CX F-Class Award Seat Availability

CX F-Class Award Seat Availability

  1. David-SFO

    On a [URL=’’]post [/URL]few years ago regarding CX F-class award seats, Lucky stated that:
    [*]Typically within 24-36 hours of departure they’ll make all but one first class seat available for awards.
    [*]Typically about one to two weeks out, Cathay Pacific will open all but three first class seats for awards
    Does anyone know if these timeframes have been updated or have more precise timeframes?

    CX still releases F seats last minute but I think it’s more sporadic now or not as many seats. It also depends on when you’re traveling

  3. Luis

    that was true before but not anymore. CX is getting stingier and stingier with their F award seats.

    In general it seems the recent pattern is that Cathay won’t release award space unless the cabin is F4 or more, and will only release down to F3 in the days prior to departure. Sometimes we see more day of, but it’s less consistent than it used to be.

    I find a lot of time BA does not match with JAL on CX F availability. The worse part is Alaska can’t seem match either of them.
