Aeroflot award ticket USA - SVO

Hi

Trying to book an award ticket from JFK to SVO with miles in business class - only see availability come up on Aeroflot's website but not Delta, Alitalia, ...etc
Any luck booking US - SVO awards through other Sky Team Airlines? I've read around there have been multiple issues.

Thanks

Aeroflot is the only airline that offers direct flights between JFK and SVO. Delta ditched that route a few years ago. Are you looking to fly direct or willing to do so with a connection?

If there's one thing that SU are good at it's direct flights in business class (as long as one can avoid the A330 sloping bed).

So it means Aeroflot does not release J award seats to partners. Many airlines do this

For quite some time now, Aeroflot has blocked award availability to Delta. No clue why, but there are reports of it in the Delta forum if you search back a few months.

And thank goodness for that!

Speaking as an SU gold, with SU miles. There is too much delta miles floating aroundÖÖ..the last thing we need is vultures snagging what seats we have.
