    Didn't they already announce they'll honour the fares?

    Creating hoo haa is part of our corporate culture. We have the best talents for it.

    These people wants $65 admin fee if you buy tickets over the counters. What's there to learn? This company takes Greed to new heights, no pun intended.

    They just want to push people to buy ticket online so that they can save on the infrastructure and man power manning the counter. From what I see, the $65 is to cover the cost of providing the counter service. Many company is doing that too, they offer a cheaper price if you transact online.

    The price could be serving as a deterrent to using the counter service, and push people to go for online booking instead as a shift towards online services to save on manpower cost.

    It's called strategy, using price as a deterrent. And yes, next you're going to grouse about how cheapskate they are by cutting staff. Welcome to the real world buddy. It's called trying to maximize profitability in business

    Welcome to the future of no human person on air.

    You really should get out more often. Get yourself stranded in a foreign airport. Miss that connecting flight. Only to have the greater misfortune to find out that the next available flight out is an overpriced SQ plane. Limited command of English. Finding an internet connection when you are hungry, tired, demoralised and looking at the prospect of spending the night in the gallery.

    Then say what you just said to yourself. I'm sure it would be quite an experience in that real world of yours. Until then, your drivel is again.... worthless.

    Yes yes. Once again refuting another view by calling it drivel. I'm sure that somewhere out there, there would be someone who decides that "heck, I'll take that overpriced plane since it's the next viable option, and be done with it". But you made your choice not to. Does it make your choice wrong? No it does not

    You made your choice because it's expensive and you wouldn't pay the price for it. But to say overpriced and to start the name-calling on another's and complaints in my opinion is quite whiny.

    You're a well-respected presence here no doubt, but your attitude towards others who present an alternative view is not becoming of someone of your status

    If you dug out the almost 15 year history, you'd find that status is the least of my concerns around here. I call what I see. The folks whom had that kind of misfortune is not me, it was a Taiwanese couple we flew back with from Taipei. They make about SGD$2000 a month combined. Try your drivel on them. Fortunately and unfortunately, the world is not filled with only yes and no decisions. There are the in-betweens which fall through the gaps. Whiny? So who's that whiner whining about another whiner?

    Get out more. Its good for you.

    Probably because it happened in Australia... if in Singapore, do you think they will? Think DBS-Lehman saga...

    Another bad publicity.

    Something has to be done if SIA wants to stay 1st class!

    Economy class passengers are allow 1piece of carry on bag as per the approve measurement into the aircraft. Special case such as the cello are allowed as long as a seat was purchased for it as it will be secured to the seat according to the approved method.

    Flying from HK to Sydney by Cathay Pacific I saw an economy class passenger obviously from PRC carrying one carry on bag each on left and right hand and another bag on his back to board the plane.

    Yeah, having multiple carry-on baggages is common.

    Well Qantas is now ranked higher than SQ for customer satisfaction. Qantas! That airline with that grumpy cabin attendant who looks like they hate their job! Yet they're higher than SQ! That says a lot!

    How do you like it when all the passengers carry as many bags as they like onboard and deprive you of a space to pull your bags? Actually it's a safety violation to allow too many bags as the overhead compartment can only take up to a certain weight.
