When it says lowest fare.

Im pretty sure thats a -1
Lowest fair just means the lowest price for the search dates you put...

Eitherway, im not getting expertflyer to show any availability for anything with delta. If you can find one...let me know

DL looks to be back up. Should be helpful to find the partner seats for the JFK-TLV flights now

Looks like Experflyer can only show availability for partner routes that are shown on Virgin Atlantic. So for example JFK-TLV would not work on Experflyer.

Just looking for a clearer definition. This availability is:
1) only bookable by elites
2) costs the flex rate, which can be much higher than classic/saver

Is that correct?

Correct
I thought this "elite space / special rates" was killed when the AF program changed on 6/1.

@ExpertFlyer Voice
Can you add an option for search results with 7 days and calendar views?

Is anything changing due to TPG?

I got that already.
Can you add an arrow or a "next seven days" option at the results page instead of having to "refine search" .

@ExpertFlyer Voice I hav the Premium service, and I was wondering how you can see the amount of seats available (award) on the flights.
