENT flyer. If someone always fly on the cheapest airfare he is still the frequent flyer but now he will not be recongnized as one

It was ultimately a good news for passenger travelling on economy class, finally able to accrual mileage for their flight, but after reading thru the fine print, it indicate that "G" booking class are not eligible for mileage accrual, which I find it totally unacceptable, here are my points.

1. We booked a group tour to Europe for a family of 4, ticket issued under "G" booking class, fare reflected at $1150 plus $717.30 taxes/fuel surcharges amount to $1867.30 per person, after my investigation, fare is the same as "N" booking class.

Now, with the introduction of the new accruability policy, "N" booking class able to accrual 50% of the mileage, while "G" booking class is non, and to make thing worst "V" class can even get 10% mileage, while "G" booking is zero!

My question is, most Singaporean love to join package tours for travel, and bulk of the ticket thru travel agency is booked under "G" class, so why should group passenger not able to enjoy the perk of FFP if they are not really paying "Rock Bottom" fare?

If fare $1288* for Milan able to accrual mileage, I don't see why we paying $1867.30* not able to get even a single mile in our FFP?

If "N" & "G" booking class is common rated fare, then why SQ is instructing the travel agency to book under "G" class and not "N" class?

*Inclusive of taxes/surcharges.

Thank you!

Not sure if it is the same if we choose to clock the miles for SQ flights on Star Alliance partner airlines' frequent flyer programs like United Mileage Plus, ANA Mileage Club etc...

Maybe cause the travel agency takes a cut of the fare whereas SQ gets the whole fee?

Thank you Kris,

The fare that disseminate to travel agency by SQ, Agency are required to add on a service/documentation fees amount to the ticket and sell it to their customer, so that amount of $1867.30 is the net amount payable to SIA, which is the same as the internet fare.

I am still wondering, does any of the SQ management staff read these thread, if they do, are they doing something to it?

Thank you!

Typically The net fare the agent pays is 5% less than the internet fare (excluding taxes) .

They certainly pay commission in the Australian market. If they didn't they would lose a huge amount of business. Thai remains one of the most generous here.
