I use MileCalc to get the distance between cities. It is usually within a handful of miles that actually posts to AS. You can enter your itinerary for a simple one-way/return but it also handles complex itineraries with open jaws or circle trips. Additionally, it now has provisions specifically for AS to add COS and Elite Tier and will tally the RDM based on those parameters.

The only thing it doesn't do is allow for mixed-cabin/fare bucket itineraries. The parameters apply to the entire itinerary where application on a per segment basis would yield accurate results, hence why I built my own spreadsheet (as seen upthread) to accommodate these itineraries.
