About the Developer was developed by a Toronto web development agency. The idea was triggered by our own frustration when trying to book flights with our frequent flyer miles. Specifically, we were trying to book a flight on points from Zurich to Dar es Salaam. Our own Star Alliance frequent flyer program was going to charge 70,000 miles for a round-trip economy seat for this route. Because the routing seemed somewhat absurd (3 connections) we checked another Star Alliance program, and that one only charged 40,000 miles! This was odd, but on further investigation there seem to be some significant discrepancies on many routes, especially where the zoning is handled differently by each frequent flyer program.

We thought it would be great to have a tool that would allow us to look up any flight rewards and compare. We were surprised that we could not find such a tool so we decided to build our own. has been online since December 2011.

The calculator is used to compare rates between programs or even just to calculate rates for specific programs. Many of the frequent flyer programs included in the engine do not have their own rates calculator. Our visitors typically are members of various programs and consult the site to see which program may be most advantageous for their needs before they book a flight. The engine is essentially language-agnostic as the results mainly consist of numbers; about 45% of the visits are from non-English speaking users.


The calculator and comparison tool has been reviewed by many users from different parts of the world, see what people think:
