Just a reminder to all existing users of the [KVS Availability Tool] who may still be using outdated versions (i.e. earlier than V1.4.2) to upgrade.

BTW, here is a sneak preview of what's coming-up in the next version which is due to be released very soon:
  • PNR/Itinerary Retrieval Manager: Allows you to save a list of your Itineraries/PNRs for easy reference and 1-click web-based retrieval. Supports all 4 major GDS systems: Amadeus, Sabre/Abacus, Galileo/Apollo, and Worldspan.

If anyone can give me any tips, I'd really appreciate it. I don't think I'm doing my searches correctly

Goal: Some routing from CDG-LAX on AF or DL (or KL) w/DL miles in coach.

I 'think' I am supposed to be looking for X for AF, N for DL, and W for KL, but as I never see any -- maybe that's wrong

Of the several options on KVS, I still can't determine which is best for my inquiry. Worldspan, apollo, etc....

I am not clear if I am supposed to get better results if I do inquiries with the whole flight or just various segments.

I just can't seem to find anything at all, whether it's for my dates next June or even in the middle of January.

Thanks

If you're looking for awards flights (= W on KL), you might find a few tips in this thread
