I had the same issue on MLE DXB MLE, AC was only showing 2, but miraculously it showed 5 a few days later

Wow thanks for that hot tip!  The flight is still a ways off, so I guess I'll wait a bit.  I hadn't ever seen any availability for 5 when spot checking dates, so I figured it was capped at 3.  But I'll keep tabs.

This is the 30% off VS price. The transfer from Citi was 30% less. I already had some VS so my TYP transfer does not accurately reflect what the price would be. It should be 18k TYP.

JFK-IST-NBO TK J, 175k TK + $467

Quite likely the worst redemption value I've ever gotten, but sometimes you just don't have any better options.
How far out is the flight?
Can you Waitlist for low level availability for same flights?

Could have been slightly nicer if I wanted to burn some TYP. 20% nicer. For an MR transfer its perfect.
