Delta award space not showing on FB website?

I'm looking to use AirFrance miles to book a one-way domestic flight on Delta.

Delta.com shows low-level availability (25k) for this flight:

Jul 10th
DL2616 JFK-SAN

Yet Airfrance.us returns this error:
No flight is available. Please, modify your travel dates or class of travel.

When I try the search on Airfrance.fr I can see the expected result, however, it doesn't show any results for July 9th, when 3 separate directs are available at the low-level on Delta.com!

Anyone else running into similar problems here?

Availability for Skymiles members can be different than for FB members and vice-versa. I think that's just what you're seeing here.

Yes and especially if you're logged into a DL FF account with status, remember that elites have enhanced low award availability for domestic coach award tickets.

only for Elites. DL does AFAIK not discriminate against airline partners like KLAF routinely do.

Hey neighbor, for LOW awards, I don't believe that to be the case. But please correct me - I hope you are right.

Availability seems to match now. Must have been a temporary bug in the FB website. Thanks for the help all!
