I’m ticketed on a SQ flight to Europe in the next few weeks. I know they are a partner airline for airNz but this was a Sq ticketed flight (and it does not show up in my airNz app). Will I still get status points for this flight under airNz, or should I join the Sq Kris scheme ?

@sbiddle can confirm for sure but I am guessing no as you paid Singapore airlines and not airnz

You can earn SP and APD on any Star Alliance flight. Assuming you're on a qualifying booking class you will earn SP and APD and earn is on the airnzpoints.co.nz website.

just link the airpoints number to the ticket. but iirc the earning rate used to be so bad it wasn't worth the paper it's printed on. might be different now.

Thanks for the reply. I’m assuming it’s either airNz points or sq - not both, so I need to choose which ff number to associate with the trip?

As an aside, Sq were about half the price for a brussels return trip business class. I like to fly airNz but can’t justify that kind of difference. AirNz are pricing themselves out

Air NZ are pricing themselves where they believe they can sustain pricing. As their premium cabins to the US and from the US to UK fly 100% full on a large % of flights many would say that's what you call being successful . Flying via Asia will always be cheaper due to the competition.

 

You can only earn to a single program which is the FQTV field in the booking.

yes you need to not link your booking to krisflyer, and you need to link your booking to airpoints. you can also do the points transfer after the fact if you linked it wrong or didn't link etc, but easiest if you did it the way i suggested.

If you are going to be flying Singapore Airlines in business class more then you should sign up for SQ PPS so you can earn status in both the Air NZ (or other SQ partner airline) and SQ programmes for the one flight. It's a quirk of the programme and doesn't cost you anything. If not then just accrue to NZ.
