First Suites waitlist question

Is it possible to book a ticket at the standard mileage level and then waitlist the same flight at the saver level? I i tried the waitlist ticket but it wouldn't let me book the confirmed one. This is a trip for two and I booked my ticket at the saver level...was trying to book my wife's at the standard level an hope to get lucky and a saver waitlist spot open up before the trip....do i need to just bite the bullet to ensure we are on the same flight and not do a waitlist at all so i can actual confirm a seat for her at the standard level?

Why don't you pick up the phone and call Krisflyer and ask them?

If it can't be done online, then that's what you gotta do.

Wow, really good answer! Skype?
You can't waitlist awards.
In my experience, you can cash in the award and rebook at the lower mileage level. I would worry, however, that that thing would disappear altogether.
Why not book 2 separate awards, and then try to get at least one for less miles when it appears?

thats my plan now. i cancelled the waitlist saver award and just booked 1 saver and 1 standard...will be checking to see if another saver opens up but doubt it will....oh well, it will be a nice surprise if it does!
