Business Class Award Fare Class?

Hi

Im very confused....

I just joined Expertflyer to find a seat from YYZ-DEL on the AC direct on AE in J.

Im looking at DEL-YYZ on Feb 24th?

Expert flyer shows me P6 R4 but the Aeroplan site doesn't show availibity.

In addition - when I phone AE they give me a whole diff story!

What fare class should I be looking for on Expert Flyer for Air Canada J redemption? I thought is was R...

thanks

R is for upgrades and IKK.

Rewards are in I.

R if you are using priority rewards as an SE. I if you are doing otherwise. (If memory serves me right)

As Stranger and Sean have mentioned, AE business rewards fare bucket is I while economy is X.

In ExpertFlyer, you have to use the "Rewards and Upgrade" tool, select AC as the airline and check the box "Business - Award & Alliance Partner Upgrades (I)" to identify AE J availability on a specific route.

Best of luck.
