Woo hoo - booked 2 J award seats SEZ-AUH-SYD on Eithad. As everyone knows EY seats don't show up online - and often agents can't find them either. But it worked today - agent found them with no issues. 80,000 points pp and $118 (AUD) in taxes.
Searched on Air Canada website - I have points with AC too and that was my fallback plan if AA could not "see" the seats - AC would have been 100,000 points pp (which is a bit of a wash as AA points cost more per point - about 2.5 AUD cents vs 2.0 AUD cents for AC - when buying during a promo).May I ask how you search (and found) availability?
