SINGAPORE: A TikToker shared with his followers how he surprised his mother with a Singapore Airlines seat upgrade from Business Class to Suites on her flight from London to Singapore.
“When you surprised your mom with an upgrade to Suite Class for a 12.5 hour flight on SIA’s amazing A380,” TikTok user @adrieltjokro, or Adriel, wrote on Jan. 5.
Adriel captured the moment when he told his mother about the seat upgrade as she was escorted up a flight of stairs to the Suite Class.
He explained that he used his KrisFlyer miles, a rewards program from the SIA Group, to upgrade his seat.
“While she wasn’t looking, I swapped her seat with mine so she could enjoy Suite Class before her return flight,” Adriel wrote.
He also praised SIA for their “legendary” service after cabin crew allowed him to sit in one of the suites before landing so he could disembark with his mother.
The video provoked mixed reactions among netizens who called the mothers “oh, a suite again?” remark.
Loses effect, I’m afraid. The fact that she used the word “again” herself is like “aww, that’s nice,” one TikTok user said.
Adriel then explained in a comment that he had redeemed 250,000 KrisFlyer miles for himself and his mother in the past. “Yes, we flew with Suites and we only paid SGD 100 in taxes and fees.”
“Okay okay, can we please calm down? No, we don’t go on Suites very often, but we only went on Suites together once prior to this flight,” he added.
Others worried about how their parents would react when they found out the price of such pleasures.
“I could never buy expensive things for my parents without them saying ‘how much did this cost?'” commented TikTok user @reign.
Still, many thought the gesture was sweet and something they hoped to do for their parents./TISG
