Non OW specific

http://kvs.unrealnetwork.com (KVS support thread) and
http://www.expertflyer.com/ - to check OW fares (may be more up-to-date than official OW sources) and availability.

http://matrix.itasoftware.com/cvg/dispatch - to check on whether one should use a ONE segment or pay for a segment separately.

great circle mapper - working out unofficial distances, anywhere in the world (reasonably accurate)

amadeus

seatcounter availability tool

I donít know if you want to include non-OW sites. If not, just delete this message, but I use the following most frequently.

To check OW fares (may be more up-to-date than official OW sources), but particularly to check on availability, I use: http://www.expertflyer.com/

To check on whether one should use a ONE segment or pay for a segment separately, I try to find the best separate fare on: http://matrix.itasoftware.com/cvg/dispatch

Great link collection. Make it a sticky, maybe.

One link suggestion from me. The OneWorld network map. Similar to the RTW tool but without the baggage. Great for planning.

Some people use KVS instead of ExpertFlyer. It offers both US & UK POS possibilities, so occasionally has a slight edge on EF if booking via ba.com. Support is here on FT.

(Thanks, Kiwi Flyer for your efforts, BTW.)

I suggest a different title, and a more complete list, along the wiki entry "Members and affiliate members" found here:

I suggest adding Mexicana (MX) and Clickair (XG) to the respective lists as future members, perhaps with (2009) next to them.

And maybe their websites:

http://www.mexicana.com
http://www.clickair.com

And possibly their FT forum:
