There is something strange going on with Emirates. A couple days ago I searched BNE-DXB and DXB-SAW as a multicity and there was availability almost every day in Feb in economy. Heaps of flights like 4 or 5 economy at least each day. Now nothing but first and business is coming up. Are they doing some work on their end? Will the availablilty come back?
OK I have an update on what to do in this situation. If QF is not showing availability in the class you want, you can call and they will book it over the phone. I did this a few hours ago and still waiting for the e-ticket to arrive.
Since hold times were so long, I double-checked availabilty with Emirates who confirmed that N class was available. Then I went on Alaska AIr website to make sure partners could book the seats just in case EK gives more availability to their own members. Everything checked out.
There must be some kind of technical issue that is causing award class N to not show up in QF displays sometimes. But if EK can see it, QF reps can see it.
Thanks for doing the leg work Tiki to figure this out. I was close to pulling the trigger on an Emirates award in May, during a period with wide open availability, and was disappointed when *everything* disappeared overnight!
