Recently, I got with AA an award seat that JAL, Qantas and BA did not show. I did not check cx.com so maybe was there.
What is the most reliable tool for searching CX space using AA miles?

None are perfect, though I find CX.com is closest and better than BA/QF.
Use em all and PUTPAC.

On most flights they get an error message, which the stupid reps claim as "no availability", and even where they can see it, they end up getting an error message when they try to book.

Is there a way to get more than 30 alerts? I know that I can pay .99 each but is there some kind of package. It would be good to have a pro plus package with more alerts.

There is no additional package. Most people don't use 30 alerts, so that's why we offer the ability to buy individual alerts for those that may need more.

As we have mentioned before:
- If you have a question about your alert, please email us at customercare@expertflyer.com so we know who you are and can actually look up the alert.
- The alert system checks several times a day at least, but not every second. If you happen to find inventory between alert checks, that's great, but it doesn't mean there are any issues.
- You may have created the alert incorrectly.
- The alerts look at the segment by itself, if your manual search includes multiple segments then married segment logic comes into play.
- Did you run a Quick Check? That will tell you if the system will see the inventory when the next scheduled check occurs.

ITA Matrix shows the following flight:



Indeed, EF also shows the flight:



However, when searching for "O" availability for that flight, TG920 doesn't even appear, let alone appear and say "no" availability.

It does, however, appear on 5/19.

Why?

Same thing for LH 797 on 5/18.

Shows up on ITA and in EF flight search, but can't find it to set an alert?
