That makes a lot of sense, though why does it sometimes show a 0 instead of a blank space?

Because not every award/upgrade class is returned for all segments. AF in particular won't return an award class code for a segment if it's zero.

This is what I'm talking about.
Why does one result show up with a 0, while the other shows blank space?

I think he's asking if it's the same airline, it should have the same award/upgrade class, so then why some show 0 and some not, CMIIAW.

Because the airline doesn't always assign every class class code for every flight.

EF pulls from GDS, so why not look it up on your GDS and see what he means

Not showing up in my GDS even when the fare class is available.

Their partnership with UA is relatively new.
Bookable via PUTPAC only.
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.

Referring to them being listed on EF. Is that a new addition?

No PUTPAC needed anymore for most awards. (Notable exception in FFN) they can be booked online.

When searching for LY Economy award from TLV - ZRH it shows availability even when checking to exclude code share.

However when i called AA to book they said the flight was operated by LX so can't book

How do i exclude those flights when searching?
