Wanna go NYC-ZRH round trip but want to push in one seg on SQ Suites. What would be the best way to book on either of the following routs. As far as I know the only way to book the suites is with KrisFlyer miles. How should I book the other segments? with SQ or?

JFK-FRA-ZRH-NYC or NYC-ZRH-FRA-NYC
 
Thanks!

you will find availability easier to FRA vs from FRA. Besides why not book it as OW to ZRH via FRA?

Thanks for your response!
I looked into it. For a OW via FRA I'll have to pay the *A award price which is 80k vs. booking it separate JFK-FRA for 57.5 and then FRA-ZRH -let say- for 15k UA miles = 72.5

My only question now, is there a better way to book the FRA-ZRH leg?

Exactly my plan. The question is will Singapore book me NYC all the way to zrh ? Or they will say "we don't fly there " if they will. Is it for the same amount of miles 57500?

Sorry. I did not see the reply

You can, by calling up but you will not get the discount price, CMIIW.

You can book jfk-fra with sq & see how much a paid rt is fra-zrh. Sometimes it can be very cheap

It's a 50 minute flight, it may be quicker to drive there.
