Booking upgrade on SQ

I am going to fly BCN-SIN in June and is of course trying to book myself into a class that i can (try) to upgrade with miles.

On the SQ website i'm getting good fares but they book into H,Q and E, nothing else is available. From the Eurobonus website i see that only Y and B are upgradeable. If SQ do not sell this classe what do i do??

Any experience with this?

Thanks,

Jupeter

Basically, SQ does not want people to upgrade into their business class. You can buy Y and B fares via a travel agent, but there are near-full fares and ridiculously expensive.

Almost impossible to use the Y->C upgrades since those tickets are so expensive that you could've booked C in the first place.

The Business (D) to First upgrades are easier to use since D is available on the CRWSTAR (RTW) tickets.

No. The A380 Suites are class R, not F, and are not available for upgrade at any price -- even to KrisFlyer members.

Does this means that you can't book an award flight either in the A380 suites as they are R class and not F?
