I'm headed to AMS later this sumer for a family gathering with Mrs. Elite Flyer

I was able to get to the final page on UA with:

8/7/2012: JFK-FRA: Dep: 8:35pm Arrive 10:45am+1 SQ25 J A380
8/8/2012: FRA-AMS: 12:55 p.m. Arrive LH992 J 737-500

Return:
AMS-EWR: 9:15 Arrive 11:45am.

Unfortunately, it got held but the segment was not ticketed. Now, UA is saying that I am on a "wait list for the flight, and its not too promising." :-(

I think I may have to switch the out-bound to UA through IAD now in order to get the UA BF on the 757-200

I was waitlisted twice and called up and they managed to ticket it right away. Can't hurt to try calling.
And FYI it was a Lufthansa flight booked through UA.

Please help me out as I have never booked a trip like this before.
I put on hold:

1/16- JFK to SIN/ SIN to MLE (on Singapore Airlines)
1/22- MLE to SIN/ SIN to LHR (on Singapore Airlines)
1/28- LHR to EWR (on United)
all in business for the 120k pp.

I am doing the London stopover for my wife.

Is there any way around the fees for the London leg. My taxes came out to $600 or so for the trip and I am assuming its from that leg ??? Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks

LHR charges high 'luxury' taxes.

I'm still finding good availability on MEL-SIN.
I'm thinking maybe another few thousand FF's like all of us grabbed whatever seats possible, and therefore there is no longer good availability.

Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

Shame, I reticketed it already for UA metal. I will keep a look out for availability on the SQ A-380, which seems to continue to have availability, just not on my dates. The return is impossible because it leaves FRA to early in the morning to connect from AMS, and I do not wish to spend the night prior in FRA.

Had a ticket on hold in my account.
Just purchased it 5 minutes ago and it ticketed without a problem.

Even with their systems back up, it seems J availability for SIN-MLE is still much better.

Hope this is permanent!

I'd imagine he's booked for MEL/SYD?
