I have been trying to book multiple flights with SQ
(Business and First) for 2018 for weeks now using SQ217 (Sin-
Melb) which shows as a A380.Â It also shows as a A380 on expertflyer etc
and Expertflyer etc show all seats as not being allocated.
Not all seats are available (none in first) and have been
limited by the airline in business, not for a day or a week but for months on
SQ Melbourne have simply been told that they are blocked
out, thinking it was for an future equipment change the PPS staff checked and
was informed by Singapore no equipment changes were planned.
SO, SQ have blocked out sections for months and months with
no available reasons on both SQ218/217.
Just seeing if anybody has heard anything about what SQ is
planning on doing with its Melbourne flights?

I haven't been on SQ218 but have travelled at least three times on SQ217 and it's always been well patronised.

Similar deal with all 4 daily flights ~11 mths out from SIN to BNE. All business and economy is on waitlist only (premium economy is available though), no exceptions, immediately upon being listed. Flights the other direction, BNE to SIN, don't seem to have the same affliction. Â SIN to SYD are fine.

I suggest calling the call center. When I realized my SQ217 on March 2018 was no longer on A380, I thought it's too late for me to change to the earlier SQ207 which is on the A350. But when I called up, the lady was able to change it for me without any hassle. I'm not sure if it's because of some special leeway given due to their change to the aircraft and/or my expression of disappointment, without much whingeing.

Hi, I cant speak to those flight numbers, but i just booked SQ 228 (MEL-SIN) and SQ 237 (SIN-MEL) on redemption in F for flights in June 2018. No wait list, and seating was 1C 1D, both ways
