I am trying to redeem a first class suits flight on Singapore Airlines for a Sydney to Fukuoka flight, but because the SIN - FUK flight has no first it just says nothing available and wants to make the whole booking in business (i have checked that the SYD-SIN leg does have suites available)

Any one know a way around this???

I'm guessing you're using Velocity points?

Joseph,

You want to waste all those points for an 8h flight? Really?

SQ 231 isn't a bad flight for Suites.

I personaly dont think 127500miles is to bad.

Its OK only if you get the saver rate the standerd and full are just ridculious!

You can't make a mixed-class award booking through the web site. Call the service centre instead.

You need to divide up your trip with two return tickets - one to Singapore and then another Fukuoka.  If you do the call centre you won't get the 15% reduction in points for booking online.  This is a common problem - not just with points tickets but paid ones as well.  A mixed Cathay J/F to the US is around $30K despite only be in J to HK.  A standard J class to the US costs around $11K - go figure...

Thanks Everyone for their help!

I will call them up and see how much it is to book a milti class over the phone if its not cheaper will just book 2 seperate flights.

I think 2 seperate bookins will also end up costing more in surchargers so another thing I have to look into.

So far it looks like 

SYD-SIN is 127 500miles (saver in 1st suits) 

SIN- FUK 68 000miles (saver in biz)

Total = 195 500

Vs

SYD-FUK 131 750 miles (saver biz all the way)
