    So I promise I am not being a shill, but they just wrote a very cool article based on my day job's data with regards to flights.

    It has key nuggets like if you're flying from DFW-BJS you should fly on tuesday because its close to $200 cheaper ;)

    If anyone is interested in peering behind the covers of this data or seeing what we are cooking up in kitchen let me know. I can connect you to the right people ;)

    Thank you. I try to keep my hobbies and my job separate, Its been hard this past month where my day job is doing exciting things which overlap with my hobby.
