Singapore Airlines Question

Mon Apr 02, 2007 10:12 am

What is the Kris in KrisFlyer, KrisShop, KrisWorld, ect. I was just on the website, and I was confused. I am sure someone here knows.

Here are links to some of the pages

As long as the number of take-offs equals the number of landings...you're doing fine.

That is interesting. I would think that they would have a link that tells you about it. The first thing that came to my mind was whos Kris... I was way off the mark. Thanks Viscount724

I also thought they might mention it in the history page in their website but they don't seem to.
