In Google Maps, while using the App to get directed for example to rental car return, you can search for locations 'on the way'. If you click 'Gas Stations', it shows gas stations along the way, with the amount of time the detour forces, and with their gas price (if known). It does not automatically select or offer the last possible one as you asked, but it ...

Matrix allows you to do a month long search: You'll have to search a month forward each time.

Wikitravel/Wikivoyage is the only website I know of that comes close. E.g. for Frankfurt it says the following: If you intend to stay overnight, you may wish to avoid times when trade fairs are held, as this will make finding affordable accommodation a challenging task. The biggest are the Frankfurt Motor Show (Automobil-Ausstellung) every two years in ...

Of all the search engines known to me, it can be done with Kiwi. Say I want to fly to Madrid from anywhere in Central + Eastern Europe, I can choose Madrid as my destination and a circle encompassing approximately my suitable departure airports as shown below. Only look to the list on the left as I could not make out any sense in the prices shown on ...

At least for Germany (which you used in your examples), the hotel booking site hrs.de is a good source. You can change your language at the top right if it is not automatically detected. You can enter a longer period, and if a major event falls into this period, you'll get a warning. Unfortunately that won't work if no hotel is found at all for the whole ...

I would not go as far and call this a scam, it is a stylized fact of the Google search algorithm. The official Guangzhou airport homepage is horribly slow to load (it took 10 minutes for me to load right now) and no better to navigate as I can tell from past experience. The first hit you mention instead does provide little information and apparently mostly ...

If you have a specific flight in mind, with the flight number, you can use FlightAware, which has pretty good global coverage for most airlines. The duration is shown on the right: actual duration for completed flights and scheduled duration for upcoming/in progress ones.

Hipmunk gives you a nice graphical representation of flights and their duration.

Minimum Connection Times are not freely published anywhere to my knowlege. A subscription to a site such as expertflyer is required. That site accesses MCT via a GDS interface. The only way I can think of emulating this, is to perform queries on ITA Matrix specifying a maximum connection time with the /maxconnect flag and then performing some sort of ...

You can use google flight for this https://www.google.de/flights/#search;f=SHA,PVG;t=TIJ;d=2016-08-01;r=2016-09-25 Click on the Start Date and then click on the Price Graph. You could give a start date (1st Aug) and a duration (55 days). Then the price graph would give all possible sliding windows of length 55 days starting from 1st Aug.

Try with Kiwi. I have written about Kiwi in my answers here and here. You can not specify the flight numbers but you can specify the origin and destination as well as direct flights only which for your case of AM99 and AM98 boils down to the flight numbers you were looking for. Datewise, you can specify a date range of several month for both departure ...

I don't know about the UK, but in the US there are several apps like GasBuddy which specifically list fuel stations. While they're not sufficiently specific to show 'last stop' only, if you simply search for the airport or somewhere nearby and then look on the map, it will show you all fuel stations nearby - and then you can pick whichever is convenient to ...

@Dorothy gave a great link which I'd never noticed on imdb before. It appears that imdb users add locations that they recognise into imdb's database of filming locations, such as the one for the Bourne Supremacy. I thought I would take some of those locations and stick them into a google search to see if I could find other sites, e.g. this search. The first ...

This is one of the reasons I liked the Airline Route Mapper data. Say I want to find out all the routes with a destination of IOM: $ awk '$3=="IOM"' routes.dat BA LCY IOM * 0 S20 BE BHX IOM 0 DH4 BE LPL IOM 0 DH4 BE MAN IOM 0 DH4 E75 EI DUB IOM * 0 AT4 U2 LGW IOM 0 319 U2 LPL IOM 0 319 V9 BHD IOM 0 L4T V9 ...

Wikivoyage. Source (which I know you've already cited), but I've done the maths. Since the Wikivoyage total is 'live' and the Wikitravel total is Feb, we'll have to make some assumptions, but I believe them to be valid. Let's take the Wikitravel first. 13 years and 1 month, assuming the start of 2013. 2,541,627 over that time = 194,264ish edits a year. ...

I managed to contact a travel agent friend and he tells me there probably isn't a way to get a stop at the same price, because this is a difference with low-cost carriers (LCCs). That makes sense to me as I used to travel only with major airlines and always booked stopovers at the airline hubs, though I did it through travel agents in those days and the ...

Rules regarding sleeping in a car in a city will be defined by that city. Rules regarding sleeping in a car outside the city will be defined by either the county or state or both. As a general rule of thumb you will find very few cities that allow sleeping in a car on the streets. People get away with it by parking in less public spots, alleys, behind ...

Your only shot at seeing a dance recital would be in Chisinau. I'd doubt they're organized enough to advertise an upcoming show online. I think your best bet is to investigate when you're there. Cahul may have something as well, just because of the university. But, your best chance is walking around Chisinau or asking at your hotel.

According to flypeach fees and charges information: Fees and charges are quoted in the currency of your first point of origin This is typical for airline websites, but online travel agents often allow you to book in the currency of your choice. If you wish to view the price in an alternate currency, then you could install a web page currency ...

cycle.travel/map has full coverage of Western Europe (and North America), based on OpenStreetMap data. It aims to have the detailed bike-friendly knowledge of a custom planner like CycleStreets, but with the fast response and draggable UI of Google Maps, and is designed to be particularly suitable for touring. It's based on the fast OSRM routing software, ...

I do not know about a search engine for any specific type of planes, but Airbus just made public a website specifically for the A380. This is like any flight search engine, just only offering flights on board the A380. It does not necessarily give you the cheapest (the fare from Vienna to Jakarta starts at 900 euros in less than a month so it's not bad), ...

It's interesting that the company only attempts to criticise scambook. Perhaps they can comment on the following links also: Complaints Board - 40+ complaints over 3 years. Canadian Visa Review - Investigation into site and "testimonials" incomplaints - Multiple complaints Facebook page - Dozens of complaints, thousands of followers It's interesting that ...

I have found Wikipedia a particularly useful resource in this. They usually have a page for say Easyjet destinations and also the pages for airports list where airlines fly from there. It being Wikipedia is not updated automatically but then again, it's Wikipedia so it's reliable... enough.

How about the conveniently named http://www.airlineroutemaps.com/, which has an impressive list of over 800 airlines.

So, a bit of digging shows that this isn't a new question. It's been asked in several places around the Internet. One notable example is a site called MightyTravels, which, in an article about this exact problem, makes an interesting claim at the bottom: Did you know – with Mighty Travels Premium you can search 365 days of hotel rates sorted by deal ...

Tip: Prices might be higher than usual for the dates you've selected. Why not try again with these alternatives? Jul 12 - Jul 14 From €...

Minimum Connection Time (MCT) is not determined for an Airport or even an Airline. And really, MCT is not a thing, it's an internal figure used to validate itineraries.** So, there is no "List of Minimum Connection Times" for an airport or airline because that's not how it works. (Edited to avoid confusion with the OAG list which is based on flights as ...
