I doubt that the system is that sophisticated that the connecting time comes into play. If you’re successful they should notify you 24-48 hours prior to your departure time.

Not sure what we can say this far out. Both flights are J9, W9, Y9 and QF7 is F9. I would think load factors would be a guide, and perhaps someone will have a view of QF85 in that regard. There does seem to be a lot of disappointment recorded on this and related threads for people seeking ugrades on QF7.

The flight I'm asking about is Finnair - AY0005 which flies direct from HEL (12:40) to JFK (14:50).

When I checked earlier in the year, I could find many business class seats but only economy is available for the later part of the year (Nov-Dec 2020). Is business no long available for this flight? Looking to fly in 2020 around this time.

This is the loading for 4/11/20


AY 5HEL 12:40p → JFK 2:50p
J9 C9 D9 I9 UC Y9 B9 H9 K9 M9 L9 V9 SC NC QC OC Z9 G9 X4 EL

Beyond this date the system responds “airlines have not released information for this date”. Possible the service is being discontinued or AY for some reason AY is not scheduling flights 12 months out

It’s like a quiz. If I guess you are travelling on QF then the loading look like this


QF 41SYD 1:50p → CGK 5:30p
J5 C5 D5 I4 U2 Y9 B0 H0 K0 M0 L0 V0 S0 N0 Q0 O0 G0 X0 E0

Your chances depending on status look reasonable given their are two classic award seats available

Does that mean business class is available for 04/11/2020? I checked on both Qantas and BA and the only flight available is economy. Have also checked the days within a week but still only economy.

Have you tried the AY website? Are you looking for paid flights or award flights? Must admit I didn’t hit book now but seems bookable
