I can emphathise. On its best day, SQ award bookings for J and F are still painful to get. Fact is, they have to offer an awards program but they dont make it particularly easy. When I was PPS (1K equivalent?) Id still be waitlisted all the time and have to harry their operators to clear several weeks before a flight (which they often eventually did). Id hate to be an alliance partner member trying to redeem on SQ.

Though in this instance, it seems to be a multi partner problem with UA that has now been resolved except for SQ. I dont see why theyd be in a hurry to fix it frankly.

RTW tickets can usually be changed en-route.
Yes, this is exactly what Im doing. If we dont get I well fly X for this leg, my main concern is baggage limits and not so much cabin/seating as we plan to sleep during the red eye anyway.

For future reference, try and book *A RTW redemptions a year in advance and be prepared to amend routes if I or F is important to you. I was flexible and still landed with a suboptimal routing. You can call in to change flights when I becomes available, but have to pay $125 for each change, on SQ anyway.

40K F awards available 3/25, 3/27, 3/28
Great advice - thanks shall try this. Your nick name lives up to its promise!
