Is there a way to search Skyteam partners award availability?

Is there a way to use one airlines' website to search award availability on all Skyteam airlines for award travel like you can do with Star Alliance by performing a search on ANA's website? thanks.

Sadly, no. NWA's Japan site provides a lot, but not everything. Most notably missing are SU, KQ, and CZ. Depending on where you are trying to get to this may or may not matter. KVS just leverages the NWA interface for their searches, so it isn't much better. With KVS you can search individual carriers on individual segments (I found some OK flights that way), but there is a lot of work involved in going segment by segment and carrier by carrier.

lots of work it is. continental.com for co and maybe NW and DL flights. KVS for AF, SU, and NW/KL flights. I still cant figure out AZ. I recommend KVS to everyone./

NW's site can be used to search NW and KL flights very well, and it does a decent job with CO and even AF flights too if you want to try routings yourself and look segment by segment. For CO and DL searches, I use DL's site.

So NW's site first, then CO and DL's site.

I agree with nwa.co.jp especially for KL & NW. A couple of the others (eg. AF & OK) can be found using a general availability tool like expertflyer.

I can often, but not always, find accurate SU information on NWA's Japan site

OK is easily found via KVS/ExpertFlyer, and also probably via seatcounter.com.

From the KVS FAQ:
SkyTeam Booking Classes
For OK Z=J and E=Y. My experience was that when I saw the E inventory on KVS CO was able to book the seats without issue.
