Interesting. I'll have to wait for TLV-FRA to open up.

You can do TLV-XXX-FRA as well.

Does SQ allow mixed partners on a one way award ? And will it be the same amount of miles, and YQ ?

yes, yq is whatever the yq is. (except ua) You need to call them though to book.

Yes. Yes. YQ might be slightly more due to the extra leg.

Thanks for the info. Now just got to hope that space is still there when the miles post. Btw, any data points on whether TY points, or MR transfer faster  into SQ ?

Transfer MR by 1030pm EST and it will (usually) be in SQ by 230am EST.
