In case anyone else missed this too, SQ changing their IAH-DME to IAH-MAN end of October.

OMAAT has more details.

Thanks benjie1305 for bringing it to my attention.
Does this mean more tax?

Not for arrivals or transiting, only for departure out of UK.

Its actually a few dollars cheaper then routing through Moscow for random dates I just checked.

What would JFK-FRA-TLV in J (with the first leg being SQ and second being LH) cost in miles and SQ? Is there a better use of SQ for JFK-TLV

The account is frozen, the Amex MR AH name didnt match the SQ acct name even if an AU was made.
Bookings seem fine & not affected (they better lol).

I transfered enough citi TYP to krisflyer to be able to wailist the suite class flight we need from Tokyo to Singapore (IIRC its 52k for OW).

Really want to get on the flight (sometime end of October). Any tips from seasoned DDFs on how to get them to push it thru? About chances, etc? I understand this is not such a popular route (unlike NYC/FRA). Also, we have no status with krisflyer...

TIA!!!

Anyone?

Update: called yesterday, first rep unhelpful, second rep (named zada) told me there was availability and I should be able to get on flight and he sent request over to services to release the ticket for me. But he said he couldn't guarantee anything, and that the ticket could be released tomorrow or 1 day before flight (which actually isn't so helpful). Planning on just HUCA'ing a lot... anyone have any experiences with this??

Don't know if Twitter would help, but guess it doesn't hurt to give it a shot... :)
