Flying direct LAX-MOW using miles from a US airline

I'm trying to book a direct flight from LAX to SVO. I have miles with several different U.S. airlines- I can not find a single US-based airlines whose partner miles I can use to book on a direct flight from LAX to Moscow- from today to January of 2019. I would love to earn miles on Aeroflot but they don't have a US based credit card and short of flying with them to Russia- I don't see how to earn Aeroflot bonus miles. Is Aeroflot not releasing partner awards seats on these direct flights from the US anymore? Any thoughts/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

You'll have to search on the SV site to find availability and then call DL to hopefully be able to book it. I found availability on several randomly selected dates.

apparently there are issues with SU availability to partners:

All long-haul SU awards are zeroed out through end-of-schedule, confirmed by SkyMiles

also please don't post identical posts in different forums (DL)

Thanks as a newbie- in terms of posting identical post in forms- I put this in a SkyMiles one and a Russian based one. I'm sure not everyone who is a member of one forum is a member of the another and I wanted to get different people opinions. i.e a Russian based airline reader may have a solution that a SkyMiles reader wouldn't have. How would you suggest I got about get two separate groups eyes on one question...or does everybody read every forum on FlyerTalk?
