I've noticed it off and on for at least the past month... sometimes longer with specific routes.

And there was a report on here from someone that said they thought some of the direct routes were being zero'd out, but that connections could be booked. E.g DFW-LHR = J0, W0 but LAX-DFW-LHR doesn't.

It's all very strange, and like AANYC1981 said, it's hard to book AA for INTL J or W... when there's no J or W for sale.
