Search on United.com for SAVER awards only, or use Singapore's website.
In my experience, however, Singapore's website doesn't always show all award space and you may need to call if you see Star Alliance awards elsewhere that don't show up on SQ's site.
I searched on united web site and did calendar view, I saw some business saver space on luftansa,  for 85k united, I called SQ to book it, she said she can only waitlist me and she cant do that on partner bookings. she also couldnt tell me what the YQ would be bec she could only waitlist me, HUCA? any idea what the YQ would be?

What is the best currency to use to book LH F transatlantic?
I have UR, MR, UA and Marriott but I may be able to get something else if it's significantly better.

Trying to help someone book a trip to Israel for Sukkot. He has plenty of UA miles...is his only option seeing whats available on UA and booking accordingly... there is nothing direct and not much even with a normal stopover. Yom Kipur is Wednesday 10/9 so need to get from NY to TLV between then and Sukkot.

I was looking for 2 seats Bus on BR JFK-TPE but all the dates shows only 1 seat (Expert flyer also). Anyone knows how long before the flight they open more seats?
