It's actually connected through the dates you plug in and tells you when there's an opening? 
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

I don't understand why you are hijacking the OPs thread about the AwardHacker tool to discuss another tool, perhaps you should move your discussion to the ExpertFlyer thread.

v1.2:
  • 2016.07.14 updated.
  • We added support to the following frequent flyer programs:
    • Southwest Airlines (WN) Rapid Rewards (U.S. domestic only)
    • Virgin America (VX) Elevate (Partners only)
  • Note that Southwest Airlines (WN) uses price-based award chart. The number of miles we show here is a lower limit (sale offers are not included). If you want to redeem for a award ticket close to the date of departure, or you want an award ticket on peak seasons, then more miles are required because of the increase of the ticket price.

So you're system now knows and checks the underlying price of WN tickets? Nice.

Maybe, but it would be nicer if the OT weren't lauding a competing site.

AwardHacker, your site is AWESOME, clear, easy to use (for mileage beginners like me), and efficient!
Looking forward to seeing you incorporate the mileage mavens' wishlists making your tool the goto site.
