BA Update (please read)

Quite a number of you have reported that BA searches have been failing. What seems to be happening is that the first search succeeds and all subsequent attempts to get to the award flight search page fails. If you log out and log back in again, this sequence continues with a successful first search and errors out on the next one.This is happening for me as well and as such I’ve made a change to automatically log out and back in again if the app Continue reading →

QF Update

A couple of people mentioned that QF was failing to log in. This has been fixed in v0.0.0.84. It may be a little brittle at the moment so if a search fails, please try again. Another small update: NH searches that include BKK were failing. That has also been fixed. [download] or if you’ve installed the app, the update will be pushed to you in a few hours.

New carrier: AF/KL (beta)

I was searching for some intra-Europe awards a few days ago and I realized that I had KL some miles from a while ago. So as of v0.0.0.82 KL/AF is a new carrier option.

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 Continue reading →

Sync user accounts

I’ve been working on a bunch of different computers recently and was getting tired of entering in my user account information each time. So as of version, you can now sync your user accounts across computers, tied to the Google account logged in to Chrome. This is completely optional so if you don’t want to do it, just don’t click on the “Sync User Accounts” or “Retrieve Synced User Accounts” buttons and nothing will change – your user account information will only be saved locally.

Some updates

Gateway Search replacement Gateway search has now been replaced with the ability to run multi-origin or multi-destination searches on all carriers from the regular search screen. Note: if you have saved gateway searches, they won’t work anymore. You can recreate the search using the new multi origin/destination search and save that instead.   Restrictive/Inclusive filters One piece of feedback that I’ve received is for the filters to be restrictive to be able to avoid specific airlines, be it for personal preference or to avoid fuel surcharges and Continue reading →
