ExpertFlyer now showing CX Award Availability?

Just noticed this on ExpertFlyer while looking up some flights. I guess they are starting to show CX Award availability?

Shows Z1 for F award
U for J award but no number after it
P is new? Business priority award maybe?
T9 for PEY award
X9 for Y award

Saw that too- did the Z1 correlate to award availability on Asiamiles/other programs?

the ones that I saw had Z0 (vs no number after the U)..

I confirm that the availability is now also available on Sabre, but not on Amadeus. Z, U, T, X are the award classes, although T is also used for ID75 (Industrial Discount, 75% off). P is also for ID75.

I just saw that today and didn't have the chance to crosscheck on AsiaMiles website yet.

I hope this is correct. It will beat the heck out of checking with BA or Jl.

May I ask how you accessed that inventory? In Awards & Upgrades, CX isn't an option in the drop-down menu of all the airlines from which one can choose.

One can go into a Flight Availability search and specifically look for Z or U, but the BA site seems to be easier than doing it this way.

Can you set an alert on CX Z or U inventory on the BA site and have it email you when it becomes available?

Just tried ef flight availability on cx for z and u inventory iad/hkg. I t shows u with no number. Checked Ba for the same date(7/26/2020) and shows 4 business available. Don't know if that's accurate as BA often shows shadow inventory?

This is interesting to me for booking some CX awards from AS in the future. I searched a couple days around Xmas on EF: there are several Z1 seats on several LAX-HKG flights, but nothing shows up on QF or BA. I even tried a few married segments to see if it might pop up, but couldn't make any F seats appear. I don't have a CX acct, so if someone could also check that side it might help our DPs.

I'm looking at 1 Oct CX198
On AM it's U6 T2 X6 (I did trial and error)
On BAEC it's U0 T0 X0
On EF it's P0 T2 X0

Is EF U/P/T/X data meant to represent anything?

JFKYVR (March) showing Z1 but BA/QF don't show awards in first. JFKHKG (June) showing Z1 and BA/QF DOES match. I'm not checking a ton of dates, just two particular days when I need to travel.
