@ExpertFlyer Voice I hav the Premium service, and I was wondering how you can see the amount of seats available (award) on the flights.
You can't for LY as they pulled the data from GDS.
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.

I checked EWR-LAS as well, and it doesn't list how may seats.
Am I supposed to click on some option??

Via the Award & Upgrade search tool.

Yes you still can, EF now gets LY award inventory from other sources.

Yes, you're scraping QF and therefore no longer display how many award seats are available, which is the question I was responding to.

You can determine the number by doing several searches at different Quantities to see where the Yes/No break happens. Don't give up so easily.  :)

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" .
Can u reply to this?

Do they show all availability of only what is shown on the QF website?

There's no value add in this service. Figuring out the seats, even if takes longer, would make me want to renew.

Other customers still enjoy our Flight Alerts service (which alerts to to when award inventory may become available that isn't currently available) as well as all the other airlines supported across Awards & Upgrades and the rest of the full suite of search/alerting features that ExpertFlyer has to offer. Thanks for your feedback.
