It was quite close to departure (within 1 month). Revenue tickets were sold out and saver and standard redemption were unavailable at first, so once it becomes available, I just presumed I am the last, which would not help the cause with just 1 or 2 in front and a full cabin (say we expect at most 2 cancellations/no-shows?)

So it appears that SQ will now be flying to CPT daily from late (28?) March 2018. My wait list for July still hasn't cleared and all additional dates around the date I am currently waitlisted for remain standard redemptions only (from Thursday to Saturday; my waitlist is for the Friday). Quite counter intuitively, I don't suppose having the daily CPT option would make it easier for me - since it means all those original SIN-JNB-SIN flights will only get busier with a new tagon to CPT..?

Jfyi I waitlisted myself on HKG-SIN-JNB in J Saver on Thursday, the first HKG-SIN sector cleared a few hours later in the day followed by SIN-JNB the next day. I think you will just need to wait till you get closer to the date of travel - though with high level of uncertainty - I have had wait lists in the past for over 6 months that never cleared eventually.

Thanks GR1. I am not banking on it. It's a Friday departure and if it clears I'm already overseas. A little of a hassle to make calls, get hotels, apply for leave etc. I'm already ticketed to fly Wednesday. I'm inclined to just take whatever it is before I get on the first sector, which is 12 days before the wait listed flight

I checked the seat maps for both my ticketed flight and the waitlisted one, by making a phony revenue booking. Strangely, the flight I'm ticketed on looks half full, while the one I am waitlisting for is completely empty. I know this may not be a good indication in economy, but for business? Everyone should select their seats right? Even stranger, it's possible to waitlist saver tickets for the flight I am already ticketed on, whereas saver option is unavailable for the (empty) flight I am currently waitlisted on. Should I call them (this is four months down the road)? :S

Btw, a very happy CNY if you happen to read this over the weekend
