From this thread I understand that O is business award and X is economy award, la AF.

I'm trying to look at availability between SVO and VVO (Vladivostok) and can't find O anytime. Using KVS, I've checked about 50 dates in Dec 06 and Jun-Jul 07.
The SU award booking classes in the KVS Tool thread are still current:

Looking, for example, at 01 Dec, you can see award availability:

[KVS Availability Tool 2.5.3/Platinum - Sabre: ITN/US-AXC1]
SVO  Moscow Sheremetyevo RU [UUEE]
VVO  Vladivostok RU [UHWW]
FRI  01 Dec 2006

Carrier   Flight From Depart    To   Arrive    A/C  St   Availability
--------- ------ ---- --------- ---- --------- ---- ---- -----------------------------------------
SU        719    SVO  19:10     VVO  10:50 +1  763  0    J7 C7 D7 O6 Z0 Y7 S7 B7 M7 H7 K7 X7 V7 T7
However, SU does not always 'publish' award availability through the GDS (even for their own members!). The only way to know for sure, is to have the agent create the booking (even if the flight is showing O0/X0), and 'queue' it to SU. Within ~72 hours SU will manually review availability and give their final answer.
