I think it is perfectly fine to exclude dates when you allow bookings on a long period, but to exclude 2 weeks out of 8 becomes quite annoying. If they said 5/4 to 31/5 and 1/9 to 15/12 except xxxxx I would have no problem with that but here it feels like they are really cherry picking what they want you to buy which makes it closer to a 'traditional' promotion than the AZ coupons tradition. For me, only Y is also a really big issue as I'm not really interested in Y beyond Europe on AZ.
