If I understand you're question correctly, ideally, you'd like to be on the waitlist for JFK-SIN, but ran out of miles after booking LAX-SIN?

If so, doing it the other way round would have been better. i.e, put yourself on the waitlist first for JFK-SIN. They don't deduct miles when on the waitlist, the system just checks that you have enough. THEN book the LAX-SIN ticket, which they will then deduct your miles. Your waitlist is still valid.

If the waitlist comes through, call Krisflyer immediately, cancel the LAX-SIN ticket (and pay the cancellation charge.) You HAVE to tell them to re-credit the miles ASAP, and they'll do so in 3-4 hours in my experience. Then confirm the waitlisted ticket with the re-credited miles..
