    I've been trying to look for fares but no matter what browser i can't get the fare buckets to show in expert mode on the first leg (or none at all for non-stop flights) and only shows on the 2nd segment making it useless.

    Is anyone experiencing similar issues?

    Thanks!

    International segments aren't showing inventory. Highly annoying.

    Expert Mode has been broken for several days. The fare buckets that are displayed on the second segment are inaccurate.

    Well, I'm glad it isn't just my PC that's messed up (which it usually is). I've been missing this for days!

    I sincerely hope that this isn't a Deltification... one of the remaining and very valuable features of MP is the ability to search for and book flights that offer R availability. If RPU/GPU become unusable, then kayak rules supreme and Open Skies - the nightmare of all the cartelist US-major managers - is one step closer...

    I hope so too. But I think occam's razor applies here. It's United.bomb. The simplest and most likely explanation is they screwed it up :)

    The information that comes out on secondary legs is indeed wrong too. I've been calling in often to check on availability since expert mode went down. When they see their CSRs bogged down by bucket questions, you'd think IT would get in a hurry to fix it.

    This sucks. I was looking at some flights last night and running into this problem as well. Hope they get it fixed quickly.

    I have been checking R space from IAH to AMS for December. Practically every day was available up to Christmas, now nothing but 0 hope this works itself out soon.

    no one on United support knows about this or cares.

    Anyone finding R space back or is it still screwed up, I find perhaps one or two when I look at flights but they are on connections domestic to international, so don't know if the R is International or not. Can calling res solve this for me?.

    Everything seems to be back to normal. Found R space to Europe great fare and was able to confirm R space, used my last GPU, will sink to Gold 2017 so the ride up front is pretty much over unless I use miles.
