We love planes. In fact, one of our very own on the team was squealing with delight about the interior of ANA’s new Boeing 787 Dreamliner. Unveiled at the Paris Air Show, it really is stunning. We’re taking bets here at the office as to what the launch route will be (money is currently on NRT-SIN, leave your wagers in the comments We’ve learned it’s actually going to be NRT/HND-LAX).

If you’re like me, you’ll want to have this track playing in the background while you watch.

DemoGirl takes you on a tour of Hipmunk!

We just saw this pop up on a news alert. It seems Molly, the splendid screencaster behind DemoGirl, made a wonderful walkthrough for Hipmunk.

When I’m searching for the best airline tickets I usually head to multiple search engines and travel sites where I spend hours comparing flight times, connections, prices, dates and alternative airports. I do all of this because I want to not only get the lowest price, but I also want to get to my destination at a certain time without dealing with long layovers and multiple connections. Yesterday, when I found Hipmunk, I was pleasantly surprised to find one site that filters all of my concerns into one search to help me find the very best flight for my money.

Thank you, Molly! Check out her video below:
