This is a place devoted to giving you deeper insight
into the news, trends, people and technology behind Bing.
Bing travel crunches over a billion airfares on a daily basis to bring you Price Predictors, and we use that data to uncover cheap airline tickets every day. To help you find great deals even faster, we are introducing “Autosuggest Flight Prices” which display flight prices and the Price Predictor for key markets directly in the search box. Before you ever hit the enter key, you will see our prediction for the best flight price deal over the next 90 days.
With Autosuggest Flight Prices natural language capabilities, you can simply type “Fly to Chicago” or “Chicago Flights” and Bing will immediately recognize where you are, in this case Seattle, and instantaneously display the Price Predictor based on your location.
Building on our work in natural languages, Bing will do it's best to recognize city and airport names which will improve as more people use the feature.
This is yet another example of how Bing helps you stop searching and start deciding. Please let us know what you think.
This is neat, but what I'd really like to see from bing travel is price predictors for smaller markets. I happen to live in a smaller market (about 200,000 in the metro area) and bing price predictors don't work for my city's airport, so it's almost useless to me. :(
@gregboyko Hear you loud and clear...we're always looking at ways we can improve the service. Thanks for the feedback.
"Bing Travel recognizes colloquial names like Chi Town. "
This looks like a great widget and I do like how the price is displayed right under the search tem, brilliant.
