Instruction ExpertFlyer route cruncher

ExpertFlyer is a (paid) tool on the Internet. It can be used to find all kind information related to airline ticket. You can search for (the number of) available seats in each bookingclass on a specific airline/route. Another important feature of ExpertFlyer is the option to show the routing rules of each fare.


The route information can be used for different purposes. From a frequent flyer/travel hacker perspective, this information is valuable to see what routings are available. Based on the routings available its possible to calculate which route earns the most in either Flying Blue Experience Points or frequent flyer milse.

Note: The number of miles displayed is the total great circle distance between all city-pairs within the route. The number is not related to the amount of miles you will earn in a certain frequent flyer program.
