Been trying to book a return business class seat from LA for Jan next year. Have been trying for the last three days exactly the required days in advance 355 and their have been no seats.

I have tried at differnt times through out the day with no luck.

Is anyone able to offer advise? Does anyone know what time of day the seats are loaded into the system 355 days in advance?

Thanks

It varies by a couple of days. I had a similar issue when I booked my return flight from LAX-MEL.

Also, if you are a SC or higher you will have a better chance of getting award flights. If you have a relative who is one, ask them to get one for you. If you are desparate enough then transfer the points to that person and get them to buy it for you.

Alternatively, when you are talking to the Qantas person, tickets sometimes pop up on the screen. That is how I managed to get my return flight.

Regards
Daniel
