    I have a list of about 500 items (these are search results for flights). I can order the list and what not but I am trying to figure out a way to display this in an easy to understand manor? Right now I have given the user a drop down select box that allows them to only display results from certain airlines after the search results have shown.

    Would grouping them together by airline help? I.E display all the airlines in the results then when you click on one it drops down all the results for the airline?

    Displaying over 500 at once seems a bit much and many of them can be from the same airline, for example you might have 150+ from Delta.


    Add multiple filters and sorting criteria.

    Direct flights/ 1 stop / 2 stop – checkboxes

    Departure Times – Outbound/Return – Sliders

    Airlines – checkboxes

    Airports (where multiple) – checkboxes

    Journey duration – Slider

    Sorting – Price etc.

    Example for existing site:


    This seems so obvious now I think of it. Time to put my Javascript hat on and sort through all of this data.

    I wonder how SkyScanner get all of the flight data :/ – this stuff is gold dust apparently.
