Not really for me, though I take Y only on the SIN-KUL-SIN sector. So far have no issues getting the front row (bassinet) aisle seat when flying either SQ or MI on that sector.

I usually just let the system pick a random seat during booking, but I call up the hotline to request for the change. Been doing this for years, before the implementation of the paid set selection. So it may not be a fair comparison.

Double dipping allows you to qualify for PPS and SEN in parallel - no special effort needed.

Anyone else experiencing this
I had a recent booking to MNL,row 31 on the B777-300 (chargeable extra legroom seat) and as I complete the reservation,I wasn’t charged for it.

Unless this is a recent change,my reservation was done on 21/3/18

To clarify, I'm not saying the first few rows are unavailable to PPS members but just that it's occupied much earlier these days by paying Economy passengers with no status because the new pricing policy allows all passengers to select any seat so long as you are willing to pay.

Well, yes know that.....and half way to achieve SEN is done.

On a positive note: Cabin crew seem to have beefed up their efforts significantly during the past 6 month. Quite consistent as well.

Since the emergency rows are complimentary for PPS, I have a quite good success rate to fetch row 48 on the A330.

Moderator, why does my photo keep getting edited out?

Any idea how to attach photos from Google Photos? I used Picasa previously and had no issues ...

When you right click the photo, if you are using chrome, there is this "copy image address".

If some other browser, look for something similar.

That's exactly what I did on Chrome but the image disappears after a while even though it shows initially

That's the only URL given with the copy image address option from Google Photos. And it seems I can only view this SQTalk image on Chrome and not on other browsers.

Trying again here using Flickr ...

Even its clear that this is an A380 seatmap, I tried to figure out which configuration that is, as it seems not somehow tallying with the seatmaps on SQs website.

Anyway, there are some Emergency row seats available which you should be able to pick as PPS.
