I like number 10
+1

thanx SPLP for that info, but it sounds to me that it has just about the same effect has a regular voucher. - the only thing is that they want my contact address in bangkok, and by the time they send me the MPD itll prob be useless as i will be leaving soon. - do you know if they would give me a voucher number over the phone?

Yup, I got a $25 Visa Gift Card when my kosher meal didn't show up!

well, got an email after a week or so good for a $50 Amex card (for two meals)! Thx!

i was on a Lufthansa flight to tlv. it was award ticket. the entertainment system in first class broke on 1 of the segments. (either boston to germany or germany to tlv) they sent me 4 voucher type things to be used  for the inflight shopping thing on future flights. (100 or 200 euro total. dont remember)
1) it has my name on it. can other people use them?
2)does it expire? (no date on the voucher but each voucher has its own number)

It can't hurt to try. Write a letter on their behalf.

Try writing a letter from yourself now. Sometimes that helps.  Especially when writing for elderly people.

Airline: Singapore Airlines
Flight: PVG-SIN
Class: Economy
Incident: No Kosher Food (after confirming it on the booking)
Compensation: S$75 (=$61 USD) inflight Coupon

the FA felt really bad for me and gave me lots of fruits, and the plan was overbooked so i couldnt ask for an upgrade, and he then gave me a coupon on board.

question is can i still put in a complain and get something out of it?
you can definitelty complain for both things, i donk think they will know that the fa gave you the voucher
UPDATE: I just got a reply from them, and they apologized that it took so long and it was because they were investigating the case - and they really did!
they told me sorry for no kosher meal and mentioned how i got a coupon on board for S$75 !
and they obviously didnt offer anything else

The upgrade to EC cost more than that, I'd insist on a refund.
