Rookie questions...

The awardchart for booking in 2014 and traveling in 2015 says "Businesselite, First or Business"

Is it possible to use those awards to travel in F on a partner award?

No. Not international, three-cabin first class, like AF's La Premiere. You can get plain old domestic First Class on a partner like Alaska, but that's it.

Just managed to redeem skymiles for two business tickets on Garuda Airlines, one to Jakarta and another one to Bali just 2-3 weeks prior to actual travel. This does not happen very often! Thank you Delta and Garuda!

I'm seeing lots of "Classic" availability on airfrance.us for flights ex-CDG in J in October. Both DL agents and the SkyTeam desk say DL can't see that inventory. Is there something else I should be asking for or a different desk I should be talking to?

Try calling DL Singapore.

I thought AF only releases a subset of award inventory for booking AF metal with DL miles.

I'm 99% certain that's true for upgrade-with-miles inventory on AF metal, and would imagine it also applies to general award bookings.

KQ availability?

Trying to book a DL/AF/KQ award. I can see KQ availability for a certain flight (HAH-NBO or DZA-NBO) on airfrance.com and on EF but Delta agents can't see availability on that flight....

I'm looking to book SFO -> AMS (or anywhere else in northern Europe, really) for a 11-14 day trip sometime around Memorial Day week in May. I'm trying to be strategic with my vacation days, leaving before a weekend and coming back right after one - though this isn't a strict requirement.

I have about 40,000 Skymiles, 22,000 SPG points, and 50,000 MR points. I'd prefer a low-level coach award.

Delta seems out because the lowest I've found for my travel dates is around 95,000 + $100. I haven't tried booking via a DL agent yet.

Is my only option Flying Blue? I can book a KLM flight for 50,000 + $230.

There's an outbound on Virgin Atlantic SFO to LHR on May 11 and 28. Not ideal, but it's an award. It's 21,250 miles and $131.50. You can convert from Amex MR.

Has anyone else seen a problem recently with 'phantom' Virgin Atlantic Space?

For example, searching 2 tickets LHR-JFK June 7th 2014.

VS9 and VS25 both return available during the search; but you get the "We're sorry. One or more of the flights you selected just sold out. Please search again to view and select alternate flights." message when you try to click through.

I tried calling, and I get varying reports from the agents on what they can see for those flights; but it's never the 2 seats reported by the search tool.

I'm looking to book two reward tickets on Aeromexico from MCO to MEX around April 2015. Is there a better way to go about this than the 35,000 Skymile per ticket price listed on Delta?
