From previous experience the replay was always up to 48hr irrespective of the complexity of the route.How long did it take you, from initial contact to all booked? Especially between when you submitted the screenshots and they called you to take payment?
I'm also going for an ambitiously circuitous routing, so I'd also guess the processing time is inversely proportional to simplicity of route.

Special LifeMiles Promo For OMAAT Readers - Buy Miles For 1.375 Cents Each! - One Mile at a Time
I just signed up! 1.35cpm, no expiry of miles, don't have to wait for bonuses or buy at lesser rates. I'm happy! Bought the top rate. Will keep an eye on miles accrual. Miles posted immediately.Just wondering if anyone else signed up to one of the Club LifeMiles monthly miles buying plans?
I did in April, must've been a moment of madness!
The first batch posted on sign up...my card was then charged 3 weeks ago for the next lot...still no miles. The T&Cs say this should be 'immediate'. I have emailed support a week ago but still no sign of the elusive miles.
SQ usually restricts 'premium' business class (and first class) to its own members. Regional business class is usually available though. Sometimes you may get lucky with a premium seat operated on some regional flights, or in cases where they introduce a new plane or route and take a little while to 'block' it.
I don't believe it's (generally) possible to book anything other than regional business class on SQ using LifeMiles. I.e. Singapore Airlines doesn't release premium awards to partners for most flights on long-haul configured aircraft. This may be different if booking very close to departure.
I flew this year to SIN-IST and it’s operated on the refurbished 777-200 business class, lie flat old a380 business class seats. I was speaking to the FA and he said they use the lie flats on this route all the time and that it’s meant to change to a A350.
