In my perfect world, the current version of this fantastic award engine would be free and the future version with every airport served by SA would be via a paid membership. I wonder if there is a way to stop brokers from eating up all our award space with the $89 version?

A big thank you to the OP for this, most helpful to save some time trying to go through various city pairs to get an indication of what may be available.

Thanks, added. Will add NRT/HND<->India soon as well. A lot of the other suggestions aren't direct routes, which I can't easily add without clogging up the displayed availability. Maybe in the future it will be possible, but the # of routes with just direct availability is already high.

Also, what is up with the lack of LH F? I hope it is not just my tool broken, seems there is quite a shortage.

Is SA = Singapore Airlines? I wonder if there is even realistic availability for them on LifeMiles... I did snag SIN/JFK via Alaska miles last minute a few months ago, but feels unlikely these days.

As i liked the tool in the first 10 seconds, i regret it by now.
Seats fly away within seconds through the alert function. Almost every first seat is gone. So are some some routes.
This is - sorry - to easy for anybody right now. this may be good in the first for Lifemiles itself, but will break it all.

I think it is just summer travel demand appearing at the same time as I released my tool. It is not that popular (although I am flattered), only a few alerts per day are firing at all, so it’s not like 100 people have alerts for one F route or anything.

Just makes it more obvious that either LH is withholding, or has already sold a lot of capacity lately.

Hi,

yes, i just re-checkd. LH F is open in T-14 on sevarel flights on Miles and more. So they pulled the inventory from Lifemiles or even star alliance

Great tool, thank you so much for making it!

Would it be possible to show the airlines for which there is availability or allow filtering by airlines (or both)? It would be great to have it shown as text in the results (not as an icon or in the tooltip) so that I can use my browser's "find text in page" function on it.

Thanks! I added this data to the tooltip for now. I know it is not exactly what you wanted, but I am not sure it makes sense to add it to the table for now. In the future, I might be able to add another sort field for airlines, like there is right now for regions.

Sorry, my bad.

For some reason probably related to the bilateral contract between Alaska Airlines and Singapore Airlines, Alaska has different award space availability for SQ flights than Star Alliances airlines in general get for SQ flights.

I would find it useful if you could IAD-CPH, ORD-CPH, EWR-CPH, SFO-CPH, LAX-CPH, YYZ-CPH, MIA-CPH, BOS-CPH, ORD-ARN, EWR-ARN, EWR-OSL, LAX-ARN, YYZ-ARN, MIA-ARN. Thanks.
