Totally pathetic situation.
Totally agree. I chose to use the priority service in my UKVI application, but this doesn't give me any special treatment at UKVCAS. I'm simply unable to book an appointment within 5 days, which is a prerequisite for the priority service to work as it should.
I was actually unsure about the new service when I paid for my application, but UKVCAS doesn't show you the availability until you have paid the money.
The only thing you can do now is to do a thorough search of all the service points. (You have to try different postcodes to see those in other cities. Only the two nearest service points, plus one "core" and one "premium" service points, are shown.) For those who haven't paid the visa fee, my recommendation is to use the existing service if possible.
