Just checked and promo is out. It's not for where I want to go (USA promo)

The 30% off for selected destinations don't include first class(for Beijing) and no promo for Kathmandu argh.

Anyone successfully claimed Krisflyer miles for Turkish Airline flights before? By right we should be able to claim miles for any star alliance partners?

Or am I getting it wrong?

Keep getting an "invalid destination code " message upon submitting the online form.

Quick question.

If you purchased 6 SIA tickets for the family, how come you get awarded krisflyer miles for only Yourself, but not the other 5 family members who are kids or elderly without krisflyer account?

Miles can only accrue for yourself. Ticket name and frequent flyer membership name must match.

Kids and elderly can also have their own frequent flyer membership.

There must be a hack for it... but i don't know it!

I mean the logic is weird..

If u book 1 flight for yourself, u need to book 6 times to get the points.
If i booked for family trip, it's 6 tickets per trip.

To SIA, they are penalising a person who purchased 6 tickets for one flight versus a person who purchased 1 ticket for 6 different flights. When the total value of the purchase are the same.



Is there other airlines that would allow points to be accrued to the same person for the same flight? If got, i intend to book flights on that for family holidays. More worth it to get points.

Your logic is weird. How about I get the miles for the flights you've flown?

That's because you think of Miles as PER PERSON when in fact it should be viewed of as Points like Credit card.

When you spend $$ on a credit card, the item bought can be for anyone, but the points all accrued to you because you are using your credit card.

likewise, when you spend $$$ to buy airtickets for anyone, the miles should be accrued to you as long as you provide the Krisflyer account number to deposit into.

I mean that's how i expect Krisflyer account to oeprate .. like a credit card model.

Anyway, does no matter, this is the first time I am trying to play with miles.
All along, i've been booking SIA tickets for the family without a krisflyer account. Got interested in this using miles to upgrade to business class ..that's why i am exploring and found it strange why it must be tied to per person and not treated like a credit card way of points accumulation.

Nevermind, no need to reply. you all think it's normal and nobody here can change a thing about the current system. So I think i give up on this miles accumulation thingy.

easier way to earn miles will be via miles credit card where you can accumulate spending of main and sub card.

Let say Iím flying from

Singapore - Frankfurt - New York.

And back

SFO - Tokyo - singapore

Realize the cost of return fight is cheaper. So I would say itís more worth it to pay for the return flight?

And Iím considering if itís worth redeeming business class to or back? Any thoughts?

The miles given by airlines is reward for flying. If u book ticket n never fly, you wonít get the miles also. That why it is call frequent flyer mile.
