YHack-FillSeat

Fill those last few seats on your flight.

Inspiration

We were inspired by JetBlue's search for efficiency in travel.

What it does

It provides incentives for users to purchase the remaining few tickets for flights.

How I built it

Built with an Angular front end and a nodejs RESTful API backend. This provides extensibility beyond webapps, into mobile apps and other platforms. We built our dataset of JetBlue flights then calculated the deals based on the destinations and the origins and as well as filling the maximum number of seats possible in a flight.

Challenges I ran into

Creating our own data model and services.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

The beautiful reactive design of our website.

What I learned

Prioritize key features of the finished product.

What's next for FillSeat

Expand beyond webapps, provide more personalized deals (eg: for veterans) and solve this problem for more than just flights.
