This change seems to have caused problems on Fare Explorer.

I was trying to book flights to Birmingham this weekend and even though the fares appear the system stalls after you choose the return leg fare. An error message appears saying they can't provide the fare try later.

Phoned up BA and they admitted that they had a problem. They booked the fares for us over the phone and waived the 10 phone fee.

Checked fare explorer this morning and it still isn't working.

I think this might be affecting other routes as well. Have been trying to book tickets from London-Newcastle for next weekend and the pricing has become "asymmetrical" (for want of a better word). i.e. if you put in Friday to Sunday, it shows all flights on Friday at 26. Put in Friday to Saturday, all flights on Friday are 51.
