    I am trying to book one ticket one way from BOM-SFO for Jan 2013 and it shows 40 k miles on SQ
    and when i try to do that for 2 people it does not even show men SQ it shows me other airlines like united \thai\ air nippon but not SQ , will calling a agent and booking be a better option ?

    That probably means that SQ has only released 1 seat to UA for award ticketing. Unlikely that an agent will show anything different.

    FWIW, SQ is known sometimes (especially regionally) for only opening one seat at a time. With the 24-hour fee-free cancel rules I'd try to book one and then check for the second a bit later and see if it shows up. If not you're not really out much but a few minutes of time. If it does then you get the awards you were looking for.

    This happened to me earlier this year. BOM-SIN was showing just 1 seat in Business and I needed 2. Booked the first one, a little while later, the second one opened up. Perfecto!
