Most likely related to the fact the VS FC has been unavailable for over a week both online and to the CSRs. I suspect either the transfer feature isn't working (FC cannot accept points) and/or Amex doesn't want to deal with folks who transfer points and then cannot book. So Amex probably pulled until VS gets their damn act together. As an aside Amex may be doing you a favor as I personally would not increase my exposure at this point to VS FC at this time (between financial and IT issues they aren't instilling a lot of confidence in me) .

Edit: Just checked the Chase UR portal and VS FC is showing as "temporarily unavailable".

Ditto for UK. Chase also has restrictions on them.

VS is back to normal on my Amex USA account. It was not available to transfer this morning and the past week likely due to the Flying Club being down.
