I am in the process of trying to book my fiancé and I one way flights from Brisbane to Europe in Business with Singapore next year using Velocity points (planning on returning either first or business using Qantas points).
When searching for availability through Velocity I can never find 2 x business rewards on the same flights (plenty of availability for a single ticket around that time next September. I understand from reading various PH articles this may be Singapore restricting award availability to Velocity members.
Does anyone know- Are Singapore likely to open up additional seats for Velocity members?
If not we have just enough point to transfer to Krisflyer and redeem this way to guarantee the seats. However I can not seem to find how to search for reward availability as I don’t have any points. IS there a way to search for availability before transferring points over to krisflyer?
Does anyone have any other advice for a business award redemption with other airline using Velocity points? I have come across Ethiad availability but the taxes are way higher than Singapore which was the reason I originally ruled it out.
