A simple search Toronto - Munich resulted in:

Toronto - Los Angeles - Munich

I believe it's only showing UA and CM availability, even when searching "all airlines." That said, the CM availability is really good.

I couldnt find availability in Europe on any flights in July. Which is weird, considering Europe being heavily dominated by Star Alliance (LH, LY, SN, SK, OK etc). I also think it's still work in progress. Nonetheless it's great that one can now book CM award flights online.

Agreed.

There are plenty of programs where you must call to book partners (including LH and SQ) so not terribly surprising that initial roll-out seems to include only CM and UA availability.

Just found this out by chance while logging in. Must be a soft launch if they haven't even sent a simple email to let us know.

If anybody books anything online would appreciate comments about the experience.

Did a search for MUC-FRA and got plenty of nonstop options with LH showed up. The system may not be able to handle other routings yet.

Edit: Called to request more info. They are not selling miles yet but working on it. They are also working on the option of transferring miles.

Trying to book a quick weekend trip. UA shows plenty of availability at a variety of redemption options in Y & J. Copa shows zip.

i can only find UA availability online when its a direct flight. For anything that requires a connection, the website shows nothing. I guess I need to call to try and see if it works
