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.

Okay, every registered user can now save bookings. Still more work to be done here, but it's been useful enough to the beta testers (with no reported issues since I fixed them all).

All saved bookings have been deleted and the feature has been turned off while I investigate a bug.

I'm confident the bug has been fixed, but once again, I'm keeping this as a private beta for a few days.

If anything happens again where I want to wipe the data and start over, I'll try to be more methodical about it, since 95% of the data was clean and safe. I also was not pleased that I had to re-add 17 bookings

The base cowtool.com site has a popup with AWS credential error at the moment. Doesn't seem to impact anything though.

I'm not seeing issues. I'd just try refreshing. But that has been something on my radar for a while.

I received the same error, logged in, and then received this error when searching a PNR: "An error occurred. Check your input and try again."

I didn't notice any issues, just figured I'd let you know. I figured that's why my PNRs were gone until I saw the note about deleting stored data. Apparently I got too ahead of the game last night. Now to find all my PNRs again..

The first PNR search I did failed as well, but I just hit search again and it was fine.

Update: Works now.

I'm starting to think I need a big red or green banner along the lines of "this booking appears to be (in)correctly issued and ticketed"

If there's a ticket number and each unflown segment has a coupon, it's green. Otherwise, it's red.

Edit: And literally right now I encountered one of my own that isn't ticketed... so yeah this seems useful

Yup, and a variety of PNRs, none of them were working. Went to sleep and now everything is better.

Looks like https://pqp.economiles.com/ is dead at the moment, so if you care about UA PQP, you're going to have to figure it out for yourself for the time being.

Edit: It should be back up soonish. It'll start working again as soon as that happens.
