Does EF take into account your QFF status level? Expanded award availability is a known benefit.

Happy wandering
Fred
I believe it does, yes. You can enter your FF tier on your account page from memory and mine is set to Platinum.

In my experience expertflyer has never taken my status into account regarding award seat availability on QF.

it definitely does (sort of) with seat maps however.

Earlier this week, I contacted ExpertFlyer about a matter of viewing award availability. Here is an extract of their reply:

"… Also the QFF# on your account is for seat map searches and has nothing to do with the award searches …".

It is years since I helped out with these requests and I have to say again PLEASE make it easy for us by telling is the departure and arrival airports as expertflyer requires these. I can find it out using another tool (in this case FR24) but you already have this info!
