Award availability in F

How far in advance ANA releases F award availability to *A partners ?

I'm looking to book for September but seeing nothing.

Thanks & regards,

Depends on the partner. When NH open for their own members, and when the partner opens for their members are two separate things. You would need to ask in the specific forum of the partner from where you want use miles.

Thank you, this helps.

You'd probably have to wait for releases close in. Or hope for cancellations that are released back to inventory.

The time to book that was March/April of this year. I see lots of ANA space far out and just recently booked F and J awards for next May/June so it's not blocked.

6 months too late to catch that train. March/April 2020 seats opened up and got booked in April/May 2019.

Is it fair to say then if I want to head to Japan on an ANA award ticket next November, the time to get it is pretty much now?

Yes, I just booked one for October 2020 There is definitely some month (/few week) -before availability as well, so if your plans are very flexible you could role the dice and wait.
