There should be versions of Firefox that run from a USB drive. Such as http://portableapps.com/apps/internet/firefox_portable

Just tried this out. I really like the interface and the way they show you the options available when entering the information. As I pointed out to the online rep, I think they should give you the option to choose a site to purchase from. For example, right now I'm booking flights through AMEX due to the double points promo they have going. I get 3X MR with my Premier Gold and an additional MR point for booking through them. I lieu of that I would at least like the option to purchase direct from the airline website (not crazy about Orbitz/Expedia)

Overall though, an excellent start.

When I try set # of nights on the "Price Graph" tab to zero, I get - "that trip length is too small". Is that intentional? It works fine on ITA whenever I try to look up the same-day trips.

Would be cool if you can add fare class functionality like ITA.. but that might be asking for a lot. 😉

Awesome update!

As far as the iPad app is concerned, we can't do the advanced searches/route language support like we can through the regular site correct?

Thanks for the suggestions! We're constantly trying to add new ways to book flights. We already have direct booking arrangements with dozens of airlines (domestic and international) and are working on even more.

Looking into this. 🙂

On the to-do list!

Not right now, but give it time. You should be able to do it on our Android app, however.

I have minor request. Would it be possible to add distance information for each leg when you click on flight options? It'd be nice to have a quick glimpse as to the miles involved without going to a mileage calculator? Maybe you guys can put in a "distance" tab in the sort fields you already have

Thanks!

Should be possible; we won't know exactly what each airline considers the exact mileage, but we can could the great circle distance.

Even a generic calculator like webflyer.com 's version would work, just to at least get a rough idea. If someone needs to measure to a mile, they can probably confirm it with other sources, but I was thinking in general terms.

hipmunk: Why do you code EVA (BR) as a *A carrier? I thought that they only announced their application, not that they were accepted.

We don't. 🙂 Unless you specifically instruct Hipmunk to hide all flights besides your preferred alliance, we still show other alliances' options if they have better schedules or fares.
