Swiss is showing the availability that M&M members have which is way more than United.

If you choose SWISS as the airline then please note what is posted at the top of the page:
"SWISS Award availability reflects availability for Miles & More members. Availability to members of partner airlines may be less. Select the "Star Alliance" airline to see partner availability."
For further help please email us.

How do you set up an alert for LX that is available to *A, when I put LX it gives me M&M availability and I can't put *A?

You can use the *A, but I agree with you: it stinks and is very confusing

*A is only to search, not for alerts. No?

It's for alerts for *A airlines other than LX. An alert for an LX flight will look at the M&M inventory (equivalent of selecting LX as the airline in the search).

I'm searching PHL-TLV, 6/10 on US, and the daily US nonstop flight is not showing up, only PHL-ATH-TLV. What gives?

I want to create an alert. Am I gonna have to key it in manually or something? Will that even work?

Add another fare class to the search (E.G. C, Y) and then the option to set an alert for all of the flights will come up

In case anybody is still not convinced that *A award availability on EF is scraped off united.com. Try searching LOT and see what they give you.

Lot is not showing on United.con for the last while, and so doesn't EF show them, while ANA, Miles & More, Aeroplan do show them.
