I'm looking to make an award booking or two later this year for myself and my partner, but as there is practically zero availability departing from within Australia it looks like I'll need to book a positioning flight if I want to travel in J or F. Like this website says, its best to be flexible with your arrangements! I'm seeking some advice from others regarding how much time they leave between long haul international flights (award or otherwise) on seperate tickets and airlines. Having been massively caught out in the past due to weather I'm now pretty cautious, but I also don't want to waste too much time in transit either.
I've primarily looking at Singapore airport at the moment but thought I'd see if there was a general consensus on whats best across the Asian hubs, eg hours, half a day, a day/night between flights.
