First time search:

*Selected AC & CO
As they're both part of *A it makes sense they should have the same results, but that's not always the case

25 total results returned, although only 15 were unique results.
* 10 overlapped (were on AC & CO)
* 2 with AC & not CO
* 3 with CO & not AC

It would be nice if the overlaps could be grouped to show just the 15 unique results & then hover can show if it's AC, CO or AC & CO.

Thanks for the feedback.

Is there any reason why you want a grouping for all the results immediately?

Normally, even though a flight doesn't show on an airline site, you can still book it by calling the airline and feeding the specific flight numbers to the agents. In your case, if you see a flight available only from the AC site, you can still book it with CO miles. You just need to call CO to do that.

True, if the agent can't find the flight, you will need to go back to the results to review which airline site found it and figure out why, but you only need to do that for a specific flight. From a typical work-flow, it seems like you would focus on shopping by flight times or airports first, and review the finding airline sites only if the agents can't book it, and only then for a specific flight.

Also, there is some support for quickly reviewing the airline sites already. You can type in the flight number in the text filter box, and you can see right away which airline sites found it. It doesn't give you a grouping for all the flights, but presumably you would have already found the specific flights that you want to focus on.

But there are some reasons to avoid AC on a reward. So the distinction can be appreciated.

Actually, if all your want is to avoid AC flights, this can be easily done. Just type in "not AC" in the text filter box on the left, and any awards that include AC flights will be hidden.
