    I am looking at redeeming 2 * 1 way J SYD-SIN-either FRA/ATH/CPH/AMS/FCO Saver award for September this year using KF points. And of course me being late to the party so far there are some routes available for waitlist only.

    Looking at ANA tool I noticed that I can get to some of the above destinations via BKK on TG J instead. But obviously I prefer to be on SQ than TG (better service and seats?!).

    I was wondering whether it is worth waitlisting on SQ J Saver award, and the success rate of SQ actually releasing seats closer to departure date? Or should I just give up and redeem TG J one-way Saver award on KF points directly?

    Finally, when redeeming on TG using KF miles, how much are the taxes/surcharges? When redeeming in SQ before they always charge an arm and a leg for it.

    YMMV, but my waitlists always cleared on SQ closer to departure dates, even after I lost my PPS status. Most of my redemptions has been on regionals Y and J savers.
