For the expert user ...

Expert users no longer need to wait to select an option from the auto-complete if they know their airports' IATA codes.

You can now punch in an airport's IATA code and tab right away without selecting the airport from the auto-complete options. This will accelerate data entry for those who are familiar with the codes.

Note: This only works for the 3-letter airport codes; if you are uncertain about a code just keep typing and select from the auto-complete options.

Filter by Program

The filtering by program is now available on all searches. If you don't want to compare all programs for a given route you can personalize the calculation by selecting only the programs that you are interested in.

Simply create a list of programs by selecting them from the drop-down list. The calculator will then only check the programs you have indicated. This will yield more relevant results and it will also speed up the calculations.

Filtering by Program in Beta

If you start a search from the sidebar (like on the right of this page) you can now filter your calculations by programs. Select as many or as few programs as you wish in order to generate customized calculations for the destinations and programs you are interested in.

Not only does this give you a more relevant report, but the calculations are much quicker than when the engine needs to churn through all programs!

Comparisons across all programs are still by possible if you don't explicitly select any programs.

This feature will be promoted to the main search interface soon.

Improved Auto-Complete

The auto-complete now looks up nothing but airport codes if you enter exactly three characters in the "from" and "to" fields, i.e. entering "FRA" will now only show Frankfurt.

If you keep typing then the auto-complete search is expanded to city name, airport name and country name. This will make finding airports a lot easier especially if you know the airport code, but you can still call up longer lists if you are unsure of an airport's code.
