That's what I thought but the system isn't letting him do it. Also, I have to book two one ways as it can't combine a star alliance ticket and a singapore ticket into one round trip.
I thought they were doing a soft opening according to this article Singapore Airlines reopens Sydney, Melbourne loungesnd pretty much everything at SYD was closed including the lounge
I flew to BKK via SIN last week in J. The flight was 9:05am and pretty much everything at SYD was closed including the lounge. They only served breakfast around 10am with snacks available later (chips, chocolate bars, instant noodle et) . I had a one hour connection and it wasn't quite enough time in the lounge so I was left without a proper meal for like 8 hours. Thought they used to do 2 meals? If you take this flight, you might want to pack some food.
Edit: added SYD.
I've been randomly looking Jan-May for J/F 1-2 Weeks ago and there was heaps of J's in Jan/Feb/Mar on the a350 (2 flights ex-Mel), even saw some with 4 J pax available in Feb. Now there's zilch until 27th March when it switches to 4x777 flights ex-Mel with heaps J seats available.Anyone seeing/saw J Saver/Advantage for MEL-SIN in Dec-Feb or is it too late now, appears to be empty for all 3 months I searched, in fact until end of March 2022. I think I might have seen some a few weeks ago but hadn't booked anything (my fault), but it seems Y is also dry, which seems rather odd, makes. me think that these few months have been blocked out. Though ADL and SYD are showing availability... unless there is unprecedented demand from MEL due to the countless lockdowns we had...
You're right @BriarFlyer - the current promo just ended at 2359 SGT on 22 Nov, which is 259 AEDST on 23 Nov. I made my transfers at around 0100 AEDST on 23 Nov as I'd read that points post to KF instantly. Just wanted to make sure that every single possible point that could be transferred was transferred (not running a business and putting thousands through the card every month means that I deal with smaller point balances than most here haha)!Is there another bonus offer? I thought the last one ended yesterday (22/11.) Hope I'm wrong and that's not bad news for you MathNerd.
It seems that bookings for next year haven't been released beyond 29 Oct (ex Europe to Aus). November would generally be open by now?
Was that ever possible since VA isn't part of Star Alliance?I'm still having a nightmare of a time getting my ticket booked. It is impossible to get them on the phone and now they are saying they can't add my MEL-SYD flight on Virgin to a star alliance award ticket, SYD-HND-YVR on NH. Has anyone else had this problem? It seems crazy, if I have a separate ticket, I won't be able to check my bags through and other hassles. Any advice please?
Yes. The call centre seems to be struggling. There are segments that I can see available online but they can't see them on their end. This is for a couple of tickets that I wanted to be on a single itinerary rather than 2 itineraries - just so to avoid things getting complicated at transit in Changi. They could not even merge two confirmed redemption itinerary to make it a single one!!!I'm still having a nightmare of a time getting my ticket booked.

Was previously possible from VA/Velocity end - but not from krisflyerWas that ever possible since VA isn't part of Star Alliance?

Don't have an answer but ex Sydney is the same. I was looking at March and April.. No results evenAsking for a friend - who ain’t the shiniest ring in the display cabinet - why can’t I book SQ R or F to Frankfurt ex MEL any time soon?
