    American has become one of the stingiest airlines when it comes to releasing premium cabin transatlantic award space. While they still release first class award space on many routes to Asia, that's not the case to Europe. I certainly understand planes are fuller than in the past, so the opportunity cost to releasing award seats has increased greatly, but they literally have virtually no space. For example, on all their routes between the US and London next June, they have no dates with saver level economy or business class award space, and two dates with saver level first class award space. What's fascinating, though, is how American releases premium cabin award space when they do. "Z" is their saver first class award inventory, and in many cases a flight will either have no saver first class award seats or at least seven saver first class award seats.
