TAP Award Availability

Does anyone know how far in advance TP releases award inventory? I am primarily interested in J class or equivalent fare.

Thanks!

I don't know how far in advance they release it (sorry for not answering your question) but have noticed that TAP has started to release what seems to be less award availability and sometimes difference is not that much compared to actually buying the ticket.

On most long-haul flights they seem to relase 1 or 2 seats in J at T-365 to Miles & More, and then a few more seats at T-14 if revenue management expects them to go unsold. I would guess something similar happens with Aeroplan. Availability should be better if you book the award with TP's FFP Victoria.

I've noticed they've become very stingy with intra-EU award availability. Granted this is during the summer when loads are higher.

Does anyone have good info on when TAP typically releases intra-Europe availability? Specifically, I'd be looking for Aeroplan or UA MileagePlus availability.

If it helps, I booked flights on Aeroplan today, for travel in mid-June '19. Two seats in J, intra-European.

Does TAP ever release two business award seats in (I) during the peak summer season? I've set alerts since the schedule opened up, but it seems like only one seat gets released if ever.
