Phantom Delta One Availability

Hi,

Has anyone here seen instances where Delta is showing on its award calendar non-stop US -> Europe or v.v. for 80,000 in Delta One and when the same flight is looked up with Virgin Flying Club for some days it shows unavailable and for others 50,000 Flying Club points as anticipated?

Any workarounds/long-sell type things to do when it appears availability ought to be there but VS can't pick it up/phantom availability?

The more I search the more I think VS is filtering out Delta One availability in the month of April 2020 on any route - anyone successfully find one?

Your underlying premise is wrong - i.e. that any awards (even saver level) on DL are definitely available to VS.

VS awards on partner airlines are as much art as science. Searching on partner websites is an excellent way of not wasting time calling VS. But it's not definitive.

Your best bet is to call Flying Club and see if the agent you get is a particularly good one.
