Where did you see a report of a member with 100 miles that can access ANA without the workaround?

how do you do the workaround?
Just merged this with the old thread, read post 1 for a workaround.

Here's another workaround from FT's sbm12 that appears to work great for me!
Install Greasemonkey for Firefox and restart your browser
Install this Greasemonkey script
Go to ANA here
Then click award reservation in the top left corner, login, and you should see Star Alliance search just like before they broke it!


Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Another report from 2 days ago confirming 200 points was enough (for now)

The greasemonkey workaround works like a charm, hopefully they won't shut it off.

KVS is still working with 1 point so that's good.

The KVS Tool is not affected by the recent changes to the ANA website, so KVS Tool members can continue to enjoy access to Star Alliance Award Availability, even if they have 0 miles in their ANA accounts.

Chaikel, that's not a very nice welcome to KVS.

Here and on FT, they don't seem to cut you slack lately.

Don't worry, its generally a friendly place here.

They are all excited about the dansdeal special you are going to give us.

 yet there are those on DD that actually go ahead and pay for the KVS tool, I think it offers more then just Award Seat availablilty, so it might depend just what a person wants out of it to see if its worth paying for it.. After all alot of folks on FT pay for it as well and they too know very well what you do

 KVS Welcome aboard hopefully this wont be your only post, nor just posts trying to get people to sign up for yur site

True, however I wish they had a free version, like awardwallet and others, for casual awardies

if its ease of handling makes you search more (often), and you find 1 good deal, it paid off.

Thanks for the welcome, SuperFlyer & steve2!

Indeed, easy access to award availability is just one of the many KVS Tool features and we were pleased to learn that there are such enthusiastic DD-ers among the KVS Tool members:

KVS is the single greatest invention since Kosher Hot Dogs at Yankee Stadium :)

 no probs hopefully all your posts wont simply be trying to get yourself new members

btw just for the record Im not a KVS member nor have I ever been. Dont like paying for something that can be handled w/o having to pay, it might take me alittle longer but I get it done nontheless

 just its probably a great tool for those w/o Patience or dont know how to find what they need to w/o it and havent been in this game for the 30+ yrs that I have

Yo, Steve2, I happen to have pretty much patience, and yes, I can get all the results from kvs w/o kvs, buts way more efficient, so for the person needing it sporadically, its not needed (if he knows what's he's doing), but otherwise I'd be busy much longer everyday, to finally obtain the same result.

If someone is 10+ or 60+ years in the game, it doesn't make a difference anymore, as so many things change so often.

 theres a big difference if a person is in the biz of selling tkts then if they travel on their own and have the time to play with things

If aperson is billing out by the hour then even for their own use it might pay to have KVS to save them the time thats needed, but if they have all the time in the world then it might be a waste for them to get KVS
