If you value something, you should financially support it so that it is viable and continues to exist. It's also not a huge expense in the relative scheme of things.

Agreed. The serial asker will not get responses from me.

I still say let this thread be the de facto and people will quickly notice the one-off requester vs. the serial requester.

Agreed, limit the requests to one thread to control requestors.

Could someone help me out? Trying to decide whether to book now or wait a day or 2 - can someone post fare bucket availability for AC 1532 Dec 22?

Thanks in advance!

Looks like oversold in Y and only 5 J seats to be sold.

Not sure I understand your point. Please elaborate.

"They wouldn't pay anyway" isn't a valid argument as to why something should be given to them for free.

Agreed. And it makes sense. I guess its because I don't like people exploiting companies' work to save a few bucks a month. Its not the way I roll.

A lot more people don't like companies exploiting people's hard earned money to make a few bucks more a month.

Huh???? Someone creates a needed and valuable service and asks to get paid for it? How is that exploiting people's money??

What would be the motivation to spend all of the time and money to create the site if not to be able to make a profit?

How do you see that Y is oversold?

I don't, hence my "Looks like..." statement.

In such cases where Y is flat out 0, it often means oversell especially if there are J slots open.

For example, 149 today was Y0J0 for the longest time, then recently AC opened up J/R to allow for upgrades.

Anyway, this is just based on my experience, so anyone can take it or leave it. :p

AC isn't willing to sell any more economy seats since Y, B, M, U, etc fares are all zero yet they're willing to sell another 5 business seats since J5. I'd read that situation the same as yyznomad -- looks like an oversell in Y.

@Canibus Just to clarify, why are you thinking about waiting a day or two to book? Are you even able to buy an economy ticket for that flight? Y0 suggests none are for sale...

Looking to buy an ACV package in business class (which books in C) - was trying to get a feel for how many tickets may actually be left... The answer? Not many! :-)
