    I am planning a trip to Ireland this fall. I wanted to fly business at least one way.
    I want to fly originating ORD or MSP. After relentless searching using United's site and expert flyer I find zero award availability. Is this the new normal. I am using BA Avios.

    Thanks and best regards :)

    @Dslsmk I wasn't able to see any Aer Lingus availability (Y nor J) on BA. Someone else can chime in to correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe you need to transfer BA Avios over to Avios.com and book an Aer Lingus award there. Make sure to check availability prior to transferring the Avios.

    I book on the telephone to BA using BA Avios to buy the Aer Lingus award. The only problem is I can find no Business class award availability on any day.....

    Thanks
