As my point balances grow I'm looking at some overseas trips. But what I'm finding out is that's more difficult than I hoped. For example... Trying to get to Ireland, going ORD-DUB on Aer Lingus. But finding 5 business class seats? Sounds like that's not happening. Doing some dummy searches I can see 4 seats, but apparently the most they will release is two, and even in economy 5 seats is going to be tough (or so I'm told). I've also read United will often show a lot of phantom space, so you think you can book a bunch of seats but in reality can only get two. So what is a person like me to do? Not only for this type of trip, but for any overseas trips? Is it a destination problem or airline problem? I can't be the only one trying to find 5 premium award seats.
