    Ok, well hopefully I'm not skewered for posting this as a new thread.
    But here goes, I know a lot of you have insight as to what tools you use for checking inventory levels, availability, R vs I, Upgrades, etc...
    So my question is there one tool that you would say stands above the rest? Or do you find its a combination of tools? Or depends on what your researching... ie: Reward/RTW, Inventory etc...
    I myself have been using KVS the past few years and found it pretty good, but have not yet done a RTW and from what I have read and researched it seems like ANA is the best for this.
    Look forward to feedback on it.

    Thanks.[​IMG]

    I used to use KVS and moved to the web based ExpertFlyer and a couple of colleagues are now using it also.
    In the Concourse Z section on MP there are a couple of forums for both if you need information from the source.
     
    jarusoba and piqaro like this.

    I use both KVS and EF. Sometimes I use ITA.

    Thanks for the input. I haven't tried ExpertFlyer yet, I'll add that the tool box as well. [​IMG]

    I let my subscription lapse and now they sent me a welcome back code and offered me a discount. I think I will take up the offer.

    ITA and EF definitely. I've also had some fun with .bomb and expedia (booking a good multi-segment on ac.com is near impossible)
