Default Solitaire PPS

Just managed to qualify for S PPS under the old scheme. Any ideas how long it will take them to process the conversion. I called SQ and the rep couldn't tell me. He said they need to confirm if i indeed qualify (even thou my online profile already show the 250k being met) and may take some time to do that. it sounds like a text book answer thou.

It shouldn't take long. If you have a flight coming up and you want to access the F lounge, just let them know.

Congrats! Very close to the 1 June deadline... Falling under the old regime is really great: 6 years of Reserve Value and only 25,000 SGD to maintain Solitaire every year!

I managed to qualify for TPPS very recently as well. Processing to the new status is very quick, though it took a while longer to get the new cards.

What has your experience been so far? Any noticeable service changes/ improvements?

Experience has been very good so far. I managed to use the F check-in out of Changi, which is a breeze. Having access to F part of SKL is also nice in that it is a lot less crowded. Onboard flights, crew also seems to be a little more attentive.

The date has come and as of today, 1 June 2018, you will need to earn S$50,000 in PPS Value within your PPS Club membership year to qualify for Solitaire PPS.

Anybody else managed to qualify under the old scheme before today’s cut off date?

I am one of the "unfortunate" ones to qualify for TPPS under the new scheme (having spent more than 50k in the preceding year before 1 Jun).

Interestingly, I wasn't given a choice if I want to requalify as QPPS and keep the other 25K in reserve for another year of QPPS. Or is it because there is a soft-landing policy for TPPS to QPPS such that I will get 2 years anyway. Any thoughts?

The Krisflyer Terms and Conditions are silent on soft-landing. I would expect SQ to continue the former approach whereby Solitaire will receive PPS regardless of PPS value collected.
