Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer program has been busy this updating its earning charts. Just two days ago, KrisFlyer changed the chart to include the latest partner Alaska Airlines (read more here).
Today, the airline updated the earning information for United Airlines economy fare classes that will take effect on October 1, 2017. The number of miles earned for economy class fares is cut by up to 75%.

It is really unfortunate that Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer don’t give better advance notice about these changes for its frequent flier program members.
The partnership between these two airlines (Singapore Airlines and United Airlines) cannot be described good. You cannot even book Singapore Airlines awards on United’s website. You have to call them in.
I guess that Singapore Airlines tries to get more KrisFlyer members to use Alaska Airlines in the future instead of United. The problems is that Star Alliance wide Gold elite benefits such as lounge access and priority check in, luggage delivery and boarding won’t apply for Alaska Airlines operated flights while they do when flying on United.
