1) It would only take a newbie owner one time dealing with an EH "turn in" to figure out EH is not the best use of their points and they net VERY LITTLE out of the process (lesson learned, don't do it again). The process would rarely get repeated by that owner and they would "tell their friends" in the pool-side discussions.If an owner wanted to recover some maintenance fees through an Extra Holidays rental, wouldn't they reserve the best reservation available at 13 months or 10 months to turn in to Extra Holidays?
If Wyndham wanted to reserve the best inventory for Extra Holidays, they would have just captured all the cancel/rebook attempts inside of 60 days. The fact that cancel/rebook was so successful under the old system argues against your assumption.
2) Cancel / Rebook was the OLD system and likely did not use the same algorithms as we are seeing today. Initially (for many YEARS) WYN didn't even try to prevent Cancel / Rebook. The VC's assisted the process which infers that it was supported top-down. Do not think Happy's assumption is flawed, just not yet proven.
Not saying WYN still didn't take good inventory out of the old system to populate EH. As an owner, and developer, they have always had as much access (or more) to the available inventory as the owners have .....in the past.
As BigRob says:
"I don't think it's been established that "Wyndham is grabbing all the good reservations for Extra Holidays rentals."
What we know is that inventory is still incompletely and inaccurately being populated in the current Voyager system. Why it's taking so long remains a mystery. Ineptitude, complexity of data points, organizational cross-purposes. We have no idea. Likely it will remain a mystery until the smoke clears.
And then we are left with just the mirrors.... It's their thing.
