If you don't mind, I wonder how you extract the data from airasia? You extract the data on the fly or you pre-extract it then store it at your db then serve it to us?

Are you on of the technical programmer for your website?

It is cool that you are able to mirror those data out smile.gif

Probably in the future, might need to ask if you are willing to help me in some projects as well smile.gif

Great job guys. I'm really delighted and proud to find a great start-up from Msia instead of just Singapore and Indonesia.

For others, you might wanna check-out my post on Fleapy at Evan Hugh

Thanks alot Bonescythe. Thank you for blogging a post about us. We couldn't agree more with your title of Air Asia Simplified.
And yup we hope you are able to score an awesome getaway using our site! =D

The Air Asia promo event was a huge one, and we it didn't turn out the way that we would like it to be at 12am.
Anyhow, we have updated most of our routes with the promo low fares and also a step by step guide on how to make the best out of the promo.
Hope you guys find it helpful! smile.gif

One feature lacking is that it does not enable us to pick the range of dates, but only highlights the lowest possible fares, which may not fall on the date of our travels.


Added on September 22, 2011, 8:38 pmon another note, how do you monetize this?

i think since its tied to airasia, you can opt for them to place ads on your site, since it helps users simplify their searches. Can include other airlines as well. Then you can have trousim related ads?

We are really sorry for that missing feature.
Yea we have been thinking about that for a bit. But we decided to keep the app simple, just pick your destinations and only show the lowest fares.
Showing more dates would be cool, but that would turn our app to be quite similar to Air Asia's offering.
Figuring that the one thing they didnt tell you is where those low fares are.
So yea, that is a missing key feature, we will continue to think about the best way to deal with that, and eventually support that. smile.gif

As for monetization, to be honest we have never thought about that yet. Fleapy is maintained as a side project by the 2 of us.
When it scales up, we will figure a way to fund it and keep it going. But for now, we think what we have now works well for us biggrin.gif

Yes it is. But, after thinking for a bit, we think there isn't much people who are going to click it.
The ads can be relevant/irrelevant. Adding that wouldn't really change much or help cover the entire cost.

If not many users are going to click it, then there isn't much reason for being there.
It would probably create an extra noise in the design.

We aim to give the best user experience when you're searching on Fleapy.
So when it comes to ads, we are going to think further on how/what to show biggrin.gif

You wouldn't know if people are going to click on it or not..
Haha..

Don't judge your audience so fast without even knowing them yet smile.gif

Thanks, that's a really great insight!
But if we were to add Google Ads onto our page, we would need to increase its conversion/clickthrough rate.
That would mean putting it somewhere obvious and visible so users would click.
That may probably affect the user experience that we set out to create in the first place.
As for now, It's more rewarding to see users enjoy using the app rather than making some quick money out of it; but the future might be different. biggrin.gif
