    Check out http://cwsi.net/.

    It says that it

    Our mission is to provide best in-class information and capabilities for frequent flyers. We offer charts and tools to help frequent flyers understand air fare codes, upgrade priority, airline miles calculations, airline routes, and more.​

    There is nothing to join, nothing to buy and I am not affiliated with site. Found it looking to see what Delta S class was.

    100% US centric for most information.
    Did not know about FCO as an airport for instance. Only some US based airlines.

    May be useful if you fly those airlines in the USA.

    Appreciate that, but nothing I cannot get from the AC website. Like I said , likely more useful for those flying on those US airlines and airport pairs in the USA. I am sure it will be useful then. Just not for international travel :)

    Regardless, thanks for posting. Free tools are always good to know about. :)

    It's basically an altruistic effort by a single frequent flier, and he provides a lot of useful info. (well, 99.6% altruistic- he does, for example, have an affiliate link to the DL web site, and he is completely transparent about that).

    There is an e-mail contact on the site, I've sent him some updates on DL fare buckets which he has promptly included. He is sometimes on TOBB, he joined here in April but only posted one time and his profile shows he hasn't been back in many months. :(

    email link most of the way down the DL fare chart page.
    http://www.cwsi.net/delta.htm

    I realize this isn't run by the same person I was thinking of. (it's been a while since I contacted him last). The other person is Ben Edelman, who has some related pages at http://www.benedelman.org/travel/ including the DL seat maps, and Ben is on TOBB and posted once here.

    Hey guys, Rick from CWSI.net. I will gladly put a link up on my site for milepoint.com (long time lurker, never poster). I am one man show, longtime frequent flyer on delta (you can probably tell based on all the tools for DL). I do have affiliate links and ads because I want information to be free but I also have costs to take care of. please feel free to contact me via PM or Rick at CWSI dot net. Happy holidays!

    Indeed an AC Milion Miler, but I normally use EF for my needs so do not make any changes for me unless others would find it of use .. :)

    The data is still horribly wrong for the CO and UA pages. Depending on that site to explain what the fare classes are is way too risky. It might be right or it might not be. And in far too many cases it is the latter.

    Good to see you here Rick.

    Wondering Aramean noted

    CO and UA are tough to fathom right now, but if you are able to update them, let us know.
