    I was wondering if there was a way to track of use Expert Flyer to track for saver awards if one is not currently available but you would like one in future?

    I know you can set seat alerts but isn't that only helpful for specific seats?

    Or is the bottom line just keep checking UA or ANA tool when it comes to specific dates your looking for in an award?

    Thanks!

    Paid EF memberships can set alerts for awards on flights. You can also get it for free using my tool here.

    Just do an award/upgrade search on EF for the award you want, then in the results, assuming there is no availability, you can click on the exclamation point icon which will walk you through creating an alert for that flight/award. You have to do one alert for each possible flight I think.

    The expert flyer people are a helpful bunch so if you have questions, you can post them in the expert flyer forum listed under Concourse Z in the forum list.

    I think you have to subscribe to EF to do upgrade/award alerts, so if you're not seeing them, and you don't have a paid sub, that might be why?
