This is a tool to check rates, not availability.

Rates change often and it doesn't really help if not available unless it's a general info. Which is as good as a wiki

An easy searchable Wiki/database. That's about it.

Rates don't really change often and when they do the attempt to update it.
If this is as good as a wiki than I take it you never really searched for award availability.

The rates are always the same until an airline changes them, I'm not sure what you're looking for in a date field.

Availability.. AA might be a great value on a specific route, but if there's no availability with them or any of their partners when you need to travel, it doesn't really matter.

A free service is not gonna search availability for you.
Yes, you are right, what I actually mean is it is impossible to do it for free...
