    I understand the release date for award tickets is 330 days ahead of the flight. But how do they handle the return flight ,say its a two week trip to Great Britian ? Is it necessary to do a series of One Way flights. Also is it possible to purchase Economy Plus seats after you have your award seats?

    Thanks DB

    330 days out is the inventory window, so if your departure is 330 days out, there will likely be no inventory for your return. And you can purchase E+ seats at any time after you've made your reservation, assuming they're available.

    While this is the earliest seats can be made available there is no guarantee that it will happen at 330 days out. Don't bet on that and it will be easier on you when it doesn't happen.
