Curated Cheap Flights Aggregator (HackTheFlight.net)

Hacktheflight.net is an aggregator of a hand Picked selection of the Cheapest Airline Tickets, the most awesome Error Fares and the Craziest Price Glitches.

I have merged the deals (cheap flights, error fares, price glitches...) published by some of the main budget travel blogs out there as Fly4Free, SecretFlying, TravelPirates, etc... in a single site.

I added the possibility to search, filter and recive browser real time notifications in desktop and mobile (they are similar to facebook or whatsapp notifications).

About a couple of months ago I presented the site in FlyerTalk in a generic thread.

Example of some Deals that have appeared in HackTheFlight.net
- UK - Australia - 292€ (return)
- Barcelona - Maldivas - 242€ (return)
- Oslo - San Francisco - 143€ (return)
- Barcelona/Madrid/Vigo/Asturias/Sevilla/Malaga - Brasil - 248€ (return)
- Milan - Cuba 226€ (return)
- Berlin - Tailandia 149€ (return)
- Amsterdam - Alaska 340€ (return)
- London - Phuket 249€ (return)

- ....

After some improvements I have decided to open a dedicated thread. As the last time, I am here to ask for your feedback.
- The site doesn't require login.
- Completely free
- No Ads
- Links take the user directly to the targeted blog.

So, there is any feature you would love I add to the site?

The url is https://hacktheflight.net/

Wow! I love this site. The only suggestion I have for improving it would be a way to translate easily. I will definitely be bookmarking this.

Good idea. Looks a bit ugly to use.

Great, Hackthefilght, thank you!
One suggestion: using a standardised title for each posting, like first departure airport, second arrival airport, and then the other information, it would make the site more comfortable to read. Thanks!

Hi there!

Ok. New version is out!

- I have added a way to translate the titles of the deals, easily.
- Now it is possible to filter notifications! Once subscribed use the blue button on the top right corner "Filter Notifications" to access the dashboard. From there now you can choose from which pages you want to receive notifications, or not.

More features coming soon. Stay tuned

I agree, it is a little ugly. My only suggestion is the font size of the listings. It is a little small for those of us that are visually challenged! I understand this is a work in progress, but keep up the good work!

Hey! Thanks for the feedback Hot2trot!

Changing the font-size should be easy. From which device are you having problems (mobile/desktop/both)? Resolution of the screen and model of the device will be also helpful.

Hacktheflight is intented to show the maximum amount of data (designed with the aim to be a spreadsheet) so fonts are small and pictures have been surpressed. Despite of that we will look into it in order to try to improve the user experience.

Design is responsive so by the meanwhile you can use browser built-in zoom. Changing this value will only affect hacktheflight.net (and not the other pages).

Thanks again!

Dan

Hey!

Some of you requested us to offer the possibility to receive a daily recap of all the deals as a newsletter ( Thanks @Doubledead and @vernand ). Good news pals. Now it's possible!

Here it is:

https://hacktheflight.net/newsletter

We have made possible to choose from which group of sites you want to be updated (you will be prompted when you subscribe):
- Spanish Sites (exprimeviajes, happylowcost, guialowcost, viajerospiratas)
- US Sites (fly4free, theflightdeal,travelpirates)
- UK Sites (holidaypirates)
- German Sites (urlaubspiraten, urlaubshamster)
- Worldwide Sites (secretflying, cheapflightslab)

Be aware that it may be still buggy. Feedback will be gladly welcomed.

Hope you enjoy it guys

Next step: We are going to add some more deals to the stream. There is any site you think we should definitely incorporate to hacktheflight.net? We will evaluate any suggestion.
