I’ve always been fascinated with data science. Reading books like Freakonomics and Predictable Irrationality deepened my curiosity for understanding how people think and behave given specific circumstances. At ID90 Travel, we leverage data analytics to paint a picture of our customers’ experience across the entire application. We focus on what customers do, why they do what they do, where customers come from and where customers spend the most time.
This month, we focused on features that would help members find the best interline deals. Between improving our filters and shopping for the best rates, we’ve made it our mission to ensure you don’t miss out on a great deal. In addition, we’ve added a new feature that will show you how much you’ve saved booking hotels with us when compared to other travel sites.
We’re happy to announce the new ID90 Travel App: a sleek one-stop shop travel app featuring On-the-Go discounts for airline employees and retirees. The ID90 Travel App brings an easy-to-use flight booking interface to mobile airline employees, retirees, and their network. Users can also save up to 70% on hotels and car rentals, in over 38,000 destinations worldwide.
The world has a big problem coming its way. According to human resources expert Rainer Strack of The Boston Consulting Group, there will be a global resource crisis by 2030. That means there will be far too few employees to fill the world’s available jobs. It won’t be a sudden crisis. It’ll be a slow process that is already starting to happen as Baby Boomers retire.
As the spouse of an airline employee, I’ve taken my fair share of last-minute trips. We were always hesitant to book a hotel in advance since we never knew for certain if we were going to get on our desired flight. And once we did get seats on a flight, the excitement of holding our coveted boarding passes was often quickly tempered by the realization that we had about the length of the jet bridge to quickly find a hotel. What a hassle! If only you had the same capabilities of the Flight Watch List…
Las Vegas, aka Sin City, is a Mecca for gamblers and vacationers alike. The city has become one of the top tourist destinations in the world. It is also one of the top three U.S. locations for conventions and business meetings. Since many of us have been there (oftentimes more than a few times), I’d like to look at Vegas from a different angle, one that highlights the “other things” one can do while visiting.
A few months ago, our family took a weekend trip from Dallas to New Orleans to meet up with some of our extended family. In the planning stages, it looked pretty simple knowing how airline employees travel. Fly standby to New Orleans on Friday afternoon using my wife’s airline-employee flight passes, get a cab to the hotel, fly home on Sunday morning. That’s not exactly how things turned out.
