U class not bookable with Avios?

Hello!
I'm wanting to book EI521 CDG-DUB on 6th August. Expert flyer shows U class is available which I thought was an Avios redemption fare class but Executive Club say there is no redemption availability.
Has anyone any ideas? I have tried ba.com and the avios website too...

Expertflyer is of no use for Avios-based awards.

If theres no availability on the Avios site then, unless Im very much mistaken, that means theres no availability via Avios. In other words whatever award seats were available that day are gone.

No; when it comes to spending Avios, there is no better alternative than consulting the actual group that uses/issues/redeems Avios
