Any idea, or is it even possible to have a matrix style display, a "one stop shop" website made for multiple airlines frequent flier availability? I know if I have 50,000 miles and need 60,000 in a few airlines I would transfer 10,000 miles from a credit card program like American Express.
Could a website be made to have a matrix like display for multiple airlines frequent flyer programs if you put in your departure city/date and arrival city/date like a Travelocity, Orbitz etc but with miles? Seems like a good idea to me! -Matt in KITH

What would be the point of just seeing the availability. You would not be able to book thru one of those sites. Miles can only be used direct with the airline

Just go to the airlines site. Most have that, i know BA does.

In fact very few airlines have calender-based redemption availability. BA does, and so does LH. I don't know of any others.

A calender matrix ? i.e. 30 or 60 days ? I'm surprised.

A website like Kayak would be nice and would not be too hard to create, but you would only be shown availability. You would not be able to actually book it.

On CX you can look up weekly. Not that it's much fun, all premium comes back unavailableanyway, available is 2x mileage Y...

The BA system is excellent. So is their Z/U availability.

United does and has a similar system to Travelocity, where they will bring up a calendar with available dates. The down side is that you can't book a STAR flight on United.bomb, only United/United Express/Ted. You have to get on the phone for a STAR award.
