Award inventory when partnered with Partner Airlines

I was confused with AS inventory when booking with partners. If I look at award space (on EF and on AS), if shows N or Z class but no W space on a domestic AS flight (say, SEA-LAX). I know that W (or A) is normally what's needed for combining with a partner booking. That said, when I look at a route with a partner (say, DXB-LAX via SEA), that route will now show as available for one award the whole way through. It only shows it for the flights available in N class (and obviously those in W), but not Z class, and only on some routes.

Has anyone else experienced this? What's the ruling on this? Does AS allow N space for some partners and not others?

This is new.

I'm not sure if it's intentional or not.

AS did say they'd look at adding more fare classes for partner awards at one point.

Are the flights in w and n the same # of miles?
