Singapore Airlines Online Check In... What A Joke!

Wed Jul 12, 2006 7:42 pm

So it appears I am attempting to check-in online for a SQ flight departing on the 14/07 at 12h25.

As the OLCI is supposed to open 48 hours before, I tried to check-in a few minutes ago.

Result : The PNR XXXXXX is not eligible for check-in.

So I foam up SQ. Their answer : "Oh but 48 hours isn't a rule, sometimes it's 47, or 46 or whatever the system wants it to be. It's never the same so just keep on trying.

Now I know why AF/KL gets most of my business.

Edit : That's after waiting 30 mn with hold music btw.

Well it does say on their website when you go to OLCI that it opens between 2 and 48 hours before the flight.

and OLCI aside, you cannot compare KL/AF with SQ inflight service. Mind you I have used SQ-OLCI for years with no problems.

SQ's online checkin is absolutely rubbish. It won't be open at all - I guarantee it.

We had 4 flights with SQ two weeks apart and not one of them we could check in online - we had exactly the same error message for the entire 48 hours before each flight.

I was told that the OLCI system is often down. Don't worry, nobody else will be able to checkin online either so you'll be fine just turning up to the airport early!

Maybe they're deliberately blocking you because they don't want Rhiff Rhaaaf in Raffles class.
