Especially on such a 'prime' route. The conventional wisdom is that they only release C inventory on the 777-200ER and A330, which have an inferior product. I notice this flight is on the A350.

I just noticed that something must have changed about the award flight search.
As I'm living in NYC, I've been checking flights to and from NYC (all airports) for some time now.
It used to be possible to just put in NYC and get results for JFK, EWR, and LGA.
Unfortunately, this doesn't seem to be possible any more.
However, LON still works which is odd.

This flight is scheduled as ULR version, thx for the 'mistake' award from SQ.

Likely a YHZ glitch on A3 website. Call M&B to check if you can book over the phone.

Yes it is common for domestic Canada flight. You have to call A3 to book these flight and pay the booking fee.

Did you ask them to waive the phone booking fee? In the very end it is their website that for some unspecified reason (glitch, omission, etc, doesn't matter) doesn't offer an option that should be available, right? If there is no way to avoid a fee when buying a product it should then be a part of the price. It's like some OTAs that appear to be charging the lowest price for a ticket but no matter what payment method one chooses there is always an extra fee...
