KUL-SIN is a very competitive market, so unlikely to be outrageously high (unless flying during Eid)... so depends on the market I'd imagine.

Would OPs boss not be paying for the flights anyway, or indeed why do they have to be in CE? Sounds like it’s not too urgent!

in my line of work I am often required to travel with very short notice, and often book a couple of hours before the flight, so there is a market there.

and if it not works out? Well, i spend the night in my own bed and work from home..
Did you end up booking? Your next challenge will be finding reasonably priced hotels (assuming you are going to central London), when booking with a days notice. Hotel prices have been eye-wateringly expensive in London recently!

i ended up booking. The meeting is rescheduled till next week as i was not the only one who could get a good flight. When i was flying i would not stay over as i have a meeting in France on friday. I usually do not stay over in the middle of london as it is to crowded and overpriced.
i did book 3 other flights today for the month of August bringing my total waiting flights till the beginning of October to 16 single flights.
i need to plan one other trip to heathrow, and in the evening to madrid. Just waiting for confirmation of my US peers if they can make it.
