Can you explain that? AB shows up as a choice but no availability on either Y or J when you just select AB.

I also just checked for a few dates saw availability fyi.

Reason is because you unchecked the other carriers and it's a mixed itinerary.

So what's the best way to get to GIB when flying from Israel to NYC
Only flights to GIB ate from UK and Morocco. Take IB to AGP and drive/bus/taxi down

If you def want to do GIB it doesn't look like PITA can be avoided.

You still dont get it...check dates next year. You can check any box you want.
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

What exactly is it that I don't get? You posted a screenshot asking why Air Berlin didn't show in that scenario, so I gave you the reason. That's all

If this is purely about finding availability, I have seen availability on AB post 2015.

I was referring to:


No AB availability showing on BA or AA recently. Seems like a glitch.

I'm not arguing about availability. I was simply pointing out that in the case of your screenshot AB wouldn't show up unless there was availability for your entire itinerary on AB.
