Updated: On FareCast: Rip Me Off No More

By - June 06, 2006

Farecast Logo

Second Update: Hugh has given us unlimited invites (thanks Hugh!) and a process for making this easy. I’ll have this done asap.

Most likely you are painfully aware of how bizarre and seemingly inscrutable the pricing schemes are for airline travel. One day you might get a fare from SF to Boston for $400, the next it’s $335, and the day after that it’s $500. Why? Well, airlines have shitloads of data about historical pricing; they understand the supply and demand curves for every market, and they know when they need to sell more seats, boost margins, or compete to win business. They take advantage of all that data to push a price at you that suits them, and they’re very, very good at leveraging algorithms to drive maximum revenue. It’s frustrating as hell to use an online service like Expedia to try to beat the airlines at their own game – it simply isn’t the right interface. Not to mention, Expedia’s real customers are the travel companies – not you.

I got a chance to talk to Farecast founder Hugh Crean earlier last week, right before I penned this missive on not being able to do reviews. And in fact, this is not a review of Farecast, as much as I wish I had time for that. However, Hugh did spend a few minutes showing me around the site, and I found what it does really interesting, though for different reasons that perhaps others might.

Farecast1

You can sign up for the private beta on the homepage, it’ll be out later in the year. The basic premise is neat – Farecast pays attention to the market price of all airline fares out of particular cities (it only does Boston and Seattle for now) at all times (it uses an industry data feed that, unfortunately, does not include Southwest). It then uses this data to help forecast when the right time might be for you to buy your ticket (and get the best price). In short, it’s a rip off detector for flights. Farecast leverages the power of data to put you back in charge, or at least more in charge.

What Farecast does is shift the power of information back into the consumer’s hands, and that’s why I like it. I remember when the web was young and the first car buying sites were up and running. Dealers scrambled for that early business, and I bought two cars off the web by forcing dealers in the Bay Area to compete for my business. It really felt like the web was going to change the dynamic of who was in charge in a car buying transaction – because I could force dealers to their best price, I was always going to get the best price. It felt like this would be the model in most large transactions, like travel, loans, etc. Price would stabilize, and folks would differentiate on service, relationship, and approach.

But something funny happened on our way to internet mediated bliss: the big companies figured out how to game our demand. Dealers realized they can make more profit if they cooperate and withhold pricing information from the aggregators, and the aggregators got into bed with the supply side of the equation (if you think AutoByTel or Expedia is on your side, you’re kidding yourself). Nowhere is this more true that in how an airline prices its tickets.

I like how Farecast puts the consumer back in control of the data. The interface is very slick and the idea is quite promising. So I very much wish Farecast well, and I’d love to hear about other services which disrupt other markets where access to data is so one sided.

Hugh has given me 25 invitations to the private beta, if you’re interested, let me know in comments below.

Update: Hugh has emailed me and upped my invite limit to 150. But give me some time to get them out to you….

    I too got an invite to Farecast but the fact that it is only useful for flights originating SEA or BOS at the moment really kills its usefulness for me, I’m based in CLE.

    Love the idea but until their originating airport list opens up a little I am unable to see what everyone is raving about.

    FIRST!

    John, I want to try it. My fake email is alexthegreatmma@hotmail.com

    I travel to apparel trade shows all the time. This would be great.

  • Jon Steinberg

    Would love a beta invite-thx

  • Chris

    Would appreciate an invite…thanks!!

  • http://www.mindthis.net Lars Plougmann

    I would be delighted to try this out. The powers of the internet to aggregate data and use it to foster competition by empowering customers has long been an interest of mine. I have previously analysed on http://www.mindthis.net how this is true for airline punctuality.
    Thank you.

    An invite would be great!
    thanks

    [sigh] Now, if only someone would do the same sort of thing for the Web.. wouldn’t that be a great thing? Imagine a search engine where, after typing your query, you got all sorts of information about trends on the web related to your query: how many new pages on your topic have been added to the web in the past n days? What is the distribution over other query terms that are related/relevant to your query terms? In what clusters do many of the returned results belong?

    At the moment, all the big search engines cling bitterly to this dogma about users being lazy and users only wanting to see “the one best” result at the top of the list. They don’t understand that sometimes we the searchers want to see the big picture.

    As a result, I feel kinda like John.. the web was supposed to change the dynamic of who was in charge.. but it ended up being coopted by big companies. Today when I search for anything of any potential commercial interest on, say, Google, I feel like I am being held hostage by the advertisers in the right column, and the SEOs in the left column. Even if they are white-hat SEOs, they are very good at what they do, and they work for commercial interests, not my for interests. My ability to “take back the web” by controlling the flow of information.. by getting all the good statistics and visualizations and overviews of my topic area.. unmitigated by SEO and advertising.. currently does not exist in any of the major search engines.

    It is nice to see yet another company try to shift the balance of power back to the users. I hope this succeeds.

    Would love an invite. I have followed pricing on the routes I travel, would love to see how my qualitative perception matches up with this data.

  • Geoff Smith

    This reminds of a course run by a professor at Imperial College (John Darlington – it was one of his research interests). The idea was that the internet acted a little like a financial market but you had to be really careful about asymetric information (i.e. the seller knows more about the product than the buyer). It sounds like this site would balance out the information available to buyers and sellers in the market. Which in theory would improve market efficiency and prices would be closer to the actual value to the buyers and sellers.

  • http://joeduck.wordpress.com Joe Hunkins

    Please send an invite – this looks great. Reminds me of Robert Metcalf’s “flyspy.com” which was one of the most popular mashups at Mashup Camp in February.

  • MikeM

    I hate being 43rd in line for something that only goes to 25!

    Nice post John. Good luck to the guys at Farecast

  • http://zybx.com/ Christian von Kleist

    This looks fantastic. It’s infuriating to browse for airfare because searches through Expedia and similar sites take so long because the flight information they analyze is so vast. However, by playing around a great deal at various travel sites (and by being willing to leave a few days before or after your ideal date) you can often save around $100 and somtimes more.

    I hate the way airlines jack up ticket prices for international tickes for US customers. Try pricing a round-trip ticket from NYC to London and back, and then do it the other way around. The ticket that starts in the UK will cost 25-40% less! This is the same for all international destinations when departing from the US. I think the assumption is that Americans are just willing to pay more for airfare.

    I travel frequently, so a tool like this is great interest to me. If you have any more invitations, I’d love one.

    Thanks very much! I’m traveling to London at the end of this month.

  • http://www.dumbfind.com dumbfounder

    SSShhhhhh!!!!! We need to keep this to ourselves! If everyone starts using this then prices will reach some sort of equilibrium and then we won’t get sweet deals anymore. Obviously the airlines can’t just have cheap rates for everyone (noticed how many airlines went bankrupt the last 5 years?) so we need other people to pay the high prices so we can pay the low ones.

  • http://tagalyzer.com/links Charles

    I’d also love an invite if they’re still going. Cheers.

    Great intro ,I would love to see how this develops and if Farecast can continue to get all the data from the big airline companies to make this useful for the end consumer.
    i would love an invite!

    It seems like the lack of Southwest in the data feed is not that bad, since they seems to have much more transparent pricing than other airlines.

    John,
    Do you know what FareCast’s plan is for making money? I would certainly like to see a good plan–for their sake and ours. We, as consumers, could really use a service like this.

    And if you have any invites left, I would love one. Thanks!

  • peter

    I’d love an invite if you have some left. My disposable email address is bsas-cju7@xemaps.com. I am interested to see whether they are good at telling you whether prices are about to go down. It seems to me that the standard thing is for prices to go up as you approach departure, making it advantageous to buy sooner. The info they could provide that would be useful would be to let you know if it would be better to postpone your purchase a little while (and how long). thanks

    It will be interesting to see how this will couple with fare search (e.g. FareChase, Kayak, Mobissimo) to not only predict when the low fare hits, but also go out and search at that time (and, ideally, then send me an email notification).

    I would love an invitation to the Beta if you have one to give. Thanks

  • Tyler

    I would enjoy an invite if you happen to have one to spare.

    The idea of this simply blows me away in terms of coincidence. I was literally talking about how a site should be created to do this almost 8 hours ago when my girlfriend bought a ticket for this evening to fly to Canada (personal reasons). The price difference from buying it the day of versus buying it in the past was astounding to me simply based upon the product (the seat) and its supposed worth. The upping of the price only leads one to beleive the companies are feeding off desperation, which is always sad in my mind, but supply and demand I guess. Anyway, I have gotten off topic.

    Thanks for the post. Interesting idea.

  • http://idek.net Adam C

    Ohh Ohh, I’m a boston flyer too. If you have any left I’d love to try that out. If not, thx for the tip on the cool site, this has been a huge headache for me lately. I was just lamenting how backwards this sales model is. No where else can you fluctuate prices so amazingly and with such seeming lack of reason.

    Why do we stand for this? why can it happen? Well, I think it all leads back to the facts that 1) Airlines have very little idea what their doing; which leads to them needing subsidies to keep in the air which leads to 2) they get a lot of money from uncle sam to stay afloat, so they can get things so crucial like a pricing model wrong.

    I’m sure there are other reasons, but like you said, I’m glad to see that some one has figured out how to shift that power back to us.

    Thanks – Adam

    You don’t need aggregators to get a good price on a car. You just need phone numbers. The manufacturer’s web site produced the phone numbers and I did the rest.

    I bought a new car last year from a dealer who was 400 miles from where I live. He had exactly the car I wanted (make/model/color/features). There were two cars that exactly fit my specifications in California and I was able to get the dealers to compete for my business. I got 10% off msrp and some extra features I didn’t want tossed in.

    Without the web, I never would have been able to find those dealers.

    Farecast is a great concept. We at TripHub recently sponsored an event in Seattle with TechCrunch.

    After using Farecast to predict the best times to fly based on airfare, you can plan any type of group trip using the free collaborative tools built by TripHub.com.

    And if you book your flight on another site, you can simply communicate the flight into on one central “trip home” page for family reunions, weekend getaways with friends and the like.

  • FizzieSoda

    I work for a very large travel company, one that is on the intertron, one which was originally a team at another very VERY large software company. I’m not sure it makes a difference to the point made in this write up, but it is an interesting factoid regardless.

    All travel companies get the same price on airline flights. We all turn around and charge our customers that one same price for that ticket. Our profit is a flat $5 per seat. Simple as that. Our goal is to move as many seats as possible to take that $5 “commision” and turn it in to a profit.

    There are exceptions of course. Orbitz is owned by several airlines, and you will usually get the absolute best flight deal right from them as they control their own pricing differently at that site.

    I do agree though, this tool looks like it will go a long way to change the structure of consumer travel. While it probably can not be predicted as to the effectiveness of this particular site, it will no doubt spawn competition. Competition, as we know, can effect rediculously radical changes in a given industry.

  • http://wrightmight.com Patrick

    Not sure if you’ve hit 150, but…I need to book a few flights out of Seattle for later in the year, and would love to check out Farecast before I do! Thanks.

  • jamie3k1

    If the invite requests here are any indication, this thing will be huge when it goes public. I wonder how the airlines and other price-manipulating powers-that-be will respond?

    Oh, and can I get an invite too, please? Many thanks.

    This would be wonderful. I am trying to fly four people down to Florida and the rates are insane. Please send a beta invite! Thanks! :)

    Farecast is in public beta now, so no need for invites.

    And, having used it since the limited beta period, it is great, except I’ve been finding really great fares on there (and the dire prediction of the fares going up up up) and been totally unable to match those prices when I go try to buy the flight on the carrier’s web site. For example, a United flight which comes up at $259 on Farecast goes for $390 on United’s web site. Unless these discrepancies are addressed, it’s not such a useful tool.

    If invites are still around, I’d love to get in on this.

  • http://qe2.livejournal.com Queue

    If you’ve still got invites to give away, I’m definitely curious about this. As I’ve just found your writing, however, I’ll certainly understand if you’d prefer to limit takers to those you know.

  • Tom Bruning

  • julio bruno

    Great initiative. Pity is that it only works in the USA. Are they planning an international version? If so, I travel non-stop in Europe and I would love to try it. I know the industry very well.

  • nawadnianie

    Love the idea but until their originating airport list opens up a little I am unable to see what everyone is raving about.

    But something funny happened on our way to internet mediated bliss: the big companies figured out how to game our demand. Dealers realized they can make more profit if they cooperate and withhold pricing information from the aggregators, and the aggregators got into bed with the supply side of the equation (if you think AutoByTel or Expedia is on your side, you’re kidding yourself). Nowhere is this more true that in how an airline prices its tickets

    Most likely you are painfully aware of how bizarre and seemingly inscrutable the pricing schemes are for airline travel. One day you might get a fare from SF to Boston for $400, the next it’s $335, and the day after that it’s $500. Why?
