    Am looking to book an award to asia and back for august. Plenty of options with almost every day available at the saver level on both UA and AA for the outbound. Total crickets on the return - I mean nothing. Haven't seen anything like this in quite a while. What do you guys think is going on?

    I don't know but I see it all the time when trying to book saver UA partner first awards, lots of options going to Asia - NONE coming back 2 or 3 weeks later (altho in my case I've been lucky with getting award back on AA (well cathay) - but this is all months out.

    Look for EVA Airways speace TPE-LAX/SFO/JFK (you don't want the 5x weekly SEA flight, lesser aircraft). Not available currently on the united website. Searchable on the Aeroplan site and ANA site.
