someday in the future. trust me on that

hah! good question, won't say too much behind the scene story, but what I can say for now

1 There should be no more(many things changed in the past 3 months, without being expected though)
2 you will see the result availability/speed/program partners very different one site to another soon, if you look now, it is already big difference. Hint: look on result and speed from UA/AC/KL(AF)/VS/QF, and total number of flights on the left

And incidentally, you might think having Qantas or AA would suffice but it's really not the same. There are often EI flights available on Avios that are not listed on BA's site or the other partners. And there are often connections offered on BA that aren't on Avios (though with outrageous fees so...)

I have tried this and it's been great. I particular like the fact that it doesn't restrict any dates into the future, and it has a good multidate search function, which is always handy.
Wondering what is the setting it apart from other award search tools like seat.aero, etc. Want to make sure I am taking full advantage of it.

No, I never thought having AA or QF is enough, it is one of primary reason of building this tool as partner no longer sharing inventory like it used to be 20-15-10-5 years ago. That is also reason why, we only show real time result, not assuming if A has seats, you can use B to redeem
so stay tuned for Avios

seat.aero and us are different type of product, they are more like explore function of airfare search site. You don't know, where and when you are going, but want to go selected destinations

US is just a real time search all programs all routes, you know where are you going, hah

I believe they have point-to-point search as well but the date range is limited.

Very odd results. Searching one-way, First class. SJD - ALB on June 8th, 2024
Only shows Aeromexico and Delta airlines. Nothing for UA/AA, etc.

Because UA/AA coded as Business for this route, only Delta coded as mixed of F/C, so if you search F only, then only delta shows

Excellent tool, have been using it a lot. The alerts helped me find 2 J flights to Asia so far.

Any chance of adding flights bookable using ANA miles? I know they have a RT requirement to book, but being able to see individual flights without going to their convoluted website would be very helpful.

Thanks for loving us, glad to hear we work out well for your Asia trip! To tell you the truth, for ANA, no, not until they can support one way. I can not think of any other program still has R/T requirement, hah
