Must have been a transient issue with the [Awards/VS] Engine -- please try your search again and advise if the error message persists.

As with most other carrier-specific Award/Upgrade Availability Methods in the KVS Tool, the [Awards/VS] Method is included at the Diamond membership level -- please see the [Detailed View] at http://Levels.KVSTool.com for more info.

I'm a Diamond and never saw that feature. Will save me hours, if I can only find how to set it up.
You don't actually need to set anything up -- the KVS Tool will automatically show an Award Calendar for VS if there is no Award Availability on the requested date.

VS had changed its Premium Economy Award Booking Class from U to P.

The top post & the KVS Tool User Guide have been updated accordingly:

I've just found at least 2 seats on the LHR-SYD-LHR (via Hong King) in Upper Class 22/04/14 - 10/06/16

There is also availability on the LHR-NYC flights up to the 15th June.

What classes did you come up with on the LHR-SYD-LHR route? I'm looking for the reverse route.

Upper Class both way - I didn't check Premium or Economy as I wouldn't travel that distance in anything less.
