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.
Thanks again .

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.
