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.

The Cowtool appears to be timing out again at around 60 seconds when a PNR is selected for viewing. It was working fine earlier today.

It's back up, and I've made some code changes to hopefully prevent this from happening again.

Having issues with a single, semi-complex, reward booking for two that was displaying correctly until a schedule change which an agent said needed re-ticketing. Now unable to display any info via cowtool (which was never the case for any prior changes on this itinerary) and only get "An error occurred. Check your input and try again." Things seem fine on the AC itinerary display but, I've gotten to the point that I trust the tool more...

Am I just being paranoid? The voyage involves four *A partners outside AC over 2 1/2 months... If it's helpful, the partners are A3, EK, SQ & VA.

If you want to PM me the reference/name, I can take a look.

I'm starting to wonder if I should have a "send reference+name to cowtool for investigation of this error" button.

Is this tool staying live with the shutdown of the award search?

Yes. I'd been considering shutting down the reward search for quite a while. I've never thought about shutting down any of the others.

... with the standard disclaimer that things could change, but I don't foresee that.

Currently undergoing maintenance. Unsure when it will be back up, but hopefully in the next hour.

Just tried viewing a couple PNRs (1 for myself; 1 for my parents), and am receiving this error:

An error occurred. Check your input and try again.
Is the maintenance still ongoing?

Not sure if just an error on your end or for your PNR's, but it worked for me to view some just now.
Took a couple clicks but loaded.

Hmm odd. Still not working for me, including a PNR that I've viewed successfully in the past.

Both PNRs have waitlisted segments if that makes a difference.
