    As SQ takes away F and C from most routes, I am trying to burn my KF miles before saver awards are gone. I just redeemed for JFK-FRA-SIN-BKK in F and C because It seems to be the only route with availability on a regular basis.

    Since it's before the switch to the A380, I'm on NRT-SIN SQ11 in F in about a week. Of course even with the 747 go find 2 F seats at a time......

    The last time I got 2 F seats I had to confirm one and waitlist for the second, it eventually cleared but I had to sweat it out for a while.

    We try to fly together but she does not mind separate flights or itineraries if it means seats in the front of the plane for both parties.

    I took that flight over this past summer. Not a bad flight, is the old plane though.

    <edit> Had access to ANA Suite Lounge in NRT, and the SQ First Lounge in SIN. Be sure to ask if your permitted to use the private room, I was, i'm not sure of what is required for that though.

    No Private Room or even SQ F lounge, the flight is a one-way award. I'll be leaving SIN via JetQuay though.

    NH F, TG F, SQ F... JetQuay... IC SIN, Westin Siray Bay, some suites, should make for a good trip report here on Milepoint!

    Back to the original post - I had no trouble booking saver awards (in C) for BKK-SIN-CHC and SIN-TPE recently.

    If I'm not mistaken none of those are the "new" products.

    You're right, not "new" in the sense of 380/77W C products, but both SIN-TPE (333) and SIN-CHC (772) had the "new" (post-Spacebed) "regional" product.
     
  13. Does anyone know whether you can redeem savers for F and C on the refurbished regional 77A's?

    I believe they list saver awards for the regional C on A330
     
  15. Yeah, but apart from a bigger screen, is it really that much better?

    Well, I find the seats to be better built than the old Spacebed seats, and of course there's the much more extensive KrisWorld AVOD. I certainly prefer these seats to the old Spacebeds!!

    SIN-FRA-JFK on SQ25/26 has been relatively easy for me in general to redeem F awards. Managed to get three F awards on the same flight recently. Though, 2 of the seats were only booked a week before the flight.
    It is easier to find availability on the JFK-FRA leg rather than the FRA-SIN leg in general

    SQ from Sydney seems OK for saver awards on the 777.200s when I have looked.

    I really like the new regional seats. I had them on a 333 redeye from SIN-ICN and they seemed to be softer and a good sleep for an angled lie-flat.

    Nothing wrong with the A330 from BNE either. I regularly use points on this flight for a J saver and really enjoy the "new regional" seats

    Last June/July we did the new regional A330 on redemption SIN-MLE-SIN. Managed to get two C seats there and back. Seemed to be quite open last year but very tight this year.

    For regional it was nice, very similar in comfort to AA's NGBC but with much nicer service. Still after a short 4 hour red eye we were not exactly feeling super fresh on arrival! (fortunately after one more flight from SIN we had 16 hours of CX F bliss to recover en route back to YYZ!)

    Leg room on the A330 seat 11A. I am close to 6' (180cm) and there was plenty of leg room.
