Every 5 days you're going to make yourself a new EF account? And once you have EF, you can just search on there...
It works with the free EF account as well.

I think you all mean FT as in Flyertalk, and not EF as in expert flyer which is sort of a competing service

Lol
Didn't realize. My point still stands: don't expect to get a top-quality award search site for free. (And even the paid ones aren't so top notch).

LAX-JFK is showing 15K RT on M&M is that correct? On the award chart it shows 25K

an updated award chart would be great - LAX-TLV comes up with no results - are there plans for adding ELAL?

Also a nice feature may be to add conversion from MR UR and TYP

Hey all, just wanted to drop in a quick update on some new features we’ve deployed to AwardAce. You can now filter by individual programs and by transferable partners (Amex, Chase and etc). Each program now has some transfer partner info on the top right corner of the rate cards.

Example link: http://www.awardace.com/redemptions/102760900/JFK-SFO?transfer_partners=amex,citi

We’ve also added support for four new programs: SKYPASS, Enrich, LifeMiles and Lotusmiles.

Hope this keeps some of you intrigued as we continue to work on one-stop pricing! Please let us know if you have more feedback.

@Yehuda and Yose – thanks for the heads up. We’ve corrected that to 25K now.

htg123 – AwardAce isn’t perfect, but neither is the competition :-). Give us a little time and we’ll win you over.

rcarentals – We’re focusing on alliance airlines first. Once we bring a few more of those airlines on board, we can move onto the AS, EY and LY of the world.

I use them as well, but always verify if s/t seems too good to be true.

We’re excited to let you all know that AwardAce now supports both direct and one-stop routing. Take the below query for instance, which summarizes JAL's various oneworld partners that can be used to fly from New York to Bangkok. Combined with the advanced filtering functionality that we just released, this feature should make trip planning a much more enjoyable experience.

Hey DD – we've released a bunch of new features over the past few months that we think y'all will find useful:
  • Program Guide – an extensive guide covering redeeming, earning and other key info across 63 loyalty programs
  • Discover – our optimization tool that helps you find the best ways to use your points, given a program, origin and cabin (currently indexing rates for 15 programs)
  • Pricing Tool – our original feature, now improved and currently supporting non-alliance partners (like AS on Executive Club/AAdvantage) and both one-stop/round-trip routings
Try it out for yourself and let us know what you think!

Just searched JFK-VIE and within the AC/UA program OS doesn't even show up as an option. Also, are you planning to just show available classes for certain airlines?

Example: Turkish/Brussels/LOT/Austrian (when it is added) don't fly F but list a value for F. Would it not make more sense to take the value out so as to not indicate that there is F to be head with those?

Also, do you plan to add the SQ program to this? Would be very good to have that in there.
Work hard, Play harder!

@benjie1305 Thanks for reporting that! We're made a change to our database and OS flights should now be reappearing.

http://www.awardace.com/redemptions/6e5446c96e/JFK-VIE

Re: hiding airlines that don't fly F, that's a great idea and definitely something we'll get to. We do plan to add SQ and AS programs in the near future. Any other programs that we should consider while we're at it?
