Hi All,
I have multiple return waitlisted saver bookings (since October last year) for my parents Singapore to JFK in Suites (for 50th wedding anniversary). Several of these have had their outbound legs confirmed but the return legs have not come through. My parents are getting a bit anxious about booking accommodation etc and I can see several return sectors available at the standard redemption rate. Does anyone know if SQ will let me confirm just the outbound leg of the waitlist ? (and cancel the unconfirmed return leg). I can then grab the return standard awards, lose a few extra hundred thousand points but more importantly keep the oldies happy!
Thanks

Hi tbd, if you ask them to split the booking they will put your mother and father on different bookings. Best just to phone through and ask SQ to cancel waitlisted sectors so you can issue outbound sectors. Hope the 'oldies' have a great anniversary journey.

Can you tell us how it went with the strategy. I'm wondering if it would be worth to call up the call centre and see if you can get the return legs issued. It may be a redemption but that number of miles does get good service too.

Also, you have demonstrated a good point that we often see. The trade off between certainty and miles. At some stage you have to commit and then put in place all of the other travel arrangements.

BTw, last year Mrs Albatross & I had a 25th year wedding anniversary suites trip...it was worth every mile.

Alby
