If you're not booking your flights via app, maybe you should. Research from priceline.com says that you'd save money if you did. People who use apps for booking are younger than their desktop brethren, and many of them don't want to be tethered to pre-set, round-trip flight itineraries. 

The airline tickets data is similar to what priceline.com saw in earlier studies of hotel reservation trends and paints a picture of a mobile device-equipped consumer whose travel booking practices and preferences are very different from travelers who plan their trips using desktop computers and laptops.

"Mobile-equipped consumers are what we call 'untethered' travelers," said priceline.com's Travel Ekspert Brian Ek. "They like to create their travel experiences on the fly, rather than stick to itineraries planned far in advance. Hotels are typically chosen closer to check-in day (even on the same day), and many bookings are made while on the road or after arrival in town. Mobile-equipped travelers tend to book their airline tickets a bit closer-in than desktop users. And the choice of one-way tickets allows mobile travelers to adjust their length of stay and even return from a different city."

Priceline.com's study of airline ticket booking activity among mobile-equipped travelers found that:
  • Mobile air bookers averaged 32 years of age, or six years younger than the average desktop air booker;
  • Almost half of mobile air bookers booked one-way tickets; and
  • Mobile air bookers paid less for their tickets (average $283) than desktop users (average $315).

Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you're using? I'm planning to start my own blog soon but I'm having a difficult time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique.

If you have recently changed phones and are now using something other than an iPhone, then you likely have an old iPhone lying around that's not getting any use. In many cases your reason for getting a new phone might well be that your iPhone is broken, or that you have a cracked iPhone screen. If your iPhone is broken then it will certainly not be getting any use and is most likely not lying in disuse somewhere around your home.
