Regional flight redemption availability

Has something changed in the last 1-2 days with regional flight award availability? Searching on the BA website:
- TPE-HKG has no availability for at least a week, starting April 8
- SIN-HKG has no availability for at least a week, starting April 2
- SGN-HKG around that time also drops to no flight for at least a few days
- HKG-KUL stops on April 2 (including Cathay Dragon)

Prior to these days (end March/early April) there is wide-open economy and business availability. I confirmed one of the days for SIN-HKG with an AA phone agent who saw no flights available.

Is there a schedule change going on maybe?

CX has seemingly scaled back awards to partners, but the first half of April is also peak season for Easter holidays.

Having said that, I searched TPE-HKG using Asia Miles and it is wide open for awards the week up to Sat, April 11th.

FWIW, cash fares on those legs are pretty cheap due to LCCs. You can fly HKG-SGN return for under USD 100 on Vietjet (though not necessarily during Easter).

Ahhh....Easter! Hadn't thought of that. I bet that's the explanation. Had more time when I came home from work and searched some more, and SIN-HKG ends up wide open again starting around April 20.

Thanks for the extra info!
