One Mile at a Time reports that due to Singapore Airline’s computer system switchover, SQ award availability has suddenly opened up dramatically.
I’ve tried ticketing three itineraries and obtained three different outcomes.
- A simple JFK-FRA-WAW-FRA-JFK trip in business class for August (with both TATL segments operated by SQ) led to a “one or more flights may not be available” message after the payment screen.
- My JFK-GVA-ZRH (LX C)-FRA (LH C)-JFK (SQ C) is currently “Pending confirmation from Singapore Airlines.”
- My ICN-SFO (SQ F)-EWR (UA F) one-way for August is ticketed and confirmed.
Per the Singapore Airlines announcement about this switchover, their operations will “resume progressively from 2200 hours on July 8th Singapore Local Time.” That leaves about 11 hours for me to deploy the rest of my United miles towards further awards…
