The last thing most passengers want to do after a flight is make a complaint, but sometimes it has to be done. Whether it’s to express disappointment with the service you’ve received or for inconvenient Singapore Airlines flight disruptions, a complaint can be worthwhile.

Here, we’ll discuss everything every passenger should know regarding Singapore Airlines complaints, complete with a summary of your rights, how to contact the company, common complaints, and how best to go about it.

What Types of Singapore Airlines Complaints Are Worth It?

When you need to get something off your chest, any Singapore Airlines complaint is worth it. That said, some complaints are more likely to result in compensation for your troubles than others. Consider these:

  • Delays: Passengers may be entitled to a maximum of £520 (€600) in flight delay compensation as long as their journey departs from an airport in the UK or EU. 
  • Cancellations: Flights cancelled by Singapore Airlines without sufficient notice can also trigger compensation similar to that for delayed flights.
  • Mishandled luggage: If Singapore Airlines mishandles a passenger’s bags, they can claim up to £1,000 (€1,300), which, like delays and cancellations, is flight route dependent.
  • Denied boarding: Let’s say a Singapore Airlines flight is overbooked, causing them to bump a ticketed passenger. In these cases, passengers may be entitled to a maximum of £520 (€600) in compensation.
  • The passenger experience: Letting the airline know when an in-flight or booking experience has been less than satisfactory may also prompt the airline to issue vouchers or discounts.

Making Singapore Airlines complaints - your rights as a passenger

Passenger Rights - the EU and UK

In the European Union and the UK, two regulations exist that mandate the necessary compensation to be issued by the airline. These are Regulation EU 261 and Regulation UK 261

Even though Singapore Airlines isn’t based in either area, these regulations will still apply as long as a flight leaves from an EU or UK airport. So, if this is the case, passengers can make Singapore Airlines complaints related to delays of 3 hours or more and flights cancelled without a minimum of 14 days' notice.

Flight distance is also a factor. For Singapore Airlines flight delays that depart from these regions that are delayed by 3 hours at least, passengers can complain to get the following:

Singapore Airlines Complaints - Our Recommendations

Make sure that you have all your ducks in a row and know what you’ll need to have handy:

  • Be prompt. Singapore Airlines after travel complaints are best made as soon as you return home. The details won’t be fuzzy, and you’re more likely to have the documentation you need.
  • Keep all your documents and info. Have your reservation number, flight details, boarding passes, photos, correspondence, and anything else the airline may need to validate your complaint. 
  • Specify your preferred contact method. Your email will likely be required, but a direct phone number is also a good idea if you wish to speak with someone.
  • State the expected resolution. Whether it’s to resolve a Singapore Airlines service issue or a flight disruption, let them know what you expect. It may be useful to reference your passenger rights and EU/UK 261.
