Status Match

I was wondering if Krisflyer would do a status match of an AA Platinum (Emerald)? If so, what level would they comp me to?

Thanks,

Your best bet would be to get UA to comp you to Premier Executive. That is Star Alliance Gold to SQ. Then achieve KrisFlyer status by flying while enjoying your Star Alliance Gold status.

In any case, zvezda's suggestion would be the best course of action - after all, Krisflyer (pretty close to) never comps from what I know. Besides, Krisflyer Gold offers little extra compared to UA Premier Executive anyway - this includes the inability to access the Silver Kris lounge at SIN.

What *G lounges are there in SIN for SQ passengers in Y?

Zvezda's is spot on. I have also never heard of SQ doing a Comp Status match especially in Singapore. As for the lounge question, all *A Gold Members travelling on SQ "Y" will have access to SATS Premier Lounge
. The lounge is not too bad but I would not want to spend too much time in there as it can get quite crowded and the food maynot be all that great

Here is the link to the Lounge Information that SQ Operates. Hope it helps

Here is a link to the SATS Premier lounge if you are interested in the photos of the surroundings and food offerings. Look under Singapore --> Singapore Airlines)

Don't you mean PPS?

Which in any case, they don't comp!

Not that they comp Krisflyer levels, but I think that Krisflyer Gold will be the closest equivalent to AA EXP, as PPS requires exclusively F or J class travels. (vs. AA EXP where they only require 66,667 miles per year in Full Y or 100,000 miles per year in Discount Y, for example)

Has anyone been successfully comped from SQ PPS to *gold level on other star A airlines or OW Sapphire level if so how do you go about getting the comp?

If you are crediting miles to another FFP then would, on many (all?) FFPs be *G anyway.
