    There are thousands of possible combinations and each each Engine has its own route construction logic.

    You can either specify a desired connection point when using [Awards/StarAlliance] or use the [Awards/AC-StarAlliance] Method (which has more extensive route construction capabilities):

    Okay, thanks. That's a big help. (I had tried specifying "via YYZ", but it threw an error indicating that wasn't valid ... or some such.)

    BTW, what does "Calendar" do on the AC-StarAlliance method? I don't see anything in the help and when you hover over the check box it just says "Request Availability Calendar if no award seats ...", but it doesn't appear do do anything different one way or the other. Should an AC availability calendar be popping up in a browser window or something?

    Perhaps, you have entered YYZ via CAI, instead of CAI via YYZ:

    [KVS Tool 7.7.4/Diamond - Awards/StarAlliance/JP-ANA-SP]
    Code:
    ORD  Chicago O'Hare Intl IL US [KORD]
    YYZ  Toronto Lester B Pearson Intl ON CA [CYYZ]
    CAI  Cairo Intl EG [HECA]
    MON  31 Aug 2015 | 2 Seats
    
    Carrier    Flight  From  Depart    To    Arrive    A/C  St  Award Availability
    ---------  ------  ----  --------  ----  --------  ---  --  ------------------
    UA         3656    ORD   08:45     YYZ   11:14     CR7  0   FS/  CS+  YS-
     -> MS     996     YYZ   12:45     CAI   06:25 +1  773  0   FS/  CS+  YS+
    
    It will show a list of dates with available awards if there aren't any on the requested date. Otherwise, it won't do anything.
