    Hmmm on second thought, it seems to be throwing an error in Chrome for me when I try to select a flight:

    “We’re sorry, but continental.com was unable to complete your request due to a technical problem.
    Please try later or call 1-800-300-1547 for assistance.”

    When I disable your extension, the site works fine again.

    How about XN inventory? As an elite, it is just (if not more important to me) than X inventory. Great stuff though!

    United has had this feature for as long as I can remember, it’s good to see something from UA that will stick around through the merger.

    I have always had the inventory list show up for both award searches and standard revenue searches for UA. Haven’t tried out the CO site yet, but I figure it can’t be better than the UA version. Maybe I misunderstood your post, but it sounded like you found the UA expert mode to only show inventory on award searches, so if I misunderstood, sorry about that.
