that's not what it seems like. They pulled back because if pressure. But they still support bds.
 And using miles isn't free. It's a paid ticket.
What if they rejected bds but caved due to pressure? Would that be better?

Anyone? I'm in the same boat.
You can borrow MR points from Amex, the most points you can borrow if I remember correctly is 80000 on the Platinum, I did this last year.

Looks like you're new here. Biz class on the short run is economy class, same seat. Waste of miles.

A friend of mine booked TLV-JFK on SN thru etihad and the miles are still in acc. (Booking was done almost a week ago) did he luck out? Or etihad waits till date of travel?

Yes.
similar IT glitches happen with other airlines.
Sometimes in those cases after awhile they deduct the miles.
Sometimes they never do.

I would use the miles to book another ticket soon, and test my luck.

In how long is the first flight?

Is there a chance of finding 3 seats on this route now?

Has anyone found a way to somewhat check availability before calling?

I don't think there really is a way to do that.
I've had them give me different availability then what I've seen on UA, EF, AC for better, and for worse.
Life is as good as you make it...
