Canadians, especially those of us who live in Charlottetown, have been excited about JetsGo lately. It’s a new airline which will hopefully provide less expensive airfare intra-Canadian (and a few US) locations.
Their website, lets you shop around for flights by feeding it an origin, destination, and preferred departure time. This is great to. I like being able to get quotes right away and enjoy shopping around a bit.
But my frustration comes from a single part of the interface that could easily be fixed. If there is no flight available the day you picked it will say as much, then offer two buttons “One Day Before” and “One Day Further”. Now, with bigger cities, this works great, because there is always a flight coming in or out (apparently) on any given day. Toronto to Montreal for example has a few on each day. But try Charlottetown to anywhere. It’s a wasteland of emptiness! And you can only iterate through day by day. It takes forever!
It would be great if there were “Skip ahead to next flight” buttons. And I doubt it would be difficult to implement.
