    Everyone knows that domestically qantas release 2 [or more?] business award (U class) seats on almost every flight 355 days before the flight. The question is at what time line are more business award seats released for a flight. I have heard the suggestion that it is 2 weeks before and then again 3 days before.

    What is people's experience on this?

    thanks

    MelUser,

    Log in regularly and check. From previous comments here there does not appear to be any pattern at all.

    It rests with the 'yield management gods' alone :!: :rolleyes:

    Although I havn't used FrequentFlyerFriend.com - Welcome in a while, doesn't it still have the functionality? I still like Expertflyer even though it now is very poor upgrade wise. Helps me with certain tasks such as fares, routings and availability on certain days.

    If that is true, I will whip out my credit card now. 40% discount as I am a paid up http://www.frequentflyer.com.au/community member is also a bonus!

    I believe that's resolved with the latest version:

    "Version 2.4 Changes:
    -Now handles new Premium Economy Class"
