On many flights with many open J seats, UA rather giving away to its Non-rev than releasing saver J awards.

If it's illegal by Singapore law, SQ would have an official policy announced about this matter.

Try to book PVG-SIN in F, SIN-HKT in J.

1) Only way is to call? Will SQ charge a fee for calling.

2) I am assuming online discount went away now?

I have seen PN clearing at T-48 overnight, even it was J9 C0 D0 Z0 P0. This is rare.

However, P>0 is better indication for PN waitlist to clear even if PN0 is shown throughout.

If the GS needs to change plan and fly a different day, does the companion MUST make the same change in order to travel with the companion?
