SQ978 SIN-BKK earlier this month.

Was flying on PE fare on EWR-SIN-BKK, but with the short-haul sector booked in Y class. Bid the minimum US$140 for Y to J class upgrade for SIN-BKK sector, which was accepted. No empty seats in J class on my flight.

Can anyone confirm if Premium Economy Lite (R fare) is eligible to partake in the mySQupgrade experience? I saw at the time of booking it's not eligible for upgrading via miles. My return fare is Premium Economy Standard (P fare).

First time flying SQ, going LAX-SIN this summer on what looks to be an A350-900 ULR (no standard economy) - so I'm hopeful that I'm eligible because I'd love to experience the product if the range is reasonable (and if EF show high availability in J)

I don't think I can bid to upgrade from business to first/suites. Am I right?

Can I pay at airport to upgrade.

Yes you can - you pay the fare difference. Done it multiple times from PEK - SIN

Can you credit to Alaska Mileage Plan an SQ standard premium economy flight that was upgraded to business using KrisFlyer miles?

Newbie here.

WHat is the process to use miles to upgrade from PE to Business?

WHat about the bid up process? I am traveling with a minor, so I am doubtful they will do one but not the other. Price range for SFO to HKG? I am guessing lots since that is a premium heavy route

Also I have a HKG>SIN>LHR. Do they bid individually or as a group for both flights?

*** UPDATED 15APR ***
So today I got my confirmation that no J upgrade on my flight even tho they are still showing 3 seats for sale.

On a side note let me give you some other advice as well to help you choose another airline.

Toilets (2nd time in PE) were a disaster. The bins donít get cleaned intil itís overflowing. 777-300 seats (and probably A350 too) narrower compared to A380 and you feel it.

All in all I will very likely go another airline or just go in economy and pay for exit row seats instead. I didnít find the value in PE at all - even with a paid upgrade.

It now also makes sense why itís doing so poorly on the US route.

Trying to make a bid however when I enter my Booking Ref the flight details are incorrect. I changed the date of travel and MySQupgrade is still showing the original date. Am I safe to bid despite it showing the wrong date?

MySQupgrade allows bidding until 50 hours before departure and tells you if you were successful or not almost immediately at T-50. So you should be able to take advantage of that to work out whether it is applying to your revised booking or not. If you're flying on a later date than originally planned then don't submit an offer till 48 hours before the original flight was due to take off. If you're flying on an earlier date then place an offer and if you haven't had a response by T-48 then you should cancel your bid straight away.

btw you dont need to wait for an email invitation to bid. Once you book your flight go to https://www.singaporeair.com/en_UK/u...g/mysqupgrade/ and scroll down to
"Is your flight eligible for an upgrade?" and enter your booking details and it will let you bid if your booking is eligible
