Interesting! Booked online.

Guys no need to call, long sell, everything is available online ;)

You may get lucky but if its not showing on SQ, dont even bother.

Are you saying that with Aeroplan if it is available online, it is bookable? I called them earlier tonight regarding a cretain flight and they told me that although they see it in their system (and showing 4 seats available on virtually EVERY route) they can not book it. Even called IT who looked into SQ inventory and said that it is not available on SQ!

Aeroplan won't let me into the booking process as I don't have enough miles, and I am ready to risk 135K amex points on a hunch that it might work.

SQ hasn't showed availability during this entire glitch.
SQ did show avail yesterday.
Um, yes it has. Since Sunday AM its been fine.
+1

I was contesting the 'readily' part. Very useful, thanks.

Seems like those are input for tickets in the last day or two and not from Sunday
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

So, I wonder if this would happen to a ticket I still have on hold from Sunday with UA.

I would guess yes (not definitely though, even tickets from last few days seems like a YMMV

Wow. Think they'll earn miles?
Maybe the earlier ones, but AC will just figure out a way to pay SQ to honor the awards later. Aeroplan is not a mess like United and they're gonna realize how much this is gonna cost them.

At least Westpac make it easy to earn Singapore miles! Unless they start opening it up to *A Partners.
