Given its a stand by ticket to Europe, surely you will want a port with the largest capacity to the ME3 hub. I suspect that might be SIN. I find CX or SQ the most easy going about changes to return leg as long as inventory is available.

Flexible flights are generally not cheap, and often you still need to pay fare difference (which can be significant last minute)...

I would consider a couple of LCC fares a few days apart as a fall back (AirAsia, Scoot etc)

If you have frequent flyer points, you could buy 2 one ways on points, then cancel the return if you dont get on the flight you need.
