Singapore Krisflyer Award Redemption
I have enough Krisflyer mileage to redeem one way First class Saver Award from JFK to SIN with stopover in FRA, and hope travel in Feb or Mar. As I looked for availability and found no Saver Award is available. I even looked at April and May, still nothing. Does Singapore airline make it all unavailable for now? Or something else?
I know booking with stopover can’t be done online, and need to call Singapore Airline. Should I call and tell them I want to be on the waitlist for certain date in Feb and then cross my finger it will be clear? Any other suggestion?
By the way, I have no status (new member) in Krisflyer program.

Today I learn something ‘strange’ about Sq Krisflyer award redemption.
I try to book one way FCO-SIN-PEN in J
When I searched online, it showed no availability for Saver award.
However if i do it separately, FCO-SIN and SIN-PEN (sector by sector) it shows availability for both.
So i called their Krisflyer call center. The agent understand my dilemma. When asked if she can book it through the phone for me, she said her side also shows no availability when book in one ticket. I asked her why when book sector by sector it has seat for award redemption but cannot book it when want to book in one ticket. She reasoned that maybe they have “limited quota for award redemption by region”.
I tried to search in Coach seat for FCO-SIN-PEN and it has availability and bookable.
Can someone explain or share their experiences with SQ Krisflyer regarding this?
