I just realized that I’m wasting a whole bunch flight privileges because I don’t have one of those Star Alliance membership cards. I do have an HSBC Mabuhay Miles card which I regularly convert to free miles but that’s only applicable if I fly Philippine Airlines or Air Philippines.
So, while spending some quite time at my hotel room, I did a search on which ones I can apply online and in a jiffy.
Singapore Airlines has their own Krisflyer membership program which is also a part of the Star Alliance. From my past travels abroad, I’ve been taking Singapore Air so it was the most logical one to sign up for. Now, if I can only retroactively add those earlier flight miles I incurred.
Anyway, I might still be able to log in the miles when I get back home and a couple more trips to Lahore & Karachi the week after so it’s not really all for naught.
Note: You can apply for Krisflyer online too. You automatically get your member ID and they’ll mail you your card once you reach a certain amount of points.
