Question Redeeming during “summer”

Was wondering if someone could recommend a better option than redeeming what is a fortune in miles to get a C class seat during late June to New York – returning end July / early August. This is clearly the height of the US/European summer and as such most SQ flights are full except for the new planes at twice the mileage….

Any suggestions?

The new planes will always be twice the mileage - there are no saver awards for C class on the 77W or A380.

You could try redeeming a ticket in Y class?

Or try redeeming on other *A carriers?
A tad more expensive than savers awards but heaps cheaper than non-saver I'd imagine.

Try searching with the NH availability tool. You'd have to sign up for (free) membership of NH mileage club.

There's also seatcounter.com
