I just thought, if there isn't I might write one. Then it occurred to me the sheer number of combinations you'd have to analyse and store is mind boggling so I suspect the matrix view on skyscanner is as good as it gets.

Direct might be possible as there are generally no more than 2 flights per airline per day per airport just to MCO. Maybe pick the top 10 UK airports. Any date out plus any date within 28 days back x 10 airports x 2 flights per day is 204400 results to record per day. That's doable. MCO and direct only of course.

I'll keep having a think if there is a sensible way to do it, if there is I might write one so add feature requests here lol.

Check out the following Dibb forum and is this similar to what you're proposing?


If so, it would prove extremely helpful to have a similar thread on this forum and good luck if you start one up.

Oops, that raises another issue, Virgin alone has realistically 9 fares people are interested in. Each of EC, PE, UC in lowest, M+M and Miles only.

So 10 airports to MCO would be nearly 2 million records per day to keep.

Still doable, I have my own web server so might be able to start something in the new year.
