Quoting jetblue777 (Thread starter): The fare code is QLJFK but I'm confused, it's usually just one letter like shown below:
and according to United, here are the fare codes for SQ that can accrue miles
Economy Y B E H K M S W L U - 100%
No Mileage Credit X I O G Q V N T - 0%
You are confusing fare basis and booking class. Fare basis can be any number of letters and are often a code in and of themselves. As an example, found a LHR/SIN fare with IT that had the fare basis TOWGB541, presumably meaning a T-class, One-Way fare from GB.
The first letter of the fare basis is the booking class, so in your case, it would mean that you wouldn't be eligible to earn any UA MP miles on that trip.
Looked on expertflyer and the next fare up seems to be the W class fare - for only 50 bucks, I'd go for it.
All my life, I've been kissing, your top lip 'cause your bottom one's missing

Hi, if you can't get the miles on a KrisFlyer account I highly doubt that you will receive the miles on MileagePlus, they unfortunately have a lot of restrictions. However, if you can "upgrade" to the next booking class for such a little amount, then it's really worth it...
