    Awesome! Is it possible to have an option to search for a range of dates? That would make it easier to find something from their limited availability.

    A range of dates is a bit more complicated as it would have to run an independent query for each date and then try to organize the results into some sort of calendar-related grid. In addition to being potentially slow it would be way more complicated to program. I’m somewhat busy working on proting some of these apps to mobile devices so not high on the priority list, but I’ll keep it in mind.

    […] even the hold time was reasonable this morning (< 5 minutes). As a minor aside, I briefly had a means to search award availability online but the carrier has apparently removed it from the GDSes. […]

    I’d like to know what these codes mean – inventory shows R0 Y7 E7 K7 H7 Q7 B7 L7 V0 M0 O0 U0 S0 P0

    The codes represent the number of seats for sale in each of the various fare buckets. Y7 means there are at least 7 seats for sale in the Y bucket – full priced coach – for example.

    You do NOT add them going across. The above doesn’t necessarily mean that there ar 49 seats for sale.

    And you have to meet the fare rules (advance purchase, minimum stay, etc.) in order to buy a ticket in a particular class. So just because there is an L fare published and inventory in the L bucket doesn’t mean that you can buy an L seat in general.
