  • F Advantage LHR to SYD return help

    Hello all. I’m probably asking for the impossible here but would appreciate some thoughts. I currently have 906k Krisflyer miles and would like two F redemptions from LHR to SYD, return, at some point from September 2022 to August 2023, around three weeks apart. I know little enough about Krisflyer, but I do know enough to realise this is a big ask, if not impossible. And with only four seats on the 77W, well, really I’d prefer suites on a 388 on all four legs.

    Is there any strategy I could look for? Booking a year out? Booking for one person and buying cash tickets for the second?

    If it helps I have zero status with SQ, other than Blue. I do have OW Emerald and *G but being Europe based, have little to no opportunity to fly SQ.

    Hello VC10 Boy! Happy New Year!

    Out of curiousity, I did a test booking for redemption tix, and Suites / F tix for 2, for these sectors, are actually available, although these are for Advantage rather than Saver bookings.

    Advantage requires significantly more points than Saver redemptions. For example, one way SIN-Europe F/Suites Saver is 125K points, whereas Advantage is 220K points.

    As an example, there was availability for 2 F tix LHR-SYD-LHR in Oct 2022 (One sector was in R, rest were F). That said, these are all Advantage bookings, which require many more points than Saver. Not sure of Saver availability.



    Would love to hear suggestions from others on how to secure Saver redemptions in F/Suites or J.

      How can one snatch a Saver Award in First/Suites?

      1) Become a TPP.
      2) Get in touch with PPS Connect and ask for a waitlist to be inserted.
      3) Light a candle and pray to the Gods of Controllers.
      4) Enjoy your flight.

      In more seriousness: SIA is in the business of making money. Their revenue management will always take a view on whether or not they can sell seats and they will always keep one or two as a reserve (First Class often sells last minute).

      If you see six empty seats on any A380 flight departing in the next four weeks, you can pitch for waitlist approval.

      Non-PPS: be prepared to pay Advantage rates.
