Have been watching the award availability for J awards SYD -DXB for some time as am planning a trip for 4. I knew this was tricky but I was finding some availability, especially out of Melbourne. I hadn't checked in for a little while but now I notice that all the flights out of Melbourne and Sydney seem to have no more then 2 J awards as they come available. Anyone know if this is a new paradigm? Perhaps a pre July rush?
