This is incredible. Hope we all don't crash the system. I guess we should all be conservative in our use of this new tool. I only plan to use it to plan out trips for upgrades. Won't bother using it just to check loads.

Thanks again KVS ^

Can you save a registration code for me? :D

My Thinkpad is getting serviced now and I don't want to install anything on the current computer as it's not mine.

Job well done based on the screenshot! ^

Thank you KVS for making it available. But, when I click on the hyperlink that is on your hosting site to download the zip file nothing happens. Any help is appreciated.

Try a different browser or check your browser settings and ensure that "Referrer Logging" option is enabled (exact wording will differ depending on the browser you are using).

Hey thanks for the program

Send it to me via a private FT message and I will send you back your registration code.

Just a few words about it:
  • Only classes available through the Galileo GDS will be shown
  • The tool is quite intelligent when it comes to interpreting the input data
  • The current version does not support the use of Proxy servers
  • If flight connections are listed incorrectly, make sure that the 1st class in your list is valid on all segments, i.e. enter YFC instead of FCY
Feel free to post your comments in this thread.
As always, standard disclaimers apply and no liability is accepted whatsoever.

Can you send me the operational cde follwing download...thanks for the program...very helpful....

How is this availability tool similar or different from the:

Since the German "aeroplan" tool became inaccessible to the general FT audience, I have generally used AMEX ITN, for seat availability. I have not needed to look for award availability, as a SE from the beginning of this year, I can over come capacity controls (ie instant KKs).

How is the New KVS tool compare with ITN, or the above Sabre tool, in terms of revenue classes? Neither the Sabre tool nor ITN give award seat availability, the only tool to look for D or W seats is the above sabre tool?

The German tool always seems to be down when I go to check the availablity for a flight. I'm still waiting on you KVS for my code. Please send me it ASAP.
