Good morning everyone, happy Thursday. I just wanted to give a quick shoutout to everyone who attended the SF Travel Hackers March Meetup last night. I gave a presentation about my recent trip to Iguazu Falls, Argentina. I will work on getting that presentation turned into a blog post “soon”. In today’s post, I will show you how I used Google Flights to track a WOW Air flight from Reykjavik, Iceland (KEF) to San Francisco (SFO). I’ve always been interested in Iceland, and even more so after reading Whitney’s posts (Iceland & What I Wish I Had Known Before Going – Part 1 and Part 2).
I’ve been planning a trip to Iceland for the last few weeks and knew the dates I wanted to travel, but I just had to wait for the price to go down. One of the many great things about Google Flights is that you can track specific routes on specific days, and you can even track specific flights on specific days. I received the following email from Google Flights that the WOW Air flight I was tracking dropped from $469 to $263. Granted, this is not the cheapest possible WOW Flight I have ever seen, but the price was right for me so I jumped on the deal.
