Is better to find date that can buy immediately. I don't like to be under wait list lol. Also if peak season the miles also higher.

Depends on the season.

If peak season prob no chance to open up.

If off season high chance when it comes closer to the date.

But for me ya prefer to just book rather than waitlist.

plenty of time to wait.

usually nearer to departure date if there are plenty of unsold seats, they will release some for redemption. priority is given for PPS and Gold members.

Is definitely still slightly cheaper then you purchase economy round trip since you are only paying tax for your departure flight to korea if you use your miles. But if only can select 1 way, I will recommend you to fly back by business class instead so you have more luggage allowance for checking in.
Hi I'm flying to London, I'm only planning to redeem one trip. The airport tax for SIN to LHR is $60, but for LHR to SIN, it is 240 pounds, is it still worth it to fly biz class for return trip, or should I just fly biz class for SIN to LHR. If I need the extra baggage allowance, and also experience wise, for the LHR to SIN route, do I get to use the kris flyer lounge at LHR?

You need to do the comparison yourself see which way is cheaper if price is a concern. There is silverkris lounges in london heathrow.

There's one component of the Heathrow airport taxes which is 2x for biz and 3x for first class of economy class.

You can always pay to enter the lounges. Or get yourself a DBS Altitude card. It gives you 2 free access to a Priority Lounge a year.

A tip would be to fly out from another country. Can refer to this article, https://milelion.com/2019/07/09/her...ensive-airports-to-redeem-award-flights-from/

Try Amsterdam or Zurich

ya. i intend to redeem miles for 1 leg of the trip to Korea. and purchase the other leg on economy. so after checking , one way to korea is around $500 plus and return economy is around $700 plus. what i mean i after adding taxes if i redeem one way on business plus the return economy, the total cost might be close to $700 too.

yeah, i know the smarter way is definitely taking business class back making full use of the baggage, just that returning back to Singapore the mood slightly different ma.. lol
How many miles do you have now?
