P fare bucket missing

Hello.. was just going thru some availability on expert flyer and noticed that the P fare bucket didn't show up. It was only H O I C J.

Is this new? something coming up? Checked multiple sectors

Thanks

It used to be that P was a full-fare First Class fare bucket instead of F. Now it shows F and A as First buckets, but I do notice that sometimes it shows P nestled in the J fares. I assume it is a F fare, since it used to show P4 when all the J fares show 7 (on a not full flight). If my memory serves me, P *would* appear on a flight operated by a 777. F would appear in the past on a 777 operated flight that was sky cruiser seats or a 330/340 with the 'deep recliners'.

P these days is the bucket that the ‘upgrade offers’ book into. You cannot access it any other way (as far as I am aware).
But they usually show on EF, so if they don’t do so at the moment there is some problem somewhere.

I remember way back, P was used for Private Suites in First.
