Thumbs up The Tool Rocks!

I'm a long time user of the KVS Availability Tool and it has been very helpful in general. But today I found out just how useful it can be.

I have quite a number of AS miles and wanted to use them for a BA Trans-Atlantic FC partner award. AS requires these to be made via phone. Prior to calling I used the oneworld award setting to research availability. Since I'm going in July, this was very limited. Also I wasn't sure if a positive availability meant it was available for BA Members only, all oneworld programs, and/or any partner program (incl. AS).

After waiting for about 20 minutes on hold, I gave the agent my request, and she confirmed that all was available. I know I would have spent a long time on the phone had I not "known" what was available.
