Domestic economy reward ticket availability

Hey everyone, bit of a lurker coming out of the woodworks to discuss a possible change in reward seating availability?

It seems like economy reward seats now correlate with the availability of saver lite tickets? As in, if the flight has saver lite fares for sale then there will be reward redemption seats. If not, no economy reward seats.

To my knowledge that wasn't the case, up until the beginning of this month. Before that I was able to book economy reward flights even when there were no saver lite fares available to buy on the flight.

Has anyone noticed this? Or are economy reward tickets considered such "poor value" redemptions that noone even bothers booking those?

I must note that this is based on my search for domestic economy reward fares only. Not sure if international or business rewards seating is affected in the same way...

Or has this always been the case and I am going crazy?
