I know SIA used to do it, but they might well have stopped. It used to cause un-ending chaos; imagine all the Pinays being flown home on tickets bought on 'Sirs' credit card. Now is he going to go and check her in (show his CC) at the airport... I don't think so!
Beginning to get concerned about the ticket I bought for my daughter to come over next January. Mixture of air miles and cash paid on the credit card.
She is one of my redemption nominees on the Krisflyer account would that make a positive difference?
Think I had better contact SIA.
Just scroll up and read the previous page where we covered exactly this
Singapore Air (SQ, SIA, whatever) and Silk Air require you to validate the credit card. If you purchased online and went through the "Verified by Visa / MasterCard Secure Code" where your bank SMS'd you a code to enter, you're all set. If not, you have to go to their booking office on the 4th floor of Orchard iON so they can scan the card.
And Redemption nominee won't matter. My wife and daughter both are, and I purchased them one-way tickets after one trip from HAN to SIN. Due to their crappy website, I was able to purchase my wife's and validate it on the website, but had to call in and give the credit card number for my daughter. Since I called, I had to go in with the credit card to the office for the daughter. Even though I bought a reward ticket on the same flight with the same card for the wife and it was validated.
