As mentioned in another thread, apparently not all partners are created equal. AS shows a subset of what AA shows.

I held an F award on AA that did not show up on AS. There are other dates in December where your can see F awards for LAX-MEL on the AA website, with nothing showing on AS.

Note some QF routes/flights USA Australia do not have first class.
"Harder" try rare as hen's teeth. I've been horribly disappointed in using miles on any Alaska partners. Hence why I have 700,000 miles, I car rarely use them for any travel other than domestic US on Alaska metal.

I find premium-class availability to Asia is extremely good. Almost everything else is more difficult or lower quality.

So, Betteridge's law of headlines applies here?

Any headline that ends in a question mark can be answered by the word no.

I don't, at least not on the long legs, TONS, and TONS, and TONS for multicabin awards with first class from SEA to SFO for the full award price, now that's a deal.

Yes, I was able to usually find mixed cabin awards. Looked like SEA/LAX in F then LAX/SYD premium economy/or coach. For First Class Miles.
