    It is horrendously fast...

    I think one of the coolest features is that when you select the origin city and dates it automatically populates the map with prices. Could be a useful tool to find good mileage runs at a glance, depending on how fresh the data is...

    I popped in a weekend trip from NYC in October with a max of $150 and Boston/DC automatically showed up in the map, with everything else being filtered out. It has potential, so we'll see how it matures as time goes by.

    Why don't the VX flight prices show up? Are they restricting it like WN now too?

    Looks good from larger airports, Hubs, but nothing 'pops' up from our small regional airports, where some of us actually live, and fly from/to. MLI, PIA etc.

    Google doesn't care about the little people.

    Once they add ANYWHERe outside the us 50 (not SJ PR yet) like canada or ROW this will be a pretty useful tool. ;)

    I actually agree with what they are doing, as it really is still a beta, not a launched product. The best way to test the system is to have users break it, but without putting too much load. They will probably have small airports and all of North America by the end of the year.
