i was just going to say the same thing. perhaps their system on a new route doesnt even try to allocate business awards until they have more data no matter how much space there is. I wonder if that has implications for buying upgradable coach fares on new routes too.
it's a shame tho as I have some miles burnin in my pocket and want to to europe on a 787 or a350
