this is a pretty neat tool! It'll help me save some time in determining which frequent flier program to use! Only issue I noticed is that when I put in my first city and I hit the tab button (I'm a keyboard guy, faster that way =D), the input goes away. Same thing goes with the destination. I'd actually have to hit enter and wait for the auto-complete to come up with the options before I can select. Is there a way to make it slightly more convenient by having it just use the airport code I entered in or maybe the first option?

Other than that, nifty!

This is amazing!

What would need to be done to add LAN and Qantas?

Just saw this, very cool. One suggestion would be to enable filtering or selecting only certain airlines on the Routes tab - say if I wanted to avoid BA when using AA miles because of the YQ.

I just came across this via a mention in another thread. Quite useful! I haven't played around with it much yet, but the valuable features seem to include award routings I hadn't been aware of for certain exotic destinations.

Thanks for putting it together!

This tool just saved me over $500 so I can't thank you enough!

Basically I was about to buy a KUL-CMB-KHI roundtrip flight with cash ($600ish), because surely I don't have enough Srilankan miles so why even bother trying for miles.

One quick check on this tool told me that I can have that flight for a mere 25k USAirways points (which I easily got through signup bonus).

Much love <3

Please add Delta Skymiles and it will make this tool PERFECT

I'd even go beyond this to request that you include all the SkyTeam partners if possible, or at least the major ones (such as Korean and Air France) since awards on them can be booked by transferring points from such popular programs as Chase Ultimate Rewards or American Express Membership Rewards.

Your already very useful tool will be even more so if you can manage to expand it in this way.

Regardless, thanks again for building and sharing this!
