Latest commit 8a29d82
This is a simple program that is used to find the cheapest flights to europe (and other places) from a given airport code. It is useful if you are interested in traveling to a certain portion of the world but aren't really concerned about exactly where. In order to use this, you will need to have bundler installed and (eventually) phantomjs. After doing a git clone you should bundle install. This should install phantomjs. After bundle finishes running verify that phantomjs is in your path. Once it is the usage is as follows: bundle exec ruby cheapest_flight_to_europe.rb DEPARTURE_AIRPORT_CODE DEPART_DATE RETURN_DATE For example: bundle exec ruby cheapest_flight_to_europe.rb LAX,LGB,SNA,BUR,ONT 2012-12-18 2013-01-02 This will return CSV separated list of values of the format: Price in USD, City - Country, URL Here are some example results: $1,278 , Osaka - Japan , http://www.google.com/flights/#search;f=LAX,LGB,SNA,BUR,ONT;t=KIX;d=2012-12-18;r=2013-01-02 $1,429 , Seoul - Korea , http://www.google.com/flights/#search;f=LAX,LGB,SNA,BUR,ONT;t=GMP;d=2012-12-18;r=2013-01-02 $1,459 , Tokyo - Japan , http://www.google.com/flights/#search;f=LAX,LGB,SNA,BUR,ONT;t=NRT;d=2012-12-18;r=2013-01-02 There are three scripts currently, one for europe, one for asia and one for australia/newzealand. Enjoy!
