How does LH availability tend to be with Singapore? Called in about 3 different dates I saw available on UA and all weren't available with Krisflyer.
You gave them flight numbers?

Confirm availability on Aeroplan to make sure UA doesn't show phantom.

FTFY.
Don't make it sound like you disagree with me when in fact you're just adding another option.

It's a bit early to definitely label this awesome. That largely depends on an as of yet unannounced transfer ratio.

Does 45 minutes work to connect in FRA between LH and SQ?

No luggage.

And would it help to come in on business class rather than economy? The plane just has those blocked off seats, so really only worth it if it enables SQ.
I remember when a coke was a nickel, and you could buy VRs in OD.

It's not a legal connection
If your first flight is a few minutes late you miss it and are a no show
Had a client do it with 1 hour this week, but he booked the Vip service transfer. That helpes for security and passport
Btw sq in fra doesn't allow web check in

Would it work if I do that? How do I book it?

All other options are no good at this point.

If I book SQ suites standard, and then saver opens at a later point, can I get a refund?

The Vip service will get it done faster, but they still have to drive you to their lounge clear immigration and security and then get you there on time... so if you are delayed a few minutes you are done... I dont even know if they would take it for such a short connection
Google Vip frankfurt airport, you will find it. Its about 450 dollars for max 2 people

With the VIP and without luggage as long as the plane pulls up to gate 15 minutes before the next departure you'll make it, nothing to worry about

I disagree
If it's a connecting flight from europe, they have to clear immigration in germany as they are leaving shengen (thats the eu zone) they can only do that in the lounge... sq can close the gate 15-20 min before departure. 30 min maybe and that's really if all runs smoothly... worth risking a connecting ticket for that?

LH 400 opened up so I ended up taking that.

I wasn't willing to spend the extra $400 on this trip.
