Lack of seating benefits for Gold Elite

So I booked a cheap getaway for my wife and I from NZ to Bali. It was cheap so no complaints about the fare.

this is the first ticket I've brought in the cheaper buckets since the changes earlier this year.

after booking I went to select a seat however as my wife has no status with SQ she doesn't qualify for free seat select, even though she is travelling with me, on the same ticket. How ridiculous is that? This in effect removes MY ability to select seats as I'm not going to select mine and leave her to fend for herself..! I called SQ and they really didn't care less. For me, it's not about the money, it's more the principal and continued penny pinching... I will end up paying the SG$80 but it's really annoying.

As a comparison AirNz treat their and other *G to seat select, in the premium zones, no matter how many people are in the booking...

not good..! Your thoughts?
