    I just saw this banner on .bomb:
    ".bomb is currently undergoing maintenance, you may experience slower response times. We apologize for the inconvenience."
    I would appreciate any treat you smart guys found. (PM welcome);)

    Why even bother trying when we know United will just blame SHARES and cancel whatever...

    Probably loading up more details on more fees and ways to give UA more money.

    Tried to switch from TG to SQ this morning for SIN-BKK and was told even though the inventory was there SQ was not confirming any space at all.

    Someone needs to kick them out of *A for that batman. :(

    Or at least a credible threat.

    Ha..Ha..Ha.. *A wouldn't kick out SQ at all for that kind of batman and a credible threat would be a veiled one sadly.

    I know.

    OTOH, for one-way SIN-SGN in C, I can transfer 17K Membership Rewards points into KrisFlyer for a C saver (which is available). Even buying the points outright would run $425 USD, and that flight in C costs $1241 SGD (economy's $441 SGD). Plus there's $100 SGD fees on the award. So, basically, I need to figure out whether I care about C for that flight or not.

    United's 17.5k + 22.10 but no SQ, so no non-stops, and there's some truly batman routings including SIN-HKG-BKK-SGN including ET (taking 27 hours). I might have actually gone for that long connect if the ET segment weren't in coach.

    The SQ blocking is temporary while they work to resolve IT issues to ensure that we over-entitled UA Elites do not usurp their SQ Suites/First inventory on premium routes.

    Aren't all SQ routes premium routes? Even super-long-haul like SIN-KUL. :)

    Are you just searching using the UA website or have you used other tools to check availability on individual segments?

    I think SQ's response may just be, "Go ahead."

    I've searched UA, AC, and SQ. I don't have ANA miles, so I can't use their site to search any more. :(
