Feature Requests / Bug Reports
  • More direct links to partner airline "manage booking" pages
  • For points bookings, show how many points were used
  • Sometimes when you have UN segments, it doesn't show the entire PNR
  • How about a one tool using the other: PNR lookup tool could show R space available Y/N if pax isn't already upgraded.
  • Can seat # be a clickable link to carrier manage booking/seat?
  • Display ticket create date/time, helpful to know when reticketed due to schedule change.

On a somewhat similar topic, try getting the AQMs on TP for a leg upgraded with SAUA... I gave up. However in the past, I did get the AQDs on an LH group airline after an upgrade. Namely SN.

But here, does the source used even have access to the history, so that cow can identify the issue?

He seems to be doing it for eUp's which show "R". I assume he's pulling the booking bucket from the first letter of the Fare Basis. But I may be making a poor assumption.

I'm using the fare basis. For North American, the last two letters (BA/TG/FL/CO/LT/PL/PF). For international, the first letter.

It's currently hard-coded that X/I/O are 0, because I didn't consider SAUA. Should be an easy fix.

Hi cow,

Today I'm catching up with a bunch of conference cancellations to cancel some flight pass travel to and from Europe. For one return segment I was originally on the direct LHR-YOW. Yesterday I received a notice of a routing change to LHR-YYZ-YOW, I assume because 889 won't be operating that day.

I was unable to cancel the flight using the fp section of the website. So, I went back to the re-routing email and followed the trail to the "accept new flight" or something like that. It didn't work.

So I thought I would look via the cowtool, but I can't pull up the PNR. I'm sure it's because I haven't been able to accept the routing change and I'll need to call in. But before I do, are you interested in trying to view my PNR to see what weirdness is going on?

No, it looks like something else is broken. I'll check it when I'm on the ground today or tomorrow.

I'll also see if I can change the error message to be more clear whether everything's broken, or it's just a booking I can't handle.

And I see that my recent trip on said SAUA on LH was credited as 0. Sigh. Given how few miles even a B fare gets on Luffy Domestic not sure it is worth the energy.

I have it working for me, but I'm struggling to package it in a manner that can be published. Don't worry, there's ongoing work. And for anyone who has a specific question about a PNR they're concerned with, you can PM me.

No chance the SDK license would allow for a private GitHub repo?

I'm not sure what you mean. I have a private GitHub repo.

Then it's only "private" by GitHub's definition.

You know I mean "Closed to the masses, but shared to a trusted group."
