    After seeing this I decided to download and try using KVS for the first time. Overall the *A award availability through AC seems to work better than ANA in most cases. But I'm really confused by the error message "Complex" that I keep seeing, even for city pairs that I know have direct flights (e.g., SFO-FRA). I can understand saying "No Availability" but "Complex" is just wrong. It's not complex. Is this a bug or is there some other reason for this message so I can adjust my search to avoid it.

    Welcome to the KVS Tool!

    The actual error message in the KVS Tool is "No Award Availability/Route Too Complex", with the former being the more likely reason. Unfortunately, the [Awards/AC-StarAlliance] engine does not provide any further details in that regard:

    [KVS Availability Tool 6.2.0/Diamond - ITA: Awards/AC-StarAlliance]
    Code:
    SFO  San Francisco Intl CA US [KSFO]
    FRA  Frankfurt Metro / Intl DE = FRA HHN [EDDF]
    FRI  12 Aug 2011 | 8 Seats
    
    Carrier    Flight  From  Depart    To    Arrive    A/C  St  Availability
    ---------  ------  ----  --------  ----  --------  ---  --  ---------------------------------------
                                                                No Award Availability/Route Too Complex

    Finally bought KVS after hearing so many good things about :) Together with ITA and expedia/orbitz, I'm having so much fun pricing out all the cheap itineraries im finding!

    Thanks. It just seems to be abbreviating it for some reason, and the abbreviation varies, making me think it's a different error message.

    You can just make the KVS Tool window wider to see the complete message.
