hey guys,


booked a flight from HKG to MEL next year

HKG to SIN SQ 863 (arrive sin at 6pm) 
and then connecting SQ 237 (depart sin at 11:45pm). There is another flight SQ 227 departing around 9pm.

Has anyone had experiences where SQ put them on an earlier flight upon request at check in if there is availability?

Generally no given SQ is not known for flexibility (in my opinion). But at least Changi is one of the best options to have a longer layover if one has to pick one.

The issue will be mainly with bags.  Once your bags are logged into a particular flight there is almost no chance of a change.  >>>>>>>>> Try for carry-on only perhaps.

I echo other members' comment which is likely no. I flew 2 days ago from TPE to SIN in discounted Flexi economy & was denied an earlier flight. After a 15 min wait, they said they could do so if I am willing to pay for fare difference ...

I've found if your going to stay longer in Singapore they waive the fees, if your staying for a shorter period they hit you with charges.
