What is the ITA Matrix? What is BookwithMatrix?

- the list goes on and on
If you’re interested in learning more about the level of complexity that you can you incorporate into your itineraries check out flyerguide.com and also a great series of articles written by Travel Codex
The biggest complaint with the ITA Matrix is the lack of a booking tool
Lifehacker Australia released an article this past weekend that highlighted a cool website that allows you to book ITA Matrix itineraries, BookWithMatrix.com
I tried it out on a few Itineraries and it worked like a charm:
I’m looking to do a mileage run before American devalues on August 1st. It would also give a great opportunity to fly the 767-300 domestically between Lax and Miami. At one point this year you could route through NYC on the A321T for about this same price and net 19k EQM…This routing gets between 14k and 15.5k and 20k-25k RDM.
- Here’s LAX-PTY with
- specified American Airlines only
- flight only on 767, 737, or A321T
- business class+
