Day 5

Identified Issues:

  • Users encountered zero search results due to up front filters reducing availability, complicated taxonomy of destinations, and no clear indication which airports fly to which destination.
  • Slow loading of results and 3rd party transition page resulted in high abandonment.
  • Limited lifestyle filters prevents refining results.


Experience mapping of typical user pain-points identified pricing package vs DIY holidays was a common and time consuming task users perform. Combining both holiday types in a single search presents a key USP for the brand.

Moving destination first in search allows unsupported airports to be flagged to user sooner, simplifying the elastic search destination suggestions, and removing filters from the initial search form, all reduce the possibility of user abandonment.

The UI is simplified with focus aligned to the search form along with the primary search button being placed in the initial viewport on all mobile phone screen sizes.
