What’s included in version 0.0.0.80

BA

A number of you have reported trouble searching with BA. This issue should now be fixed. If you still run into issues, try clearing the cache/cookies using the link shown below and running the search again.

SQ

Captcha prompt just like it currently does for BA.

AC

There was an issue where searches would sometimes hang. I think I’ve fixed the problem but if it still happens, please let me know.

Happy searching!

As always, [download] or if you’ve installed the app, the update will be pushed to you in a few hours.

    Thanks AwardFinder! The updated version seems to work for AC. It no longer hangs but I did find some strange results.

    Did a search for YUL-ZRH on 8/16/16 + 30 days and the filtered the results for nonstop only. What came back was some duplicate entries. For example:

    LX87 YUL ZRH 8/29/16 5:05 PM 8/30/16 6:20 AM Boeing 777-300
    LX87 YUL ZRH 8/29/16 5:05 PM 8/30/16 6:20 AM Boeing 777-300
    LX87 YUL ZRH 8/31/16 5:05 PM 9/1/16 6:20 AM Boeing 777-300
    LX87 YUL ZRH 8/31/16 5:05 PM 9/1/16 6:20 AM Boeing 777-300
    LX87 YUL ZRH 9/2/16 5:05 PM 9/3/16 6:20 AM Boeing 777-300
    LX87 YUL ZRH 9/2/16 5:05 PM 9/3/16 6:20 AM Boeing 777-300

    Upon further digging on Aeroplan.com, it looks like the second 8/29/16 should have been 8/30/16, the first 8/31/16 should have been 8/30/16 and the second 9/2/16 was a phantom result.

    Not sure why it parsed this way but there seems be an error somewhere. Thanks

    Looks like the error continues to happen for AC searches:

    AC9 YYC NRT 8/24/16 1:00 PM 8/25/16 2:20 PM 788
    AC9 YYC NRT 8/24/16 1:00 PM 8/25/16 2:20 PM 788
    AC9 YYC NRT 8/26/16 1:00 PM 8/27/16 2:20 PM 788
    AC9 YYC NRT 8/26/16 1:00 PM 8/27/16 2:20 PM 788
    AC9 YYC NRT 8/28/16 1:00 PM 8/29/16 2:20 PM 788
    AC9 YYC NRT 8/28/16 1:00 PM 8/29/16 2:20 PM 788
    AC9 YYC NRT 8/30/16 1:00 PM 8/31/16 2:20 PM 788
    AC9 YYC NRT 8/30/16 1:00 PM 8/31/16 2:20 PM 788

    For some reason the results are duplicated and when I look deeper, it looks like the second date in the duplicate is for the following day.

    Any chance you can look into this please?

      So it looks like the first search succeeds and when it navigates to the search page again, it errors out. This seems to be happening when I run a search manually through a browser. I tried Chrome/FF/IE so I’m not sure what I can do here. One workaround is to only run one search at a time and click on the “Clear cache/cookies” button when it errors out.

    I am having issues with BA search as well. This is the error message that keeps coming up. “Sorry, there seems to be a technical problem. Please try again in a few minutes, and please contact us if it still doesn’t work. We apologise for the inconvenience.”. I have tried uninstalling/reinstalling the app, turning debug on, clearing cache/cookies and I still get the same error.

    It seems to work fine when I run a manual search on the BA website through a browser. Do you have any other solutions? Thanks.

      Sorry, I don’t have any other solutions. If I run a search manually and click on the “Start again” button at the bottom of the page, it errors out. Going through the main members page->spending avios->book a reward flight also errors out on me so I don’t really know what to do about that.
