If you do get rain your entire time (or even most of it), you may as well go to Coney Island Beach.
At least in Bora Bora you'll have a place to sit, while Coney Island beach on the other hand
Life is as good as you make it...

I am in the early stages of planning a trip to BOB. Hoping to book LAX-PPT on TN using AA but it doesn't show any availability online. AA shows the flights as revenue flights but not award flights. I just pick a random date in October 2016.

Is this a matter of PUTPAC to book?

AA won't show TN award availability. Either PUTPAC or use EF.

Does the IC Thallasso wait to release their reward rooms until right before the travel date?

no. its just that within two weeks of travel people cancel their bookings to avoid a fee.
