Singapore Suites SIN-LHR

The A380 flights SIN-LHR and LHR-SIN with *new* Singapore Suites don't appear on award booking searches on the SA website. I've tried many dates between now and next January -- even when the seats are first released for dates in January 2021, those flights don't appear. It's not that they appear as "not available" or "waitlist", they don't appear at all. The other flights on that route do appear (including flights on A380s that do not have the new suites). Does anyone know what's going on here? Are those award seats released on a different timetable since they are more highly sought?

SQ322 (ex-SIN) will not release any award seats (both saver and advantages), SQ317 (ex-LHR) however, will release some award space. One of the 777-300ER will be swap for new A380 during July this year. Might be able to grab some.
You might want to check on SIN-CDG route as well for new suite award space as others have suggested in other threads/posts

You need to PPS elite to have a chance to book an award for the new Suites on this particular route. PPS elite will see different availability than non-PPS.

tried with accounts from other family members, SQ317 shows new suite award space all across Blue, Silver and Gold and none on SQ322

I checked a lot of random dates in October for SIN-LHR and the best I could see was waitlist on SQ322. PPS too.

Some of the other flights to LHR, particularly SQ318 had saver space. But this is a 777-300ER though.

Thanks for testing it, so what we can conclude is that ex-SIN new suite for this route is reserved for PPS while ex-LHR is open for all. Not sure whether its true for all the other long haul sector in the long run.

OK....so I just tested SQ322 for 20th Jan.

saver is waitlist for 125k miles.
advantage - available for 220k miles.

So yes. Im able to see availability on this route and particularly this flight.

I think you misread my stuff. I was interested to see if other route, like CDG or any other long haul follow this pattern (there are still availability since they just roll out the service), not asking this SIN-LHR route on a later date, but no further testing is needed I think, time will tell 😂😂

I was interested to see if there was actually any availability on that particular flight after you mentioned it.
