    Hi Lucky, I have a question about award availability from a specific outbound location. I'm trying to look for a J ticket from PVG or HGH to MLE. I was able to find availability from PVG to MLE, but has struck out at finding one from MLE back. I tried JAL, BA, and Qantas. The Qantas search was interesting in that, I wasn't even able to put in MLE as a starting location. And when I did use the RT search, the CX600 listed only showed Economy in its column, even though CX600 has J cabin. Does airline block award from a specific outbound location? Thanks!

    @ Kai -- Hmmm, you should be able to search it in the other direction as well, and they don't block space on that route as far as I know. Have you tried just searching through Cathay Pacific's website? They should be better about displaying space on their own metal. In this case it sounds like there just might not be availability, though.
