Strategy - Better to Waitlist & Book or Waitlist Many

Hello -

I'm trying to experience the A380 suites. Wanting to go from SIN - LHR. On the A380 - there are only waitlist saver awards on the entire month I want to travel. There is a day that has a SAVER AWARD on a 777 and a Waitlisted SAVER on the A380. Would it be advisable to hold book both (possible) and then hope the w/l clears? I have other plans that I need to build around both sides of this flight (meetings, hotels, other flights etc.)

Thanks for any tips!

There are a number of threads that cover SQ Waitlisting.

How likely are waitlisted awards to clear?

You can't assume a waitlisted flight will clear. I have had a number of waitlisted flights that never cleared.

In your situation I would book the 777 Saver Award and Waitlist on the A380.
