Again, that may be, but it would save him, and perhaps others, some time if you were simply forthright about it.

No deception was intended. The person asked about the differences between Premium and Basic and we answered the question for the benefit of anyone else that was wondering, regardless of the particular airline they wanted to search for.

Fair enough.

Then I guess we covered it between the both of us, huh?

I specifically asked about searching for CX, you couldve said "we dont cover CX awards"

I see on aa availability for two people on a certain flight from YUL to JFK, but when i try to do it through ba they show that only 1 reward seat is open, doesn't ba get all the saaver seats that u could get on aa?

That is very weird.

EF and BA both show 1 seat available on AA4444, but AA is returning 2 seats.

Maybe ask in the EF thread?

I was answering the question about Basic vs Premium, I didn't see the CX part of it at first glance. However that is why we publish all of the supported Award airlines on our website and give a 5-day free trial, so you don't have to ask these questions.

If you just want to search CX then open a CX account and check from JFK/ORD/YYZ/LAX/SFO/YVR-HKG using flex dates.

IME it's the same. YMMV.

I've seem a few times CX>BA, and there have been a few reports of BA>AA. Although I think its more of an error than intentional allocation

I find Qantas easier.

Their calendar view is great.

Very inaccurate. IIRC, they update it once a day.
