Trying to book EK and they don't see any flights available, even its available on EK website...

Do they still partner with EK?
They have issues seeing partner space. Trying giving them the booking code.

Z,D,X,N  for first, biz, and econ respectively.
Many times, EK doesn't recognize availability with connections even if both segments are available.
Maybe that's the issue.

Anyone have success booking a sky team award with KE segments during  peak.

Spoke to every rep/sup in LA and got no where, they insisted it needs to be low in order to book with partners.

It seems from Lucky not like that.

Quote
There’s no “peak season” award chart for travel on partner airlines, so you pay the off-peak price assuming you can find flights with award space (however, if you include a Korean Air segment during their peak pricing season, then the higher peak season pricing would apply)
Mashma that you could book it on one itinerary.

Doesn't conclusively mean he booked it, just that if it were possible it'd cost the peak rate.

Not saying he booked it, but seems he's saying that if you are booking a partner award and you add a KE peak segment you'll pay peak price (but you would be able to book it).

KE was saying you can't include a peak segment on a partner booking.

What am I missing?

I'm just saying that I don't think even he knows whether it's possible, just that he's saying if it is, you'd pay peak.

If you heard that you may want to ask for a refund.

But I doubt it.
