One of the cool things you can do with the Mighty Travels Deals Dashboard

A few years later and things have evolved quickly and there is a lot more technology that deals with the ‘big data’ problem of finding airfares. Most GDS systems allow just a small amount of fare searches. They require a certain ‘look-to-book’ ratio and restrict searches to a date and airport combination. There are more than 2,000 airports with commercial flights in this world and an equal amount of airlines. The speed of light takes longer even when you are in the same city as the computer you are querying.

Key Takeaways:

  • There are more than 2,000 airports with commercial flights in this world and an equal amount of airlines. That’s about 1.5 billion airfare searches you would have to make.
  • With Mighty Travels Premium, we are looking at about 5 million fares every day and extract just about 100,000 every day that are bookable and that we consider a deal.
  • Fares are loaded into the Mighty Travels Deals Dashboard every day. The Dashboard is included in a Premium Subscription, which also gives you real-time deal alerts and hotel deals.
