Summer Award Travel: What's Up?

I just got off the phone with United GS trying to book summer award travel to europe on LH and they had no FC seats from the west coast in July. Zip from SFO, DEN or LAX. Any idea what is up?

Those seats are in high demand and summer is not too far away at this point...

Ask them to look for LH seats from BOS, JFK or EWR. I scored 2 seats from JFK to MUC and return through FRA, and I just had them add the domestic segs afterwards. Takes a nice agent to look for this; I believe that they are *supposed* to do it by start point/end point. The stupid reservations system only looks for standard connections, which means routing through IAD, ORD or other Hubs. I didnt have any luck for PDX, DFW, DEN or MIA, but I know that there were still seats as of last week out of the east coast destinations.
