Not a single open F seat on SQ25 or SQ26 in all of 2015. :(

What are my chances with a waitlisting a weekday in the low season? Travelling solo, flexible scheduling maybe waitlist 3 days in a row.

ETA: Of course, the second I post this a few are showing up this month on SQ25  1/7 1/8 1/13 1/24. But how could I plan a trip on such short notice?

Dude, 1/5 could be considered short notice. 1/7? 1/24? Ha. I've been able to plan two week itineraries in less time.

It's weird, I started searching last night and none of those were there, now they are. If you can make it work then go ahead! 57,375 UR or MR- but of course you already knew that.

Can't personally take advantage, but you should. Not let two days or two weeks keep you from doing it!

I'll already be on a big award redemption then- but one I booked 10 months ago :)    Problem for me is I need at few months lead time to accommodate work and family considerations, and it's tough to mix airlines with late inventory drops (LH, SQ) with those that open some when the schedule opens (many others)
