I definitely went over and just told him how incredible that was. Even though with the season that they’re having, when accomplishments happen throughout the season, you try not to take them for granted. I think it’s an incredible feat for him.”ADVERTISEMENT Conor McGregor seeks to emerge from controversy in UFC comeback Cleveland Cavaliers’ LeBron James (23) laughs after being called for a foul against the Charlotte Hornets during the second half of an NBA basketball game in Charlotte, N.C., Wednesday, March 28, 2018.

1 What do you do at Skyscanner I make sure t

first_img**1. What do you do at Skyscanner?**I make sure that the prices we display on our site are as fresh and accurate as possible.2. What kind of flight geek are you? Learning geek. Whether it’s a new technology, language or a guitar riff, I’ll spend hours trying to master it.3. What best generally describes your travel style? I usually know where I want to go, and I’m more flexible on the “when” part.4. What’s your ideal holiday?I like to keep a balance between seeing as many interesting places as possible and relaxing on the beach/by the pool. I usually end up visiting all the places around worth seeing, yet it is always great to be able to relax a bit too, so after a day or two of sightseeing I can sunbathe for hours.5. Who’s your ideal travel companion? I love travelling with my wife, Monika, but for a less probable partner I would probably pick Derek Parfit and chat about his views on personal identity.6. Do you fly with children?Well, there’s usually some kids on the plane. But not mine, not yet anyway.7. How do you decide where you want to go?There’s a few places that I dream of visiting (for example: The Maldives, New Zealand and maybe Japan) so we keep a shortlist and decide if this year is the year to go or not. We then use the internet to verify and specify our selections, and visit Skyscanner to find the best deals.8. How do you decide when you want to go?Normally it depends on our holidays and other travel plans – we try to spread our longer holidays and visits to our home town evenly throughout the year. We also like to spend our wedding anniversary somewhere interesting each year.9. What annoys you most about planning holidays?I’m actually quite keen on planning trips, and with Skyscanner becoming a one-stop-shop for travelling it’s getting even easier now. But for the finer details like airport transfers or specific excursions, I’ll wait until we get there.10. What are you doing in your job at Skyscanner to help? I’m a user of the site myself, so I know that accurate prices are the key to success. My team and I also try to enable our users to redirect to pre-populated partner websites – select the dates, routes and currency just once and let us handle the rest!11. What’s your favourite thing about the Skyscanner site?Knowing the actual complexities that sit under the hood. There are hundreds of airlines and providers and thousands of routes, which are all aggregated to let our users find exactly what they need in seconds.12. What’s your dream feature?It would probably be keyword-driven free text search. I would enter “sunny beaches and ancient monuments in May” and Skyscanner would find my dream holiday.13. Favourite websites apart from Skyscanner and why?For my geeky needs, I love the w3schools website which has everything you need to know about web programming, the standardized way. I also love the xkcd web comic, which touches on a lot of my hobbies: humour, IT and science, some philosophy and lots of interesting references.14. What’s the geekiest thing about you? Your secret geek shame?I’m quietly planning to take over the world with the game me and my friend from Skyscanner are writing now. I’m not sure though if we can fit any planes between all the mystical creatures.15. Worst travel experience?Waiting for hours in a bus near the airport only to find out that our plane was being used to pick up XL Airways passengers on the other side of Europe in the aftermath of that airline’s bankruptcy, would be high on the list. Yet it’s nothing compared to an ear infection at 10000 meters above the ground. My advice would be: don’t fly on the same day you went diving; you might end up with a really sore head.Meet more Flight Search GeeksReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Map Introducing the flight search geeks that make Skyscanner work RelatedFlight Geek of the Week – Laura WilsonFlight Geek of the Week – Laura WilsonFlight Geek of the Week – Andrew PhillipsFlight Geek of the Week – Andrew PhillipsFlight Geek of the Week – Joe SarreIntroducing the flight search geeks that make Skyscanner work.last_img read more
