In what appears to be an as yet unannounced policy, Singapore Airlines has started offering KrisFlyer members discounted seat selection fees, including Forward Zone and Extra Legroom options, whether they pay cash or redeem miles for their flight.


You have to cast your mind back to December 2017 to recall Singapore Airlines’ announcement of a range of new fare categories.

While Extra Legroom seats already attracted an additional charge, the airline introduced fees for Standard Seats and Forward Zone cabin sections on SIA and SilkAir flights, for those booking the cheapest ‘Economy Lite’ and ‘Economy Standard’ fares.

Our article here broke down the new paid seat selection at the time. In a nutshell you have to book a ‘Standard’ fare in Economy to get complimentary Standard Seat selection, or a Flexi Fare to also get complimentary Forward Zone seat selection.
