www.nwa.com

Go through the booking part to select price. Any comments? It reminds me of F9 homepage and United Flight Selection part. I liked the old one better and it loaded faster but I'm sure somebody will differ in opinion.

edit:added my 4th sentence.

I liked the old design better. However it doesn't remind me of F9s website.

It does remind me a bit of UA (which reminds me of Orbitz). However, I don't know if it's any better than before. I would really prefer a matrix showing all one-way options and the related price, similar to what AS and WN uses. I hate having to select itineraries rather than individual flights (and being able to see how the timing of a specific flight effects the overall cost). I just find it better when you can pick the exact flight that you want each way, and see how that choice effects the bottom line.

Other than that, NW's website is probably the best of the majors.

The website is powered by Orbitz which is probably why it reminds people of Orbitz/UA/etc...


Some see lines, others see between the lines.

Quoting RwSEA (Reply 2):

Agreed...when I worked on the web team of an LCC, I never copied NW's code or anything unethical like that (and the important stuff isn't visible to the user anyway) but I did go look at their design a few times for ideas/inspiration.

It keeps switching. It was like this before also for like 2 days and then went back to the old style. Now its back to the new way.

This looks like the "new" fare search engine that NWA had to pull back a few months ago due to errors. I guess it's back. Hopefully error free this time.
