Does anyone know if the SIN-PEN leg actually bookable separately via QFF?

I need to fly SIN-PEN on 25/4 so this sounds perfect (means I can avoid AirAsia or Scoot) but nothing comes up for that route on a QFF award search except MH (or 3K) via KL.

A380 on the "way out" and 777 on the "way back". I booked PEN-SIN / SIN-xDXB-PEN as I'll be with the SO and this needs to pass as a mildly convincing holiday rather than just flying around pointlessly because it was cheap. Probably going to credit to AS but need to look into my options.

I'd guess it should be, but EK may have zeroed out inventory following yesterday's error fare which allowed PEN-SIN return to route PEN-xDXB-SIN-xDXB-PEN for a touch over $1k AUD in F. Been ticketed almost 24 hours and crossing my all my fingers and toes in the hope they'll honour it 😁
Please don't the use the e or the m words. You make a rod for your own back and for others, too.

EK had already started cancelling bookings when I posted but if you want to try pin it on me for using the e word then go for it.

If you are across the the original discussion thread on Flyertalk you'd know that GSTP had been shouting from the rooftops about this, and an FT member had called Emirates directly to ask about changing dates on this fare well before I posted :rolleyes:

Even though there's plenty of availability on the SIN-PEN route QFF is still not showing them available as award flights at all. Does anyone know if it'd be worth calling QF to see if they can book partner awards on this route?

Do you have a source for this? As far as I can see, tickets are still be sold.
Maybe they've deferred the start, not sure. I got an email from Qantas to say they had to make changes to my booking, but in reality the booking has disappeared completely (both in the QF and EK MMBs). So at least on April 25 it has been cancelled I would say.

Looks like the launch is delayed until 1 May.
