I was able to get a seat on the flight from SYD
on 26 October in Y class. Originally, we were told the auction would be over on the 10th, but the auction is still going. I would have paid $2,000.00 for a Business Seat, but now because I have a Y seat and the rules are very very very strict on making changes for the flight, I cannot change to Business and pay more. The reason is, when you qualify to bid, you must give them the passport number(s) and name(s) of the passengers traveling on the particular bid and CANNOT change them. I would still pay $2K for a Business Seat. After the 10th, more seats were put into the system for sale, include single Business and single Suite seats, that was a little confusing to me, but still so very happy to be a part of history.
However, if you want to go, please do so, the money is for some great charities and they can always use every bit. Until you have had a "special" child, like I have, it is impossible to really feel the love from a children's hospital. I am so very grateful that Singapore Airlines is doing this for charity and that Exxon Mobil is donating the fuel. This type of humanity displayed by Singapore Airlines and Exxon Mobil is worthy of a never ending thank you. The families and children that will benefit will be blessed by our offerings, so please do what you can to bid on the remaining seats.
Singapore Airlines - thank you. As a parent with a "special" child, I cannot begin to thank you enough for your generosity to do what is right. Thank you.
Hope to see you airlines.net-ers on board. If any of you want to get together for dinner in SYD
the night before the flight to SIN
let me know and we can all get together.
Again, a heart felt thank you from a dad with a "special" child to Singapore Airlines and all the suppliers donating their time, effort and product in supporting this once in a life time opportunity.
