Does anyone know how to book an airport that does not show up in the search engine? I am trying to book VS 197 (LHR-BGI-SVD) but SVD does not show up on the search engine.

Bumping/repeating this question to see if anyone has found any way to accomplish this a month later...

Definitely call. Cancelling award tickets by calling will have your miles returned instantly. If youre lucky with the agent, they might even proactively waive the fees.

Wasn't working for me recently, though I think I found a work around. Instead of choosing business class, choose La Premiere and the monthly view appears with mileage awards.

I got a survey request for my experience with the website. Boy did I let them have it on the survey lol.

I've booked an award with an early morning departure to connect in CDG.
Can I call and ask to be changed into the previous evening flight? Or shall I rather cancell and book it again? Thanks for your advice

You will have to cancel the ticket and book again.

New to flying blue so I'm not sure what award availability is like, but a couple weeks ago I found lots of China air flights, but now they're all gone. I noticed someone above also had difficulty. Was what I originally saw ghost inventory?

Partenaires are free to release or remove availability for Flying Blue (and other) rdemptions as they please.
​​​​​​

​​​​​TPAC prime tickets seem to be harder to get; plenty of Europe to Asia rdemptions to be had.
