Attention: You DO NOT need ExpertFlyer to do a simple fare availability check! READ LOWER IN THIS WIKI FOR DETAILS regarding the BCD Availability site.

FARE AVAILABILITY REQUESTS

For those of you inquiring about fare class availability but don't have access to EF or KVS, then you can use this thread to make your request.
At a minimum (mandatory), please provide:
1. Operating Airline
2. Flight Number (airport to airport name not necessary but wouldn't hurt to include)
3. Date of travel (or multiple dates for flexibility)

It may be helpful (optional) to also include:
4. The specific fare class(es) you are interested in (if applicable)
5. If the flight(s) you are inquiring about are part of a multi-segment itinerary, it may be helpful to include all segments (e.g. A -> B -> C) even if you only care about one of them.


ALTERNATIVE: DIY!

BCD Travel Tool for Fare Availability

FYI for those of you who don't have access to EF or KVS and feel that doing your own query suffices... this is a free availability checker site (BCD) from one of the travel blogger sites:
CLICK HERE for BCD Travel Fare Availability Tool

1. The "hover over" results can be copied and then pasted to a document editor, however, you may want to manually format the results to your liking
2. It doesn't return any fare class that is zeroed out, so for example, if you are looking for "R" and it doesn't show on the returned fare classes, it simply means that it is R0.
3. This is "bare bones" and doesn't have features like alerts, saved queries, etc.
4. You can only search for dates starting from today to within 10 months from today.
5. Requires Captcha (human) verification, so it can get annoying if you're doing multiple successive queries


Example of what the hover over result looks like:

BookingClass - Seat Availability
J - 9
C - 9
D - 9
Z - 9
P - 9
R - 3
O - 7
E - 6
Y - 9
B - 9
M - 9
U - 9
H - 9
Q - 9
V - 9
W - 9
G - 9
S - 9

I was wondering if someone could check for me the fare rules for S bucket on YTZ-YUL route. One of the flight pass options being sold books into S and I am trying to work out what, if any, advance notice is required to book this before they zero it out.

You don't need EF for this.

It clearly says seven days advanced purchase requirement in the high level rules for the Standard FP.

Hi everyone,

I have made an eUpgrade request and currently wait listed. Would someone please be able to check what are my realistic chances of being upgraded?

Flight Info:

Air Canada Rouge flight AC1948
YYZ to PTY

eUpgrade request to Business Class

If you need any more info just let me know, sorry if I've worded anything correctly here or something, this stuff is all new to me.

Thanks!

Noooo

Pretty consistent with my luck though. One more reason for me not to choose the eUpgrade select privilege this year...

Hello - I was wondering if anyone with EF could check AC169 (YYZ-YEG) on February 14th. I was wait listed for an upgrade and just curious what the chances are.

You don't need EF. You can use BCD for free.

Here is the master wiki thread for such fare check requests:
