It isn't a "tool" so much as the ANA website for award booking. Yes, you need to open an account to use it. Make sure you use a valid address as if the welcome packet gets returned to sender they close the account.

I'm having a related problem with the ANA site. I can get into my account fine, and I can find non-ANA routes using the work-around. But the availability listed for these routes is horrible. I can find much better options just using the CO site, and I know that shouldn't be the case. What am I doing wrong? Searching between SFO & LIM next January.

If these are the actual airport codes you are putting in then this:

LIM doesn't have a lot of *A service so you're basically going to need to search for SFO-IAH/EWR and then IAH/EWR-LIM. And if the points are in CO or UA then you should use co.com and search for connections in PTY.

The whole routing I'm looking at doing is CLE-LIM-SFO. Now comparing the CLE-LIM leg:

On CO.com I get all sorts of options for the connection including EWR, LGA, YYZ, IAH, and a bunch with two connections (it maxes out the 50-result search limit).

On ANA I get four results with include EWR, LGA, and YYZ. IAH isn't listed at all.

With ANA do I need do search for single segments at a time, rather than flights that include a connection? Maybe I am expecting the tool to do too much.

Also thanks for the tip on COPA, I'm definitely looking at that option too. They are CO miles that I'm using.

I haven't been able to get this to work for the last few months. I get the invalid session error, and I've tried logging in and out a few times. I have the latest Greasemonkey script and have tried in Chrome and Firefox.

Anybody have success with this lately?
