You Can Now Redeem KrisFlyer Miles Online on Star Alliance Airlines and Other Partners

Following the devaluation of KrisFlyer Miles on Star Alliance Redemption Tickets today, KrisFlyer members are now able to redeem their KrisFlyer miles for award tickets on Star Alliance and other partners on singaporeair.com or via their mobile applicable from 07 December 2017 (which is today!). If you login to your KrisFlyer account and try to make a redemption booking, you will notice that there are three buttons located on the search results page and you will be able to sort through flights that are operated by Singapore Airlines/SilkAir, Star Alliance Airlines and Other Partner Airlines respectively.

While I am personally quite excited to be given this option, keep in mind that award tickets redeemed on other airlines apart from Singapore Airlines and SilkAir will probably attract a much higher fuel cost now that the Fuel and Insurance (YQ) Surcharges on SQ/MI Operated Flights have been removed

I have not had any luck with getting any availability to show up on the site and will continue to try but I am interested to hear if anyone out there has a different experience with the site.
