    What was once plentiful seems to have dried up terribly, even midweek in winter. There is plenty of availability coach, but I don't like coach.

    Anyonehave intel on this?

    Haven't checked any recently, where are you noticing it? I find that calling BA reveals different inventory than what you might search online, and of course quality of BA agents varies greatly.

    The same thing that happens to all deals internet bloggers tip people off to: they get loved to death. ;)

    This is not to say this is a bad thing- more that once someone popular blogs about it, count on the shelf life becoming limited.

    Fair enough. It is so tempting to kill the goose that lays the golden egg.

    Well, indeed, BA could find more.

    I booked BOS-DUB 7/18 in Y, which expertflyer could find, and

    DUB-BOS on 7/22 in C, which expertflyer could not find.

    But nothing could be booked directly on BA.com
