Yup and fixed most of the new annoying stuff. Now you can reverse route again, hoping these will be good changes.

ITA Search based upon layover times
« Reply #297 on: February 22, 2015, 12:37:25 PM »
How can I code an ITA Matrix search to show maximum layover times
or a flight with a stopover continuing on, the next day?

I'd like to stopover for up to 1-2 days en route to my final destination.

Thanks.
