Copyright Amendment Delayed – And a Treatise On Singapore Airlines
So back online afterthe Blackout.. and whaddayaknow… they delayed it
Internet copyright law delayed
So I’m finally on the homeward stretch of a tour around Asia presenting on Microsoft CRM technology- currently sitting at the airport at Singapore waiting to get on my flight to Sydney. Will be my first flight on an A380 so I pretty buzzed!
I just posted a comment over on Cactus’ site where she’s having a whinge about Air New Zealand.
I’m sorry but I’ve tried a bunch of the *A carriers and while NZ is not perfect it’s the best of the bunch I think. As for calling out Singapore Airlines as a shining light- I’m sorry but until they fix the following that aren’t playing the game in my book
- Checking in *A Gold card holders at their business counters @ Changi T2 and T3- instead of having a special area to hide them away in.
In your place from the moment you step through those big glass doors.
The ‘Special’ Gold Card Holder check in area.
Note the tape fences to keep the Economy Class flying ‘swine’ in check!
Reserved for Proper Premium Service passengers only. No cattle here.
- Allowing *A gold card holders to use their business class lounge at Changi T2 and T3 the same way that every other bloody Star Alliance airline does for their frequent flyers. Instead *A Gold members get a ‘special’ lounge without showers and the other niceties one might expect. Back in the days before T3 they used to claim it was due to ‘space requirements’ but with the move to T3 this ‘excuse’ is categorically a complete load of bollocks- It’s peak time in the lounge right now with all the long haul flights leaving over the next couple of hours and the place is empty.
- Updating their priority boarding policy and priority boarding signs to make it clear that they actually give a shit about being part of a global alliance rather than just paying it lip service.
Star Alliance?!? What’s that?
For my next post, you’ll get my feelings on the behaviour of another behemoth of the Alliance, the perpetually bankrupt, United Airlines.
Deep down I really just want to fly on Spice Jet!
I hope the inflight service is as Spicy as it sounds! Though without the naked Cacti as I’m sure they’re sans a J cabin that would be up to standard.
