Singapore Airlines Launches Internet Check-In

Thu Mar 14, 2002 6:42 pm

(Not a press release)

I think this is good for SIA customers because now you only have to arrive an hour earlier than departure for flights to and from the US, and only 45 minutes before departure for flights to and from elsewhere.

Anyway, passengers can now pick their seats up to 48 hours before departure using a sort of real-time seat-allocation system.

SIA has followed in the footsteps of other airlines with this intuitive feature.

All KrisFlyer, PPS Club, and people who book through the SIA website are eligible for this system, except for some destinations in Europe and Asia for some reason.

For more information, go to Singaporeair.com, go to News Releases and click the 14 March 2002 news release.

Amazing most airlines have it already for years.

e.g. Lufthansa :

Well I was thinking of Cathay Pacific when I said "SIA has followed in the footsteps of other airlines with this intuitive feature. " hehe  Big grin

Anyway, it sounds great and it looks like I will be using it though I have no idea how to and I hope they have a good help section for me!

It sucks really. If you didnt buy a ticket from SQ (or dont have a KrisFlyer number) it doesnt work.

When I bought my SIN-PER ticket from PER, it wont accept my details into the system. Sucky isnt it?

Yes CX has done it way before SQ.

Jessecy: There is nothing new in that. If you do a search you will also see that I have praised Cathay Pacific's award winning website. Therefore, I am disappointed at my stereotype.

Well, it's just because of your negative posts about CX. But you're getting OK now, heehee...... Just a curious question..... Have you ever said anything bad about SQ?

Yes he has. He did admit that Singapore Airlines made huge investment mistakes the size of a Boeing 747-400 Megatop!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

(Well ok, i paraphrased it, but the idea is there....)
