Whats peoples experience been with getting granted Singapore Airlines waitlisted award flights?

Was advised by an expert in SQ matters last year that you really shud phone to ask what is happening with the waitlist on a regular basis, partic as your flights are 2 months fwd. Apparently this is important for both upgrades and straight awards.
You can always test how many F seats remain by making a dummy booking.. and, thanks to coronavirus expect there will be puh-lenty of cancelations everywhere the next few weeks..

Spoke to someone at SIA just yesterday about this exact issue. Their advice was, "Just keep calling regularly". So I don't know whether thats what is actually required to get them released, but that's what I'll be doing.

Have to agree with the previous posters. Just keep calling. I have never had a waitlist declined. Often call twice a week and ask about the progress of the waitlist.
I've called but it is an automated system that asks if I wish to remain waitlisted. Does this sound right?
I'll keep doing that regularly if that's the case.
In your experience, is it usually right on the 2 week mark that you get approved?
