Just what is the point (pardon the pun) of collecting Asia Miles points when there is no possibility of using them for reward seats? They told me they could not book seats until 6 months before date of travel and then when I rang there were no seats available 2 weeks before or until 2 weeks after when I wanted to travel. Waste of time and money flying with any of their airlines.

I've been able to book seats 3 years in a row now. I usually use my Asia Miles for flying to Malaysia/HK for Chinese New Year and I haven't had any problems with booking seats to fly during that busy period.

You might have some stupid agent who is unwilling to help or just ignorant. What you need to do is HUACA (hang up and call again).

Have to agree with mo88mo but you need to book at least 355 days ahead especially in Y. It's also an expensive loyalty program.

I make lots of Asia Miles redemptions using CX and other oneWorld partners.
Actually Asia Miles is a free program, so not expensive at all.
I did what I was asked and got absolutely nowhere - I do not need to 'read the programme info' to know when I am being let down.

You can choose where to fly, when to fly and how much you pay. When booking award travel you get to choose two of those three things.
Like what everyone has mentioned before, as the loyalty program is very popular (due to the lower amount of miles required to fly compared to other programs out there), you really need to book way in advance especially for business class.
