Haven't seen anything on DDF about the issues booking EY F with AA miles. Has anyone been able to successfully book AA flight ex-AUH to NA in the past two weeks in J or F? Is there any workaround to Fiji/AUS agents no longer being able to book available space?

Yeah, it's strange to me that an entire award redemption avenue (and arguably the best use of AA miles) may have been removed and no one is paying it much attention. It's a bummer for me as I was planning on booking EY F home from MLE for next year  :'(

I was able to put AUH-SIN on hold in F a few days ago although that's not an A380.

i'm pretty sure this isnt the right thread but couldnt seem to find elsewhere... was wondering if there is a link that shows which currencies i can use to book etihad? i know aa and ana but i've also seen many posts that they partner with many airlines. i called AS and they said they didnt see the flight so i am assuming they dont. are there any better options for a short haul from NGO-PEK? AA is 20k in coach. short flight and need 5 tix so dont really need premium. but if i can use other currency, it might work better for me.
TIA

Is this still a known issue?
Thinking about shifting CC strategies to earn AA miles for redemption on EY F JFK-AUH.

You can book it on one PNR. But it will be priced as two tickets.

Call, if they can't see the space then try a different country's call center.
