Smile Changes coming to TPP, and...?

...is it 50K PPSV to qualify, or is that just renewal ?. Or, could it be something different ?. What about this new tier above TPP ?. What will that get you, is it the same thing, or something different ?. Or will they abandon the idea(s) altogether ?. And what about the other bits ?.

So many rumours, and suggestions, does anyone really know ?

You are very late to the rumor mill, MAN Flyer...

SQ wanted to launch this last year already but took much much much longer to decide...

Point 1: They get that the current TPP qualification/requalification doesn't make much sense. They will make it easier to reach TPP.

Point 2: They want to incentivize passengers who keep flying. I would expect some 'milestone' rewards when crossing certain mileage/PPS value marks during the membership year.

Point 3: I understand that SQ does not want to add another tier. Let's see whether they changed their mind :-)

Perhaps a TPR card, similar to BA's Concorde room card?

I guess it might be rather difficult to offer additional benefits to another tier.. After all TPPS already get to use almost everything except TPR, hence my above point.

a bit off topic but there is a new programme for Small Business called the HighFlyer and its pretty good for small companies with limited travel budget as the current Corporate scheme is not appropriate / realistic for small firms with only a few flyers

Good tip, thanks......

Applied first and will see useful or not going forward. Certainly more helpful than this UOB thing they're trying. Anything, though, to help membership has to be applauded but our problem, from Singapore, is purely the cost of flights out on SQ itself, in comparison on those coming in or through.

Checked with SQ and they are not ready to release their new program yet. Will take some more time...

(And they are working on it for more than a year now).

Yes, and I posted the thread starter as soon as I put the phone down....

But at least it's clear what's important to you, which is pretty impressive for just a QPP.
