I was just about to post about this. Very problematic. I had been trying to book some family members to Europe and had been assembling segments w/out clicking through and then found that the VS space is indeed phantom availability. I thought I had found 2 seats from ORD, MIA and several others... Bummer...

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.

Is AF blocking awards from DL again? Seeing tons of classic award availability on SFO-CDG but it doesn't show up at DL or on EF. Eventually I'll just call in and check but wondering if ppl know more here?

On SV, D is a revenue class (per DL website as well). For J award, I believe the class is O (per DL agent) and that is currently n/a in both KVS and EF. I have let those 2 know already.

Is there anywhere I can see the "rules" for partner award redemption? I tried to book a J award on SV and was told that "as per rules, SV award booking can only be done on flights originating in the US". Just trying to find out where these master rules are kept..

KVS Tool continues to support SV Award Availability and the User Guide has now been updated with its new Booking Classes:

I've updated it now, thanks for the heads up. Seems like KVS is fixed but EF still needs to update as they are still showing A/D/L or M for F/J/Y.

Sorry for the completely newbie question (not a DL flyer, but trying to help my fiancee spend her SkyPesos).

Looking at redeeming for an intra-Europe award (15k one-way), from VIE to LIL. Would we actually be allowed to book VIE-CDG/(2-day stopover)/ORY-BOD-(9-hour connection)-LIL as one award?

VIE-PAR-BOD-LIL was what EF gave me when I did a search for inventory.

Thanks.

I just booked this and am within the 24 hour change period. Any suggestions for extra segments or better maximizing the routing?

LAX-CDG AF (A380) (3 hour layover)
CDG-PRG Czech Airlines

stop over @ PRG 4/5 days
PRG-SAW (cash ticket - $100 pp)

IST-FCO-LHR AZ w/overnight @ LHR
LHR-LAX VS (A340)
125miles + $140 taxes per person

Overnight @ LHR because VS flight departs @ 11 am.

Chose PRG (over BUD) partly because the CDG-PRG connection worked well and it is cheap to get a non stop from PRG-SAW. While I could have done LAX-CDG-CMN, it looked time consuming and expensive to go from CMN-IST.

I am thinking of cash for PRG-SAW, but I did note that the SAW airport is quite aways from IST.... But if I use AF or KL to IST it's an all day flight with a connection....

Happy to have avoided extra taxes for -LHR and -CDG departures. Will use SPG points for basic LHR hotel overnight.

Appreciate any input while I am still able to modify itin

A friend of mine has YUL-CDG-DXB booked as part of a return leg. He just found out that he can't fly CDG-DXB tomorrow and will need to stay back in CDG. What happens to the last leg as he has already used the free stop over on the way out.

Can he discuss with AF at CDG to reschedule it for a few days later? Its due to a genuine reason. Should he take it up with DL/AF or his Insurance company?
