SQM/SQD Cowculator and its source code

canadiancow's TODO list:
  • SAS Go Light fares
  • Basic economy on any airline other than AC (is it just need a fare basis that ends in GT?)
  • Ineligible codeshares, like EY-marketed, EY-operated, AC-ticketed

Adam Smith's TODO list:
  • Add earning for VA
  • Check earning rates for AC basic economy

Earning for Gulf Air has been added.

I'm still going to do VA at some point, but given that it's a bit tricky and there aren't likely a lot of AC flyers on these days, it's not top priority.

Thanks for sharing

It will take a while before we're able to build out as deep a database as we had before the switchover, but hopefully with the contributions of many FTers, we'll get it there.

Maybe I'll take a stab at it somewhere between my HOA meeting and dinner.

Cool, thanks. And yes, that makes YUL-BRU 3447

Thanks

Unfortunately the trend has been fairly consistent that AC is awarding slightly fewer miles.

LX LHR-ZRH earned me 245 in P
LX ZRH-BER earned me 202 in P

This matched what was expected, but we can't draw any conclusions because it's only 50%.

Hey all,

First off wanted to thank the creators of the calculator. Very much appreciated and suspect that this tool will become a very regular part of my travel planning.

I'm a regular flyer between YYZ-YVR and have been noticing that while flying in Economy Standard (either as Class K or T), I'm only being credited 519 SQM (25% of the total mileage) instead of the 1038 SQM as outputted in the calculator and the 50% that the Air Canada website list. However, when I'm flying Flex (Q) I'm actually being credited both the expected (from the AC website chart) and the calculator value of 2076 SQM. Have I misunderstood the mileage that I'm supposed to be credited or is this a fault with the calculator?


Economy Standard - Class T

There's some recent discussion about this over in Missing / incorrect flight activity. I'm actually unclear myself whether the change to 50% accrual for Standard fares actually happened this year.

Thanks. Got in contact with a Air Canada agent... 50% for standard that's not domestic. sad.

Yeah, that's the same earning rate as before. There was some indication that it would be standardized to 50% for all Standard fares in 2021, but it looks like that didn't happen.

( @TTC900Rocket is totally crushing it at this game for the time being )
Sorry, missed this! YEG-YVR is 753 at the moment on 150% fare so that's in line with what was posted earlier.

DFW-DEN is 960 on the UA/AC codeshare.

Don't ask but UA>AA on that route.
