    SWISS just launched a new handy tool that would help you decide where to go. You just need to select your departure airport, travel budget, and preferred temperature on arrival. My Destination tool will find all the possible destinations that meet your criteria. If you look around the tool, you can also fine tune the searches to select certain activities and continents.

    What do you think?

    Interesting.

    However, it involves FB, so obvious tracking/profiling there - no idea on whether I would even need this, but I'm sure it can help people with no guidance/urges, etc.! [​IMG]

    I have to agree with you. But sometimes, people do run out of ideas and places to go too so this could help.

    This tool has actually been online for a couple of months, but maybe it was formally launched just now. I fail to see the Facebook link, to be honest. When you click on this link off the LX main site, you get to the tool without any Facebook involvement it seems?

    Either way, the LX tool may be a scaled-down version of the really cool "affinity search" function pioneered by Amadeus and Lufthansa USA here. This comes with real-time fare display over a period of time, and won them an innovation award at the PhocusWright conference in 2009.

    If any of you guys keep the LX newsletter you'll actually find this tool was introduced on April 7th, 2010. It was titled "New: tailored travel ideas".
    I don't really keep them but my gmail inbox is just too big to be disciplied [​IMG]
