    Don't give up your seat! Just waitlist on a different reservation. If you can't do it online contact SQ again and see if they will do it for you. Tell them you want the SIN-SYD in first and waitlist on SFO-SIN. Tell them if it clears you will cancel the other one. Once they do it, call back and ask them to downgrade you on the SFO-SIN to business for the same points. It's worth a try.
    You don't have to have the points to waitlist.

    @MarkS, I'm learning a bunch of new stuff in this thread. You don't have to have points in your account to wait list? I've always been told that I had to have enough points in my account to set up a wait list .

    Sounds like I'm getting away with things you aren't supposed to with SQ!

    All I know is I had a reservation from SFO-CPT for 80,750 on hold with about 70K points in the account. The agent gave me some time to transfer the points in. Then I waitlisted LAX-NRT on the website in first which is 74,500 or something. I ultimately cancelled the SFO-CPT, the waitlist didn't clear then I held this JFK-BKK on the 70K and have since put in enough to cover. Everything with the exception of LAX-NRT has been on the phone.

    Don't tell on me!
