    I can't seem to find any access point on the ITA website?

    Also is there an alternative API I can work with to get flights and prices for an app i am working on?

    Yup, and it is NOT cheap. No GDS data is, unfortunately. You need a sizable budget to get in to the game.

    Not cheap at all.

    Wow. NS. I wouldn't have guessed that much. I wonder how many queries you have to commit to before the pricing starts to scale.

    This is appears to be a separate product from the main negotiated-rate QPX product (albeit one that makes my previous answer mostly wrong, since you can get 50 free queries per day -- enough for testing, at least).

    I've heard that contract commitments generally have several zeros in them. :(

    If I got charged 3.5 cents every time I queried the Matrix server, I'd have been broke a loooong time ago.

    So I looked into this today, and its definitely a "Collared Shirt" kind of form.

    Definitely not my kind of people ... Might need to build a fake website to get access to this ...
