    I have used my miles on United for years but cannot find any saver award business or first availibility on United/Star Alliance from anywhere in the US to anywhere in Europe on any airline from April through summer 2015. How bizzare! Is it me?

    I think so, Tony. I see availability to LHR and Geneva from IAD pretty much every day. I see EWR to MAN. Bith 30k and 60k awards, and 100k and 120k J awards.

    I was helping a friend look for award flights from SFO > FCO for April / May and I was surprised how limited saver awards were. His options were limited to coach for rather select dates. This is not a route I typically monitor so I don't know what the norm is but I was a little surprised. I guess one must look further in advance for choice European destinations.

    Or later. Availability goes up as well as down. Keep checking. You can also check for individual segments - e.g. can you get the IAD-FCO now, and worry about SFO-IAD separately? or ???-FRA, etc.

    Common misconception. The airlines do not necessarily dole out a set of award seats once and when they're gone it is over. Award inventory is dynamic just like revenue seats.
