Emirates awards with Mileage Plan no longer 330 days out
Anyone know when Emirates awards stopped going out to the end of the calendar on Alaska’s website? As of a few weeks ago I could find award flights on Emirates out to the end of the calendar, which was 330 days. If I now search out to the end of the calendar, options with other partners appear, but Emirates stops appearing about 324 days out.
Availability does come and go. EK may just not have released space for those dates yet.
Total speculation on my part but:
I feel like if you’re looking at the very end of the schedule for awards, they’re not always available at exactly 330 days out. Awards that far in advance might be loaded on a weekly basis or something, which is why you’re only seeing it 324 days out.
