Not sure I could see a daily direct service replaced with a service via SIN would almost double the flight time. Even MK would be a better alternate.
Air NZ is interesting, doesn't connect passengers through Perth on SAA?
Agree about SIN, plus another thing to add in is during peak season its not uncommon to see daily numbers of around 250-300, off peak its around 200, so if it were redirected via SIN, SQ would have to add another daily service to accommodate it
