Economical Excursionist's Tools to compare Frequent Flyer Mile Redemptions

Hey Everyone,

I'm a long time FlyerTalk reader, and first time poster. I wanted to let everyone know about a website that I created that lets you compare frequent flyer mile redemptions across different programs for a certain origin and destination. This took me quite a long time to make, but I really think it can be a valuable tool to help decide which mileage program is the best to use depending on where you live and where you want to go. Before I release it to the general public, I wanted to give the FlyerTalk community a sneak peek and see if you guys think it's useful and if there are any ways I could improve it.

Currently the program compares redemptions in the following points currencies:
  • American Airlines (OneWorld, Off Peak, AA only)
