Premium economy seats on Finnair are visible in Asia Miles website but can't actually book it - anyone had this before?

Weird scenario - I’ve been looking at one-way sectors in Asia Miles and have found:

HEL - SIN on Finnair
Premium Economy
Dep 1st August
Seats are available for redemption

But when I actually click on it, I get this message:

It’s the same for the HND-HEL route on 27th June.

I’ve been in touch with Cathay and they say there’s no premium economy available on Finnair from their end, only economy and business.

When I talked with Finnair, they say premium economy is available on those flights and to book through Cathay… :thinking: :man_facepalming:

So frustrating because if I could secure these flights, I’ll be able to get my family over to Europe using points in premium for the Asia-Europe leg!

Proposed itinerary for myself and my daughter is:

SYD-HND (Paid premium)
HND - HEL (Premium on points)
HEL - SIN (Premium on points)
SIN - SYD (Paid premium)

For my wife and young daughter who are leaving for Europe earlier but we are all returning together:

SYD-HKG (Paid Premium)
HKG - FRA (Premium on points - secured)
HEL-SIN (Premium on points)
SIN - SYD (Paid Premium)

All sectors are one-way tickets.

Anyone had this issue before??

Can you see the same award availability via other OneWorld partners like Qantas, JAL or British Airways?

If available on other OneWorld partners, it should be available via Asia Miles

Some award space are phantom space, which can be frustrating.

@w.hiew - thanks for the suggestion.

I’ve checked Qantas and I can see those flights but only economy availability. I guess I’m out of luck with those PE seats then, damn! Back to the drawing board…
