    If CO.com starts showing LX F saver award inventory, then that is indeed great news!

    ETA: This was a tip :oops: Yeah, ANA tool it is...

    Tip? CO.COM still shows it so you don't just need to use the ANA tool.

    It seems CO.com shows some of LX's flights from YUL or ORD, but it does not show any from SFO or LAX, so one still may have to use the ANA SkyWeb page.

    Nope... If it's not there it means there's no availability at all... I saw SFO-ZRH available in F for yesterday night so it's definitely in there.

    Are you seeing situations where there is inventory on those flights on ANA but CO isn't showing them? I know that CO will not list a partner flight if there is no inventory in any cabin so I wouldn't expect to see the LX flights on every search.

    IIRC, this may be the case (CO Star carrier reward does not show unless available), but it seems the CO site tries to suggest many CO or UA awards. I will follow up.

    The CO/UA awards will nearly always be available because of the rule-buster awards where double (or more) miles allow for much greater access to seats. That doesn't exist on partners so it is much less common to see other airlines always listed.

    I regret that I did not note that I am only doing the search for Saver awards in First for the Star carriers. The UA-CO Saver awards do appear, and I ignore the Standard awards which are unreasonably priced.
