Biz award fare code buckets

Just a note for those that are curious.

The international Biz-E award code buckets are O, OD, and OK for low, medium, and high redemption levels.

I didn't ask about the economy class award buckets.

Now all we need is for expertflyer or KVS to show these buckets' availability.

That's good news. Personally I prefer the KVS interface to ExpertFlyer, so when/if it comes you'll get yourself a new customer.

+1(ish). Once the mobile interface is up, EF is gone. I get more reliable results from KVS.

+1. This will cause me to switch from EF to KVS.

IT WORKS!! I just found a pdx-ams-fco-ams-pdx trip, BE in March that showed award availability at the "low" level on KVS, went to dl.com, signed on, searched for the round-trip award, selected the flights that KVS showed as low level and voila, 100k miles. I didn't even have to search by segment on either KVS or dl.com, I just put in the cities and let 'er rip.

That's certainly great to hear -- enjoy your award!

How appropriate. Bucket O ("oh") might as well be hard-coded to 0 ("zero"). Easier for the programmers.

Does KVS show V/G/X/Z availability now. I seem to remember that in the past it might not have.

All DL award classes are supported in the KVS Tool, but upgrade classes are not. Please see http://Help.KVSTool.com/#Classes

Arrow Resolved: [Awards/SkyTeam] Method Issues

KVS Tool members are reminded to upgrade to the latest version (V5.4.4). This will resolve any "Data Source Error" issues when using the [Awards/SkyTeam] Method.
