Bookingtickets on *A Carriers from separate A3 accounts

Looking to book 2 x SQ tickets. 1 from my account and 1 from my wife's.
Is there a way I can search on the A3 website that would show the number of award tickets available on a specific flight? (We both have only enough miles to purchase 1 ticket each).
Would ANA *A award search match A3 award availability?
​​​​​​.
thanks

Do you or your wife have status with A3? you need to have at least Silver status to use the family pool option. If not, you have to do the transfer with a fee.

You can also use Aeroplan or United to search for an award. Also keep in mind that SQ only releases Y to their partner for long-haul flights, and limited J/F to their partners in short haul and medium haul.

Thanks. I think doing the transfer may be the safest thing. I assume if I transfer to my account I can book tickets for my wife from my account?
Unfortunately neither of us are Silver.
I can see the tickets availbale on SQ (short-haul) on ANA"s award search so am hoping A3 would see the same availability

You could also book the tickets over the telphone. Booking fee of (EUR20 ?) per ticket will be charged.

SQ (short-haul) is frankly wasting your miles. There should be cheap cash alternatives. What route is this?

Maybe I am missing something, but somebody could just do a search for 2-pax availability on that day/route? I'm happy to do that if you post the date. For example (random date):



Once you know that there is 2-pax availability you can just book two single/separate awards via the website, no?

And, on the off-chance something changes between the two bookings, aren't awards fully refundable without any fee?

Here you go for October 14. The second column (21K miles per person) indicates business class availability for 2 pax.



And when I select the first business option, it shows these fees:

thank you

Could you also look for 2 Business tickets on the 13th October please.
We arrive into HKG 17:00 on the 13th, so may fly straight down to SIN and overnight there, then get an early flight (<24 hours stop-over) to DPS

Regards
John

I (as India).
Maybe it would be easier for you, if you just call A3 to let make the bookings?

Your printscreen does not help, as seat availability for awards were not shown with this search method. Use the search method "awards + upgrades". There are the needed booking classes displayed. So no need of your advice above...
