I'm trying to book a famly of 4 in J from BNE to SIN over the 2023 Easter school holidays. All of the saver fares are on waitlist. Has anyone had much luck getting waitlisted flights over school hols?

great question! i was just about to book my flights in July, and all my desired options for SIN to/from CGK or BKK suddenly changed to waitlised or not available. I swear they knew! the flights to/from BNE to SIN are still available though.

Yeah, all of the school holidays seem to be snapped up quickly.

Update on my progress. I was able to book 3 Saver seats return without waitlisting. So, I grabbed those and then booked the 4th seat on an Advantage fare. Paid an extra 60k for the priveledge but at least it's all locked in now.

if possible you can waitlist on the 4th one - but i guess it will cost you more than 60k to change :)

There was probably a more economical way of doing it but I don't have much experience with SIN's booking system. Not sure if I can 'downgrade' from the Advantage fare to a waitlist Saver fare and recoup the points?
