Improving the Journey Builder
Based on all the feedback we have received after the launch of the new AwardFares UI, we are now releasing some improvements that should make it easier to build journeys. We hope you will appreciate these improvements, and please keep sending us feedback!
Clicking “Add Flight” now correctly filters flights based on the arrival or departure time of another flight. For example, it will no longer show flights that depart before arriving, and it will also show flights for more than one date.
Furthermore, a new feature we’ve added is that connection times are now shown directly in the flights list. This should make it much easier to choose the optimal flight for your journey. Color coding should also make this easier at a glance.
The connection time is color coded based on the following rules (the same rules apply in the journey list):
- Short Layover (shorter than 1 hour) → Yellow
- Long Layover (longer than 4 hours) → Yellow
- Overnight (departs after 4 AM the next day) → Yellow
- Stopover (longer than 24 hours) → Red
Journey loading time
Another small improvement, we’ve improved the loading time for large journeys with many segments. Rather than taking several seconds, journeys should now load almost instantly.
