Was just searching from SIN in F, sorry.

Wouldn't that be 130K then?

If you get an agent to put in the long sell, sure.
The challenge will be finding an agent that even knows how to long sell and then actually agree to do it.  But it should work just find with any *A miles.

So you'd find the availability on AP? Then ask whose ever *A miles you have to long sell and book?

Probably also available with US.

US reps won't give you those at all. Just got off the phone on the 3rd try.

135K vs. 120K with UA, not a big deal for a shot at an A380 suite.
you mean business obviously. Still you're referring to US - Australia routings. the Australia - Europe / Tel Aviv have a much larger gap between UA-US and AC...

That's because 9/10 US reps have never heard of a long sell.

Yup, you quoted before my delete ;)

Yes, search on AC for the long sell availability.

AC shows 4+ available but SQ doesn't even have medium availability (let alone saver)

Date        Carrier    Flight  From  Depart    To    Arrive    A/C  St  Availability
----------- ---------  ------  ----  --------  ----  --------  ---  --  ------------
19 Oct 2012 SQ         67      BCN   18:15     SIN   13:20 +1  77W  0   FS+  CS+

Still think you can get it via a long sell?

AC is showing tons of availability some of which SQ doesn't even have at saver.

IMO, youre wasting your time.

As I said already, getting a long-sell booked is not easy at all.
