After new route, when are awards available?
Hey! I’m wondering how long after the start of a new route award seats typically shows up. I’m looking at flights to Seychelles on Qatar and know they just relaunched that route today. BA doesn’t have any availability yet. Hoping to travel later this winter but hoping to figure out if it’s worth the wait or if it could be many months before BA has availability to those seats.
It varies, I would just keep an eye on it. They could load award inventory in with the other fare buckets, or they might not release space at all.
