FlyerTalk Forums Thread Wiki: KVS Availability Tool
Please read: this is a community-maintained wiki post containing the most important information from this thread.
 
Last edit by: Xyzzy
Where does the KVS tool get its data and is KVS authorized to provide this data in the manner it is presented?

The tool is known to access a variety of web sites, many in a manner that is not authorized. Please see the next section of this Wiki for a list of sites believed to be accessed and their data access policies (where known).

Additionally, under some conditions the tool appears to access sites via a KVS-operated back end. This means that the tool is not just a 'web browser' that runs via a user's machine. No detailed public information is available about how this works or whether any of this back-end access is authorized.

Is there any way to search for multiple airports at one time (example: BOS to LAX, SNA and ONT)? I searched for an answer but couldn't find one.

Of course, its pretty easy to search individually and compile, but I wanted to be sure I wasn't missing something.

No, as the existing reservation systems cannot handle these kinds of requests.

When I call SK resevations they say there is no award availability for any of the flights.

In fact they say there is no seat left even to purchase.

When I go to Singapore Airlines web site I also get no seats for sale.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Looks like SQ had [mis-]loaded incorrect award availability data for that flight into StarNet ...

problem getting DL seat maps -graphical

Seems once you select (for DL flights) a Apollo seat map in First when u go back and select economy Y it will only display the F seats. Used BOS to ATL
and select Y and it pulls up F graphical. Same thing with Appolo text. Armadeus text works OK.

What's the flight number/date?

If the flight is zeroed-out in that cabin, you cannot use the Apollo seat map options. In those cases, Amadeus should be used instead.

Red face data source error

Hi,
currently I'm facing with a problem in using KVS tools.
When I use in a direct Internet connecting environment, it works fine. However,
when I use in a company LAN which requires proxy setting, KVS generates "data source error" for the initial try, and ">>>>>>> time out" for the second try.
I confirmed IE (IE7) setting was correct, and could reach to the multiple Internet site through this settings from IE7.
How shall I investigate the cause of this problem next?
(In the past, when I was using IE6, I could use KVS tools even in this company LAN environment).

Rgds,

What's the exact Data Source Error message? Have you followed all connection troubleshooting tips at http://FAQ.KVSTool.com? Does your corporate proxy server require a username/password?

As I'm using Japanese version Windows XP, so I could not read the detailed message after "Data Source Error", just several meaningless Kanji characters are displayed.
As for the trouble shooting, I've checked Cookies, but I could not find "Proxy Authentication Options" under the purple button, I could only find "Internet Options" under the button. Where can I find the "Proxy Authentication Options"?

[Proxy Authentication Options] is coming soon.

In the meantime, for proxy servers requiring authentication:
  • Edit the KVS_AvailabilityTool.ini file and add the following:
    [Settings]
    ProxyAuthorization=username:password

When you view a PNR using KVS Availabilty, what is it you see other than the itinerary (let's assume I have a reservation with AA)?

Flights are NOT zeroed out.
For example use BOS-ATL for DL on May 6.
Pick flight 701 (the first one displayed)
Select Appolo Graphical Seats Coach. Only the F seats are displayed when I select Y, coach. Appolo text does the same thing.
Amadeus text is OK.

It appears that when a Y-class seat map is requested, a DL YUP fare kicks-in and the ITN engine shows the F-class seat map.

This issue will be corrected in the next version of the KVS Tool.
