can share how far ahead you had to book?
think of booking the suites but can't seem to find availability easily...
googled around and it seems like most booked about a week or two
that's too short to plan a trip...
Help you a bit.

2x FIRST CLASS SUITE Savers available on 13/aug and 14/aug for SIN-ZRH.
2x FIRST CLASS SUITE Savers available on 1/July/2020 for SIN-ZRH

and if you have the points, 2 x first class suite savers on 27/Aug ZRH-SIN..
so just nice round trips..

but hor, pls do check the seat maps to ensure that it is the 6 seat seat map... and there might be last minute changes as well.

is it make sense to redeem one way ticket?
like i only have enough point to redeem one way business class tix to tokyo
and i want to experience flight in business class...
Why not? My wife and i have done that twice (suites/biz to tokyo, scoot back to SG ... but some might argue that it makes more sense to do the other way instead).

The main problem is that one way flights on full service carriers are normally freaking ultra expensive, so mostly bopian can only fly low cost carrier.

Suites/biz outta SG can enjoy KRISFLYER private room/lounge but cannot have the luggage allowance back

If Suites/biz back to SG, depending on the airport lounge standards.

Yup but the problem is when your holiday ends u are already depressed. Then fly back on budget airline and eat the dog food that scoot serves, compared with the Kyo kaiseki on Sq F ...... feel even more depressed lol.

Hi guys, I am intending to redeem Taiwan on a350 business class with my wife and 1yo baby next year. Want to check with you guys if the bed will have space for my baby to sleep? My wife wants to sit near with me but those seats with bassinet is a single seat.

No there won't be enough space. I'm not sure the Taiwan flights whether SQ uses the 2013 biz or 2018 regional biz class seats, but in both cases there is no "double bed," each individual bed won't have enough space for a baby to squeeze in.

TOP up meaning airport tax? Their airport taxes usually about $120/pax

For this leg, I only redeem Y class because go SilkAir back SQ. So J class not worth imo
