FlySpy – pick the cheapest dates/times/airports, interactively
I give it a departure city and a destination city and optionally a departure date and length of stay. The search result, which returns very quickly, will present me with a graph of flight prices over the next 30 days so that I can quickly look at which days are the cheapest to fly. To book a flight I just click on the point in the graph. Simple. …. in very little time I can find the best day to fly out, the best price and also the best destination.
This is great! The cycle of entering new dates/airports/times over and over, waiting for the airline site or expedia or orbitz to respsond, slooooowly, hoping for a better price, is brutal. I’m glad someone is finally going to give us a visualization of that data!!

FlySpy, make sure you invite information aesthetics when you have an alpha – they’ll eat it up!
