Is there a list to help understand what all the fare codes mean for certain airlines ?

When searching PG, EF is displaying Y and D class for economy in business class award. Well, PG says that their award classes for Y and J are X/Z, and tips?

How do you figure out what code for each airline means Saver/bookable by partners?

Regarding seat options?
Paid = available for money
Occupied = taken

Seriously? I did not know that. No point in paying for it right now then since the flights I'm looking at are searchable on AA.com.

The alerts are not slow, we email you at the same time that the system finds the availability during a check. As long as you respond to the alert within a reasonable time the seat should still be available.

How often does the system check?
Nonetheless, someone must have had an alert for the same flight as me because I checked within 10 minutes.
