Lastly my bookings are through an agent (amex) and not direct with SQ, this may make a difference?
|Quoting Leskova (Reply 2):|
and that's not specific to Germany, those differing rules exist in practically all other countries as well.
|Quoting Kdm (Reply 3):|
However as my trips are all paid for by the Company I am never after the cheap fares, any fare will do provided I can get to my meetings etc.
|Quoting Kdm (Reply 3):|
So another question is do the airlines keep a note of those people that book and cancel a large number of flights?
|Quoting Flying-B773 (Reply 6):|
I think with this advance payment 7 days or 3 days before really helps pax who really needs to travel
|Quoting Kdm (Reply 7):|
Still can't understand why SQ may hold back on a guaranteed booking at full fare unless they have some sort of agreement with large corporates to keep bookings until the last minute.
|Quoting Lufthansa747 (Reply 8):|
For the reason that the plane may be full or overbooked 8 days before departure, and non-ticketed bookings auto-cancel at 7 days or whatever deadline the airline has set.
|Quoting Kdm (Reply 9):|
That said it is a great problem for an airline to have, to many passengers 90 percent of the time, most airlines would dream of this sort of yeald.
|Quoting Nimish (Reply 10):|
As an aside, there's this mysterious "Confirmed from Waitlist" status that shows up on your itinerary for a little while, before moving to "confirmed". I've never understood what "confirmed from waitlist" indicates!
|Quoting Leskova (Reply 12):|
as soon as it's confirmed by the airline, the status changes to "KK" ("Kan Konfirm" - or something like that, which is probably what you see as "Confirmed from Waitlist") which then has to be changed to "HK" ("Holding Konfirmed" - which then shows up as "Confirmed" on your itinerary).
If the "KK" status is not confirmed/changed to HK within 72 hours, the airline - in principle - has the right to withdraw the confirmation and put you back on the waitlist...
