Looking at TLV - NYC... in one of Dans posts he wrote the following:

-Air Canada charges 40K in coach or 82.5K in business class one-way. There are no fuel surcharges for United flights. Points transfer instantly (1:1 ratio) from AMEX. Transfers from Starwood (20K:25K ratio) can take 2-10 days.

How do i check availability with AC?
