If Japan is the destination of choice, you can consider trying for Fukuoka/Nagoya/Osaka. These may be in less demand than Tokyo, just try to avoid flights on A330 and B777-200/300, as these have the much older less desirable regional business class seats.

Thanks for the advice.

Tokyo is currently either the 787,a380 or 777-300er. Personally prefer not to go for 787(some may disagree) but the seat pitch abit small and very hard seats. Try to get the bulkhead if u can. Have managed 4 seats in April before (sakura season) so definitely possible if u book immediately the moment when the slot open

It is definitely possible to redeem for 4 business saver award tickets, perhaps you are picking a popular route, and your chances will be further reduced if you are looking at a date that is either popular (e.g. school holidays, weekends, etc), or not too far into the future. Which destination are you looking at?
Yea i got 4 saver to seoul in 787
Osaka had availability too

I would like to seek guidance on how date change for saver ticket work. If I were to book a ticket for Nov 2020 now (Mar 2020) and decided that I would not proceed with the trip, how far away can I postpone my ticket to?

Nope. Validity is one year from date of ticket issuance.

He book now, ticket issued now, ticket is valid for one year from date of travel.


Example:

3 months return ticket issued today 6 March, for travel 20 March, the return has to be within 3 months. If outbound is cancelled, the ticket is valid for a year till 5 March next year. Can book for travel 7 Oct, return within 3 months.

Thanks for the info. Guess I have to take the risk to book with my expiring miles now and pray that things will get better for travel in Nov/Dec period.

Assuming if I have to postpone my trip, does it also mean that I have to complete the return trip within one year of ticket issuance?

SQ cancelled my SQ637/638 SIN-NRT on new suites (2 seats) in March/April.

I’m searching for replacement dates and basically there are ZERO dates that have 2 available savers for rebooking for the same flights end of this year or next year.

SQ so far has responded to my requests and said they won’t open up award space and therefore won’t rebook. They say either keep the ticket open and rebook later, book the other B773 flight with award space (but that’s F and not suites), or redeposit and pay the usd75.

That sort of sucks big time.

Well they just extended free cancellation till july. They do it month by month. But if govt stop blocking travel by oct, ur best chances is to pay cancellation fees

I applied refund for my redemption ticket on 9 Apr and on 20 May, I received an email from SQ informing me that I will receive the refund within 4 to 6 weeks. The miles were credited on 20May and the airport taxes were refunded to my credit card about a week later.

Edit: The ticket was for travel in April 2020.
