So it seems unlikely SN is blocking the awards.
Expertflyer is no good searching for SN award inventory (available to FFP partners) you have to use UA or ANAs website. Then ask the ethiad agent to do a longsell query in their system and it will return availability. Direct sell availability queries will not work.
