Of course, good luck finding business class availability!

Has anyone gotten the online B6 award search tool working? It never returns any availability for me despite AA showing it.

No problem with economy awards on QR; same inventory as other sites. I'm seeing QR business award seats on AA and BA websites but nothing showing up on JetBlue. I don't know if there's a trick to show business class availability or is everything blocked??

I did see LHR-DOH J on B6.com on the day of this announcement, it was around 50k.

Ya, can't even get the site to populate points on this route, whatever!

called to ask about qsuites / J space on a QR flight and JetBlue Agent replied saying "can't see any inventory" when clearly all the Oneworld partners and QR itself was showing saver "U" fare class space. Clearly something is off here...

Award flights originating from India are being charged an incorrect GST (Goods and Services Tax).

A one-way economy ticket is 53,000 JetBlue points, and the GST (5% of the ticket price) being charged is $2,650.

So each point is being valued at $1.

Ugh. This is why people want the government to get involved in regulating rewards programs. Companies like JetBlue have to screw up this badly and that ruins it for everyone.

This needs to be rectified ASAP. What a joke.

I see some QR business class tickets at Jetblue and Qatar but not on AA.com for the same date and flight. Not sure how AA.com can't see it but Jetblue is able to pick up that inventory.

Question is, Can you combine the positioning flight with Jetblue operated flight? XXX-BOS on B6 and BOS-DOH on qatar?

That's interesting. I don't see one lick of J availability from DOH-ORD. I see plenty of economy though for 39,000.

That's not bad at all. Only problem for me is that I refuse to fly QR unless I can link my AS# to get my OWS benefits. Last year I experienced the atrocity known as QR customer service and if that's how they treat elites I can't imagine how they'd treat a nobody.

Just seems like a tech glitch I had IAD-DOH show up available on JB then disappear 5 mins later

I was able to book two QR flights this evening (WAW-DOH-SFO) on the B6 website without too much trouble. I do think it is silly B6 doesn't offer an edit button to easily change destinations during the search process, though I found simply changing the from/to airport codes in the URL did the trick.

Flight wise, it was 116K TrueBlue points, though I've found no other use for them thus far. I transferred some in from UR to cover the difference between what I had in my account already (they appeared within a minute or two) and taxes were only $76.80. Not a bad redemption when the revenue flights are $7,500~ and it included 16hrs in Q Suites on the A35K! The ticket took one-two minutes to process and then it immediately appeared on the QR website and I had no issues selecting seats and filling out my APS information.

Has anyone experimented with booking an award flight on QR and then cancelling? I finally found a J award but it's showing up as non-refundable in the confirmation so don't want to book it if that's the case.
