Hi
just wanting to clarify with the OP - are you saying youíve tested out those airlines listed and found award space showing on UA that is also showing as available on the airpoints partner online booking tool? Iím not clear on what point you are making here. Thanks

Ok thanks. I have found that not to be the case in the past, also still a rather laborious exercise searching awards on on airpoints without a full month calendar like other programs.

One thing I have found with the limited searches that I have been doing is that if there are direct flights available for the route selected then that is all it will show. However, if there is no availability on direct flights it will show connections. This was certainly the case on availability for SIN/AKL flights that I was looking at. It would be much better if showed both direct and connecting flights.

Just wanting to clarify with the OP who was able to see Star Alliance awards on UA and then go over to Air Nz and see them on the partner booking function. I just tried that for a couple of test runs. I could see awards on UA but they weren't showing up on Air NZ partner award booking.

If you see an Everyday J award on UA, are you able to see that same award when you search it up on Air NZ? I wasn't able to do this. ie I could see an Everyday Business class award on UA but on the Air NZ site it is only coming up with economy award availability for the same date.
