What time zone is the scheduled search based ?
Do you have any idea what time ANA updates ?

Schedule is EST-based. Not sure when ANA updates; I would *figure* it's during the day in Japan, though. Btw, the scheduled search uses Aeroplan, not ANA (at least for now). Might add that as a premium feature, not sure.

Thanks.

Btw, it looks like registration is broken in IE8. If you are using that browser, either try using another one, or perhaps "Compatibility Mode" - see if that helps.

Also ANA +/- 1/2 day is broken at the moment, working on a fix.

Good Job and Thanks!
Is there a possibility to include TATL routing from USA to SE Asia?

Unfortunately, that would be hard without embarking on a wholesale rewrite of the tool to source published routings la KVS and superimposing them on availabilities. Doable? Totally. But since it's a hobby first and foremost, time is unlikely to allow

Woohoo! Multi-day searching on ANA is now fixed.

Would it be difficult put a drop down menu box for selecting the month instead of having to click through to reach the distant months ?

It's actually fairly easy. The only problem is that so far I tried a few different calendars, and someone complained about every and each one of them So I'm not sure. If there is consensus, I can change it to any of the ones on the http://dev.jtsage.com/jQM-DateBox/ page - up on the right, under "Mode Demos". Currently, if you access the page with a mobile device, you get a different calendar, a more finger-suitable one.

Pseudo Nim,
Thanks for your reply. My previous post is merely a suggestion.
Your program is quite useful & most elegant in it's simplicity. Keep up the good work, and thanks again.

All suggestions are appreciated I am actually considering putting this as an option on the settings page - everyone can have their own calendar! hehe.

Welp, for what it's worth, I'm embarking on the premium featureset that I'll want to charge a few bucks for. What's available right now won't change - so if you like it as is, go ahead and keep using it. But I'll add a few premium features that some people may appreciate. For now, only three, but sorta important ones:

- hourly search frequency (instead of once a day)
- can choose whether to use Aeroplan or ANA for scheduled searches (or both, really) - since results do differ sometimes.
- increased number of watchlist items

More to come as I think of them. For now I don't have any method of actually paying for a membership (I kind of focussed on getting features up instead of a way for paying for them - I got my priorities straight ) but if you want this membership, I figure it should be around 9.95 a month - seems competitive with the other offers out there - please msg me and we'll sort something out.

It was initially designed for iPhone / iPad (since I wanted it for myself on the go) so I do my best to maintain compatibility
