Award Redemption Singapore Airlines EWR-SIN Business award availablity

    You posted quite a few times about the new, non-stop SIA flight between EWR and SIN, including when seats became bookable earlier this month. Unfortunately, it seems that saver rate business class award redemptions are unavailable on this route (outbound and return) through the end of schedule. I'd love to hear SIA's explanation for this, as there are certainly plenty of empty business class seats on these flights (like all of them).

    It only became bookable a few weeks ago. Airlines dont always release seats for awards right away. Also, generally airlines don't make promises that guarantee releasing award space. Not much you can do but wait. If you want to take the flight and waitlist is an option, go for it.
