    Okay so how do I find an MPM via ExpertFlyer?

    Is a premium Subscription Required?

    As you know, I do not know :) There is an EF forum here on MP, but it almost seems automated rather than actually supported by a real person?

    You could try here. I too am an EF user and would like to know.

    To view MPM on Expert Flyer - search for a fare (usually the less restrictive fares will have MPM - lower priced fares are more likely route based). On the far right side select "view routing" symbol. At the bottom of the routing rules you will see the MPM if applicable for that fare.

    A premium plan subscription is required for viewing fares (and rules)

    If your (trial?) subscription doesn't include what YVR-Flyer described, I can look up some MPMs for you (albeit using KVS Tool).

    I'm going to subscribe to one of these. Im leaning towards KVS now though.

    There is value in it ... even if it's possible to get at all the yourself, unless you value your own time at approximately zero, a subscription to one of the tools makes a ton of sense.

    It does, the 5-day trial is a regular Premium account that's just free for 5 days, feel free to try it out.

    I paid for the premium version already, just need to know how to use it.

    Thanks for the lookup offer though, could you tell me exactly how you would do it?

    In my experience, flights with published routings don't show MPM in the fare rules. What I've been doing is searching city pairs in EF using the airline code YY which shows IATA non-airline specific fares. Those show MPM only for all city pairs where an MPM is published.

    My understanding is that MPM is published by the IATA and each airline chooses whether you can exceed MPM and by how much.

    As I recall, Aeroplan allows you to exceed it by 5% ... someone will surely correct me if I remember wrongly, though!

    I had also read this.


    Haven't had a chance to play around with it again since the other day. Thanks for the info though!
