So I guess the work around some airlines do is the "cancellation: is free (whatever that means) however to redeposit the points that cost money.......

Also, some airlines have a free hold of 24 hours before you pay for the ticket.  I think once you pay, your 24 hour cancellation window is over.

Im my example, Singapore does not allow holds. I believe the law is not so clear cut with point tickets

United 737-900  (layout 3)
Do I need to upgrade to Economy Plus for an overnight flight?
Is the legroom in regular economy terrible?

I sprung for it.  Partly because I remembered a flight credit I had.  Chatted to convert to ETC, and upgraded. (FFC has to be applied at time of purchase. ETC can be used for upgrades.)
