Chap and Hershel, look, this does not work 1+1 = 2. AA does not know exactly when the devaluation is coming but they know that it is coming, they don't necessary have to wait until the deval is on to send a message to inventory management that they can start release more award seats, it is the policy that is slowly changing. Not everything has to happen in one day. And sometimes we get lucky because of that.

@smart, I tried explaining it the best I can ;) you do the rest.

Since AA started flying the new 77w premium availability was non existent, suddenly the gates opened? Without any repercussions?

How is ZRH-TLV?
That's usually always available. NYC-ZRH / ZRH-NYC is the "rare one".

6/9 EZE-MIA AA. On an old 777 but allowing seats to be selected in F cabin as well-probably anticipating that they will have it switched to a new 777 by then. Regardless that route is hard to find availability for.
