– you will enjoy it!
Join the SQ
Krisflyer (the frequent flyer programme) first.
Then make the booking and request seat of your choice. This is usually honoured. You will also gets loads of Krisflyer miles on a round trip to Ozzie and great flexibility if you wish to change any part of your journey after the first sector has commenced - at no charge!
Tip – if you book direct on the SQ
website go for the Multi city option and break the journey. You will invariably find the ticket is valid for one year. You can then make changes to the return journey as often as you like with no charge – makes it easy if you want to extend your stay.
You can study the SQ
seats plans here:
Break the journey at Changi Airport and just enjoy and explore, for it is one of the truly great airports and it will amaze you.
You can even stay in excellent accommodation airside if in transit – I always do and have spent many a splendid 24 hours “in transit” – SQ
keep the heavy bags during all this too! The budget rooms in both hotels in Terminal One and Two are fine and have showers just round the corner.
As long as you have a valid ticket and onward boarding card you can leave the transit area, take the bus or train and go into Singapore for a look, then return airside to explore more. It is so easy to do – I do it every trip to/from Ozzie.
Changi Airport has a great web site too:
Feel free to email me if you’d like any further practical advice.
Forgot to add this:
You can watch the entire SQ safety video to get you in the mood!
