Title: Rare Award Space Master Thread (No discussion, alerts only!)
Post by: Dan on November 04, 2014, 07:48:32 AM
Some routes are harder than others.

-Anything to Tel Aviv nonstop from the US in saver business.
-Anything to Hawaii in lie-flat seats in saver business
-Lufthansa First class more than 2 weeks out.
Etc.

Post what you come across in this thread!

United's "p.s." BusinessFirst service, JFK-LAX, is extremely difficult to come by. At least 2 seats are available on:

Nov. 13, 15, 17, 19
Jan. 19
Sep. 6

...and that's it for the rest of the year. :o

LAX-JFK is even worse: there are 2 seats (or more) available only on Nov. 18 - and that's all.

Wide-open to HNL in either direction, 3+ seats all summer long.

So I call SQ to book, and the rep tells me there's nothing at all open. This is what it looks like now:

Free OW? Was that the end of a trip? I thought only UA miles get you some sort of stopover/OW that can be booked later on down the road.

Not a single open F seat on SQ25 or SQ26 in all of 2015. :(

What are my chances with a waitlisting a weekday in the low season? Travelling solo, flexible scheduling maybe waitlist 3 days in a row.

ETA: Of course, the second I post this a few are showing up this month on SQ25  1/7 1/8 1/13 1/24. But how could I plan a trip on such short notice?

It's weird, I started searching last night and none of those were there, now they are. If you can make it work then go ahead! 57,375 UR or MR- but of course you already knew that.

I'll already be on a big award redemption then- but one I booked 10 months ago :)    Problem for me is I need at few months lead time to accommodate work and family considerations, and it's tough to mix airlines with late inventory drops (LH, SQ) with those that open some when the schedule opens (many others)

Can't seem to find a way to book online. Let alone an award booking.

But I agree Air Koryo would have more of a special experience.

AA has some amazing TATL availability right now in premium cabins starting from about September time.
MAD, FCO, LON, ZRH... have multiple dates with multiple seats open in business and first. You can even find space on the new 77W's and 767's.
There are even some scattered dates in the summer.
No TLV though.

Nice!

Saw yesterday on AA/BA availability on IB/AA in premium cabins. Aug 25/26 to be exact. But didn't think that its really open all along.. I think it was the first time I ever saw availability on AA LHR-JFK in J/F.

I'm booked in F and J in Mar, Apr, June, Aug and October.
It's interesting that they started to release those premium seats finally.
But I suspect that a devaluation is coming soon, otherwise they wouldn't have released.

I don't see the link,  if it had to do with the devaluation, why wouldn't they only released the space after the devaluation

I dont disagree that a devaluation will probably come once the us air & aa miles are in 1 program but I dont see the shaychis to them releasing the seats

Chap and Hershel, look, this does not work 1+1 = 2. AA does not know exactly when the devaluation is coming but they know that it is coming, they don't necessary have to wait until the deval is on to send a message to inventory management that they can start release more award seats, it is the policy that is slowly changing. Not everything has to happen in one day. And sometimes we get lucky because of that.

@smart, I tried explaining it the best I can ;) you do the rest.

I need to get from JNB to USA (pref NYC). Do I have any other option with the 250,000 points I would use for the Alaska if it's CX isn't available?
You could do BA J for 70k each. But heavy YQ. You could do Emirates J for 77.5k each. (slightly above your mileage budget).

If currently booked in CX J JFK-HKG, but JL F is available from JFK-NRT-HKG on same date, is it worth (giving up current J seat and) switching? Obviously prefer nonstop CX, but how likely is CX F to open up close in (or for that matter even J if I want to switch back)?
It looks like new skysuite F product.

Check flight availability in ExpertFlyer

If it's F4 or so,  good chance it can still open close in F1 or less, definitely better bet to switch to JAL.

Then it's as likely as any flight to open closer in, unless you're flying for a major event like Canton Fair.

Why not take the sure thing and continue to monitor for the direct flight though?

How about we try to keep the thread for flight availability posts, and if occasionally a post is for less rare space we don't comment on it unless there are repeat offenses to a degree that necessitates a response.

This thread serves the community best by being about flights only, and if someone takes advantage of it, a thank you. Let's try to keep discussion on the merits of other posts out of it (including my posts today!)

I vote for flyingace. Of course LY Y is not rear most of the times, but for summer travel when revenue tickets are expensive it is a good deal to get rid of useless matmid points.

Obviously everyone has different criteria for "good deals". I think this makes the grade, some people don't. If the consensus is not to post coach seats, so be it.

By posting in this thread, you're implying that you see 5 seats on JFK-YVR every day from 7/29 through 8/5. There are more appropriate threads for this discussion. Have you checked 1 day in advance? That usually does the trick.

Ok. Now I'm confused.
Both itins are a UA long haul + Partner short haul, no mixed cabin.
Why is pic #1 pricing at 57.5k as supposed to the 70k partner rate the same way pic #2 is pricing at 80k which is the partner rate as supposed to the 70k UA rate?

Definitely strange. The first pic is how it's been. The second pic is new though. Until now that would always price out at the United rate. It looks like between TLV and NYC they're pricing out all of the J awards with both a United and non United flight, at the higher rate now. What's strange though is the inconsistency. Why they're doing it for TLV - US awards, but not Europe - US awards.

Answer: In pic #2 since the partner leg isn't just an add on, rather taking you from one region to another, it will price as a partner award.

I am saying that a travel agent was holding 9 seats in business class because MAYBE someone will call him for a ticket and since he will be the only one with seats available he will be able to sell the seats for sky rocking prices. At the end since nothing happened and its close to the flight UA automatically took the seats back and since they saw so many unsold seats they decided to open up some for saver award.

I don't know about that.
I don't think a regular agent would tie up 9 J seats just by reserving them.
First off, the airline would be furious at him if they caught on and could cut ties with him. Second, he would have to cancel and remake the reservation every day or two.

It makes more sense that someone actually bought the 9 seats at a refundable fare and then canceled them when he couldn't sell them.

With UA you can hold seats in J for weeks if you do it early enough. It will hold until a couple of days before the flight.

Yeah right. And that's why the seat came in at 12 AM..

Ignoring that last comment, these seats are held as revenue or award?
If it's revenue, what do you/we care? UA should care but not us. Unless you tayna that because of his hold, there is less chance I seats will be released. But, I think this ta just proved the opposite, because 9 seats opened up, an anomaly for any flight of this route

It's BS.
Vast majority of those dates JFK-CDG are OpenSkies.
He should have search AA only.

There is a significant amount of AA availability, though. I booked Dec 23 a few days ago and noticed that.

Q: Do I do NS in the 767 or connect in MIA for the 777?

Fair enough. Figured that besides for August and some dates in September there was nothing before at all.  Especially not with 3-5 seats which I figured was great. At least the F seat is a gem from what I have been looking at.

So would a wiki make sense with some guidelines? If I look at a schedule that is 355 days long X3 and find 18 total seats available I figured that was rare. If its not then I apologize but could do well with some guidelines as to what is worth posting being that many have alerts set to this thread and don't want their time wasted.

If you want JL then you should be searching to NRT and piecing it together afterward.
ORD-NRT is probably better than LAX also.

Is SQ R really only rare for 2+?

Even for 1 pax it never seems easy to see an "available"  flight but merely wait-listed seats.

On that note:

10/20, JFK-FRA, SQ R, A 380, 1 pax
10/21, JFK-FRA, SQ R, A 380, 1 pax
10/29, JFK-FRA, SQ R, A 380, 1 pax

If I really shouldn't post open SQ R space for 1 pax, I won't going fwd.

That was always tough. But just the amount of F space open this far out is great for anyone looking to fly with more than one companion. Plus, potential to go on from AUH in A380.

Not sure if this was ever mentioned, but TK has wide open availability in J for almost every day till the end of the schedule from IAH-IST, many dates from LAX-IST and ORD-IST. Many dates had lots of seats, up to 8 seats in J! For  Midwest and West Coast people it might be a consideration.
They are usually quite stingy with premium award space... so this seems like a good development.
Seems like JFK is out in the cold for this one.

@Dan, I think it is about time to make a strict rule. This thread is ONLY for rare award availability alerts. Like
Lucky is posting that EY has plenty of F seats (6+) open many dates in the summer from different US cities.
IST-TLV has been dry for a couple months, it looks like its open again now.
ANYTHING other than that should be posted in its respective thread.

Personally, lately I look on this thread once a day like I look on some other threads, I know that the fact that it popped up means nothing. And in response... I missed out on the QF alert etc.

Post by: leaf on October 22, 2015, 10:55:54 PM

Depends where you want to go and what you prefer.  If you are trying to get to TLV,  the cheapest mileage option is SQ at 57.5k.  However, you will pay YQ, which is usually not terribly high on TK.  If you want to avoid YQ, United miles are 80k to TLV with no YQ.  If you are going to IST, SQ is 57.5k (plus YQ) and United is 70k (no YQ).
Really this should be on another thread.  Sorry.

Just FYI, starting in 3 days,  BA is rotating adding 777-200 and 787-800 into their TLV rosters, meaning MUCH MORE J AWARD SPACE BETWEEN TLV AND LHR. YQ and taxes are minimal Ex-TLV and not too bad if flying TLV-LHR on Ba, and then LHR-USA on AA.

I wasn't saying it's cheap. Just that the YQ isn't 1k, which I think you agree with. obviously it's significantly more than it would be without any yq.

Looks like routing rules allowed connection in lax for super cheap f flight even though it shouldn't have. Has since been fixed.

Even when trying to book an RT ticket through two different accounts, appears that there is only 1 F seat available per flight.  Incognito did not help.  Am guessing this is consistent with everyone else's experience.  Any way to circumvent?

Trying to book CX F for post d-day (03/22). I'm not finding F or even J at this point. I'm booking for end of March so I'm assuming I'll find J before d-day. If I find F post devaluation will I be charged the 12.5k extra or 40k? Fat chance on the 12.5k, right? Maybe??
Any way to somehow get on an upgrade list and pay the miles pre deval?

But letís get to the point. Emirates flights from DFW (Dallas) usually have pretty good availability to DXB (Dubai) and flights from JFK (New York) are usually okay as well. But, at the moment they have GREAT availability!!
From July through October there are 4 seats on most days between DFW (Dallas) and DXB (Dubai)!!
The calendar searches below are for 4 seats and each day that shows 90K miles has 4 seats on an Emirates flight available!

Oh my gosh.
Not sure I really did it, but I think I just put two tickets on hold for me and my wife to fly in July:
BOM-AUH-JFK.

I have a 6-letter AA record locator and the 6-letter EY record locator. 

Now, I guess the question is how to get to BOM (and what to do there or on the way there!)

BTW, I held this reservation with the US AA number.

No. It would be a complaint to sky team

IINM any direct US-TLV route with saver award business space is rare.
SFO-TLV Feb 6,7,13,14 2017.

If I understand Expert Mode correctly, there are 7 (I7) available with Saver Miles. (On 2/14/17, I didn't look at expert mode on the other dates).

Hawaiian Airlines HNL - JFK, 2 Business Saver seats on April 4, 2017. This is on their A330 with the new, fully-flat business class seats. 40K each way.

I've searched everyday in both directions - thats over 550 flights - and that's the only day with Saver space. Expert flyer should show them as the 'D' class.

Anything available for similar seats in the next year? I have some Hawaiian miles i want to burn

Check if Delta has the flight available at the Saver mileage rate (although you need to either know or guess what that is since they don't publish charts) then call VS to book.

HT to Lucky on the new QF flight from SFO to MEL:

Quote
Whatís most exciting about this flight now being bookable is that award availability is wide open in business class. Qantas is ordinarily very stingy with business class award availability, and Iím seeing 2-6 business class award seats on many flights.

Seeing many dates in November, December, and Jan for JFK-TLV and TLV-JFK on DL Y for 40K points. most of them i.e. 11/24, 1/10 and many others look to be saver award bookable on Air France for 29k or Virgin for also 40k (but 30% off with transfer promo).

Even though its only Y, may be useful for some...28k Virign points to Israel on Delta seems to me like a bargain

Update: Looks like these awards extend all the way throughout the end up the year (around passover too)

Is there a better time to buy my mileage ticket now or should I be holding out for any possible mileage fare sales? Thank you! :)

This. Because the Economy leg would make it 42.5k and business on UA would be 75k. But if there is a partner J on the route that would be 85k

I flew to Europe for 60k and was J for second/partner flight as well, I'm guessing they charge partner rates only if you're flying to another region?

I paid 85k but was entirely LH flying through MUN.

Great for upgrades with cheap J fares, starting at $2,500 RT to LHR. Plenty cheaper to other destinations connecting in LHR.
