    I've got 2 Y seats booked on SQ32 (SIN-SFO) in September but I'd like to bump them up to business class with points. Currently, those seats aren't bookable -- just waitlist.

    Wondering how likely it is that these will clear? I'd rather not transfer a boatload of SPG points to KF if it's unlikely to go through. Does KF wait a certain period to start releasing J award space to its own members?

    FYI, Expertflyer shows no seats booked so far -- just a few blocked seats.

    No way to know unfortunately. Does EF let you set alerts for space on SQ?

    Plenty of space already shows on EF already, but it's all apparently waitlisted.

    I meant for saver space. You might want to also check manually on a regular basis. Sometimes you can see space before waitlists are activated.
