So, according to the recent news, the booking ID's have been changed for employees.

I have been in touch with an employee who did not get a new one. Does this mean that the old/original ID is still valid?

Doubtful. I've been denied miles on Fairmont Savers rates.

I would think you could earn stay credit at the least.

Some of the hotels are still working (I just booked the Raffles Beijing and The Plaza) but it seems that both Singapore hotels don't work anymore with this rate (I tried countless dates)

I'm surprised people are still risking it and booking with the ID posted on this thread. Since it has apparently been discontinued/suspended, I'd be afraid Fairmont doesn't honor that rate when you show up because it's an invalid booking ID number.

If I booked yesterday, before 9 am using the NFAF promo code, but without adding any other employee ID to the res., will I have an issue?

As stated many times, you MUST use a booker ID.

So it looks as though their concern is with advertising specific rates at specific hotels, not with the F&F program in general.

Yes, but the employee T+C's of this promotion also mention that they can not post the deal online. I will keep you all updated with what I can, when I get more info.

This is in the process of being clarified. Updates coming soon hopefully. I believe that was intended to mean *private* social media sites (such as YOUR facebook page). Don't read too much into it until more details come in.
