I posted last week about the new Avios Flight Finder app. This is an iPhone / iPad app which can show you, impressively quickly, reward flight availability on British Airways flights.
This app is not available for Android, nor is it available to non-UK iOS users. It also isn’t usable by anyone who doesn’t have a smart phone.
Head for Points reader Tim has developed a simple website which accesses the same database used for the Avios Flight Finder app.
Amazingly, this bit of software is even quicker than the Avios Flight Finder app – because it immediately shows you full availability for the next 355 days!
Like the Avios Flight Finder it cannot handle connections. It also does not show oneworld partner airlines. The main use of this site should therefore be to check availability when you want to use an Amex 2-4-1 voucher – if you are not using a 2-4-1 voucher you should use ba.com instead as it will show you Qatar, Finnair, Royal Jordanian, airberlin, American, US Airways etc etc as well.
Remember that avios.com has better European economy reward availability than ba.com. For Club Europe, World Traveller, World Traveller Plus, Club World and First it should match what is available on ba.com. Sometimes avios.com does not fully match ba.com but no-one has ever worked out why ….
