AS just told me they can book AF space from CDG-IST but not CDG-TLV
I remember when a coke was a nickel, and you could buy VRs in OD.

They said AF doesn't trade seats with them on all routes

Is there a software or program that can price every ticket (or does it pay for me to make one)i want to compare:
Within each class of service per flight
Price for paid ticket
Price for point ticket (and taxes)
Get ticket from amex travel with 30 percent return(platinum or centurion if true)
Availablilty by logging in as a gold and platinum member.
What is the best option as well as if we see same availability and or same amount of points.

bump as well as does it pay for a company to buy "delta private jet options" we NEVER fly on small planes but if we can get free upgrades etc does it pay?

EF is showing Aeroflot availability, but delta shows nothing. Is this a case of deltas terrible award search engine, and I'll have to call them to book ?

Any tips on how to get a AZ agent to pull up SU availability ? EF is showing 1 seat available for multiple flights, but the agents can't pull it up.
