Computational Complexity of Air Travel Planning
This document is an annotated set of slides on the computational complexity of air travel planning. The goal is to give
somebody with an undergraduate level computer science background enough information to understand why air travel
planning is an interesting and especially difficult problem. It provides a basic introduction to the air travel planning
problem and then presents a variety of original computational complexity results as well as some related demos. The
complexity slides assume a basic familiarity with formal languages, computational complexity and computability, but the
introduction to the problem should be accessible without this.

Google Flights will now tell you when fares will increase | Hacker News
dmbaggett on Oct 18, 2016 [-]

Fares and rules come from ATPCO ( Flights come from OAG ( Seat availability requires data directly from the carrier, usually via a live query to the carrier's reservation system.
The GDS companies get this data from these sources and then in turn provide (crappy) APIs for customers to use to query it.

In general, if you're doing bookings you can get small amounts of the data (a query at a time) from a GDS. Otherwise you're looking at millions of dollars per year. And then you need to write code to parse it and price tickets using it (approximately 1M LoC if you're terse about it -- more like 30M if you're a GDS).

(I know all this because I co-founded ITA Software, whose software now powers Google Flights.)
