The numbers are not additive, it is the same seat.

Would it be possible to indicate which searches are alliance and which are airline searches. There is only 1 option for LX, and it's not clear if it's MM avail or *a. In addion is SQ/LH etc, *a avail or own avail (I know the answer, but it should be indicated)

Maybe a star next to the name or something

neither LH LX and SQ have own availability, always *A availability = United.com.

At the top of the Award & Upgrade results page for LH and LX it clearly notes which it is (partner availability for LH and M&M availability for LX). You can also see LX partner inventory by selecting "Star Alliance" as the airline.

Emirates recently changed the Business Flex award from I to O class, the Business Saver Award is still D class, make sure you are using the correct one in your search.  We have updated ExpertFlyer to reflect the change.  In the future if you find a change before we do, please send us an email.

Are you sure about this?
3 reps I spoke to today said it's changed to C. While other 2 are saying to O.
Any clarification?

It's O class. C is a full fare business class

Expert Flyer is showing a bunch of availability on First flex which is not coming up online. When I call up Emirates they say they eliminated completely the A class which is First Flex. now it's only Z.
Would be extremely disappointing if true. can anyone confirm this?
