Current methods to check fare/booking class availability:
  • Expertflyer.com $99 / year
  • KVS Fees vary
  • Travel Agent friends
If you are requesting flight load / class availability, please provide the following:

1. Actual travel date (don't say tomorrow, or similar, as that is ambiguous given the global flyertalk membership)
2. Departure and arrival airport codes
3. Flight number

Thanks!

BA123 LHR-DOH 14 July

3 of us booked on this flight and, being suspicious of strike impact, took a look at it today. Plenty of seats showing on expertflyer(my access) but flight doesn’t seem to be on sale, or Friday 15, or a few days the previous week. Can someone check if it has been zeroed out and/or advise on the likely cause.

Thanks very much

I imagine with the current shortages in general (ignoring possible strike action) this is a route that may be canned due to the plentiful alternatives on QR

The flight is zeroed out :

Thank you very much, can't believe they opened up 2 x WTP in avios on that flight!! I thought it might be busy but wow, and this is 6 months out!!!
For the CW availability do you think they restrict full J so people don't buy one way out of MLE and it's all returns? J0 C9 seems odd!!!

It does look a little odd, although C is still a flexible CW fare class.
