VAs 'The Business' is really good. Singapore's fully-flat business is really good (but check the plane, some routes are 777-200s and are old and not so good). Not sure I'd choose a 747... but up to you.With 2 (or 3, if you like 747s) equally good options, I'd take the direct and slightly cheaper one.

Singapore if you're not flying out of Melbourne. Enjoy a nice layover in the butterfly garden and the pool. Quality well above what I've heard reported for QF, and from what I've read as being pretty close to On Par with VA, which I read David's review on a while ago.

Have you checked the aircraft types and seats? SQ J seating out of Perth is generally inferior to your other options. Also, VA runs some 737s to Melbourne, not good for an overnight.

FWIW if I were you and I wasn't a regular flyer, just get the cheapest fare that meets your needs and available times. Searching for the best deals with too many variables can be a little futile sometimes. Enjoy your trip.

I will choose Singapore Airlines, because it earns the most status credits with the stop in Singapore, also their A350 and A380 products are better than VA's "The Business", so I think that'd be more comfortable in that way.
