2021 Reward Seats on Seat Spy

I’ve been keeping an eye on Seat Spy for Feb 2022 reward seats for a while now.
Having checked nearly every day, there has always been a peppering of seats throughout the rest of 2021 and a few going into January
When I checked last night, ALL remaining 2021 reward seats had disappeared. Seems odd that there isn’t a single reward seat listed in any class for the rest of this year?

Looks like every reward seat has been pulled until January to/from MCO to/from LHR/GLA/BFS/MAN. (unless it's a seatspy issue.)

I was looking for LAX, ended up with the full package from VHolls for a stupid price so ended up just booking that

According to a msg someone received from VA on Twitter, they have an IT issue regarding reward seats at the moment

Seems there are only Economy seats showing for MAN-BGI early next year, im guessing as some seats are showing this cannot be an IT issue.

Having never looked to book reward seats before is this normal, or related to VA just wanting to take the cash payments instead? I was hoping to get a PE seat for anytime between Jan to Apr.

I had a quick look at MAN-BGI and to be honest again the flights look pretty busy with Upper Class selling in J or C class and Premium in W for quite a few dates. Bare in mind, before Lockdown 3 happened there was lots of bookings for MANBGI that had been made for the start of this year, so again, its theoretically possible, that as its only a couple of days a week route that they are already loading really well on it, and that reward availability was snapped up by those who were displaced?

ColOrd, I think you could be right. With lots of flights being re-scheduled from the various lockdowns I am sure that most flights are looking healthy in terms of numbers and reward flights have already been snapped up.

There’s a lot of chatter about Barbados potentially being “green” when the list is published - probably on Friday - so I would expect significant demand for BGI.
