Award Redemption Last minute KrisFlyer Star Alliance partner award booking question.

    Hi Lucky (and forum readers),

    I'm looking to make a Lufthansa First class booking with Singapore KrisFlyer miles (FRA -> LAX). If the seats become available at the 2 week mark, I've got no problem. However, if the seats become available the night before the 10am flight, is that time period (essentially 12 hours until departure) too short for KrisFlyer to make a partner booking? What are people's experiences booking this way so last minute? I could also book through United, but I'd rather pay 80,000 miles with SQ instead of the 110,000 with UA. Aeroplan would be a great choice, but unfortunately I don't have enough points with them for the 2 tickets I'm looking for.

    Any thoughts will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    The only thing I saw under SQ rules was that upgrades must be confirmed 24 hours before flights so I am assuming you will be fine but I would call SQ just to confirm. Assuming they allow close in booking at that point, that should be enough time. Just keep an eye and make sure you get your ticket number.
