Little by Little

Well we've been quiet over the last month, but don't just think we've been all travel and no work (that's for you to do). No, No, we've been up to our ears squashing bugs, strategizing and generally preparing for a big 'ole ramp up this summer.

We've got some crazy stuff coming up, but as they say "live in the present", so today we are unleashing a small but cool addition: a new ajax front end for our flight search screen. Of course you don't have to know anything about our friend ajax, just know that he's a pretty cool guy and he's helping to makes things more 'user friendly'. What that means for the flight search screen is we now check on the fly the citys or airports you are typing to make sure you have all your ducks in a row. We'll check to make sure the airports are 'valid' to fly to, let you know if you have a choice between multiple airports in a city, and also have you clarify if there are multiple cities with same name. Of course this type of data handling gobbledygook has always been done, our friend ajax just makes it all seamless, no waiting to start the search, no page reloading, just smooth handling. And we like smooth..
