- John Appleseed, 32
- Entrepreneur in Atlanta, GA
- Looking for a business travel to Beijing, China
- Should be a roundtrip
- “When should I leave and when to return? Which plan is the best – not too expensive but won’t be a long trip so it’ll be comfortable enough?”
John found this tool called “RPTable”, and it looks cool.
- He typed the “home city” as Atlanta, and “traveling city” as Beijing
- He selected a range of date that he wants to leave (he is thinking about any of these 6 days, 1/23 to 1/28)
- As well as the return date (could be any day from these 5 days, 2/22 – 2/26)
- He always trusts Skyscanner, so he selected it as the data provider for this flight check.
- Based on the range of dates he selected, there are 6×5=30 combinations
- Looks like if he choose to leave on either January 24 or 25 and return on February 22, the price will be the cheapest
- However, it takes 35 hours and it sounds exhausting for an international flight
- “No more than 24 hours”, John thinks.
- He applied a filter, so any flights with the duration more than 24 hours will be hidden, and it will show the lowest price but with the condition of “duration less than 24 hours”.
- “Looks like I should fly on 1/26.” John clicked on the text in the table that were highlighted, and it jumped to the Skyscanner website with the list of flights that I’m looking for – and of course, the same date that he’s looking for.
