Meet Me Half Way!

A fun website I recently put together for a hackathon run by Amadeus. I've not created anything for the web in ages so this was good fun to put together, and try and figure out this modern JavaScript thing :)

The backend is written in Python 3 using Flask and is run on a fun mix of Amazon Lambda, S3 and the awesome PythonAnywhere. It's something that I'm keen on developing - one of the most interesting things I've found is the amount of data that can be retrieved for a simple flight query: Operating vs Marketing Airlines, Routing, Stopovers, Pricing Rules etc., and I found that for this application I was throwing a lot of this data away. The pricing model of the data supplier (Amadeus) is that you pay per search performed, and so if you were to already to present to the user a predection that prices might be unfavourable, or that the 'short hop' actually consisted of 3 segements with a 4 hour connection time, you could both eliminate these results and hence expense, and also improve the user experience...
