Combining advantage and saver

Trying to book IAH-MAN-ZRH as one ticket but agent told me not possible because first segment is advantage and second is saver. Is this true?

What airline is the MAN-ZRH segment? In theory they should be able to offer the whole thing at Advantage rates but maybe there is some inter-airline bug that doesn't allow it. Is "agent" a travel agent or SQ helpline employee?

AFAIK, if you intend you use a Star Alliance award for the whole itinerary (North America - Europe), availability for the SQ sector (IAH-MAN) must be in Saver class. Otherwise you will need to use two awards - SQ Advantage award from IAH-MAN and intra-Europe star alliance award from MAN-ZRH.

If you have enough miles, book it as two awards, or save the miles on the short haul sector and buy it.
SQ at IAH should check your bags all the way through, even on separate tickets with SQ and LX.
