Confirmed via Twitter that it's a new official rule, but was told it only applies to JAL & Cathay, not Hainan.

Practically speaking, this is a devaluation of AS miles for a lot of folks :/

Update: Due to high fraud they have made this restriction and it applies to:

CX, JAL, and Hainan
What does fraud have to do with close in availability ?

Will DL book over the phone?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.
