@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 ...

Many cities and counties are passing laws designed to solve the homeless problem by motivating the homeless to leave the area. One of the methods has been to make it illegal to sleep in cars or other places. It is my opinion (and usually the courts agree) that these laws violate the homeless person's constitutional rights. However, that doesn't stop 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 ...

You best bet is to make a reservation based on most of the itinerary you want. Just Hold it, don't pay. Then, call the airline and ask if the fare rules allow a stopover at the hub instead of a connection. If those particular rules don't, then ask the agent if there are similar discount fares that do allow a stopover.

On http://www.fly4free.com/ you can sign-up for an E-mail newsletter of heavily discounted flights. Currently its only possible to specify countries you are flying from, and it will send you all deals to any destination from that country. But its only informing about unusually cheap deals.

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 ...

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), ...

Like the above person said, only be totally inflexible on the times you're willing to fly out and land. Specifying the airport (not choosing "all airports") and specifying the airline couldn't hurt, either.

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 ...

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

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 ...

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 ...

A quick google search found me an 'what is on' magic site. And in the list there I recognized a show in London, which was recently mentioned on BBC TV. Here is a link to a booking site where you can book tickets for that show. An other way in might be finding a magician you would like to see and go to his/her website and see where they perform. Like the ...

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 ...

Booking.com has this functionality. Search for hotels in a given city, then sort by price: Booking.com will then offer you to exclude shared rooms:

Why not get your girlfriend to fly to Boston - Aeromexico do a direct flight - and meet her at Logan? In September, that flight arrives at 9:35pm, so you could get the 10:40pm British Airways flight to London that same evening. However, 55 minutes to change planes is quite tight, so if you would prefer more time for the changeover, she could get the same ...

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.

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. ...

if I use [http://www.booking.com] for example for the next weekend in Paris 14.-16.7. (14.7. Bastille day) I get the following warning: Paris is a top choice on our site with travelers for your selected dates (59% reserved). 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 €...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

I use http://www.flightconnections.com/ for this. It's map based an you can click on any airport (or a near by one) and see immediately all scheduled flights including airlines and day-per-week flown. CAVEAT: "Direct" is not the same as "Non-Stop". Many airlines now combine to more or less random legs, give it the same flight number and call it "direct". ...

Kayak features a convenient map through their Routes page: All flights shown on the map are direct.

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.


10

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

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.

Copying Gayot's answer from the comments: There's no such public source, it goes against the DPA. The only possibilities are the notification in your email archive and your account at visa4uk (which may have been expunged by now).

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

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 ...

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 ...

@chx has already mentioned Skypicker (now Kiwi.com) but a bit more powerful I find azair which has very powerful search options (see the advanced options), including choice of return and departure day, length of stay, period within which the trip should happen and a range of departure and arrival airports, up to the option "Take me anywhere" which is what ...

As specified in my answers here and here, azair has very powerful search options (see the advanced options), including choice of return and departure day, length of stay, period within which the trip should happen and a range of departure and arrival airports, up to the option "Take me anywhere" which is what you are looking for. A similarly powerful ...

An answer five years later - and by now refering to downloading maps to smartphone: Baidu Maps The best map for China IMHO is from Baidu, and this article describes an option to download maps for offline usage and how to use it. If you, like me, don't want to give the app every possible permission on your phone, an alternative is: Maps.Me I have made ...

Roadtrippers might be what you are looking for. You enter the route you want to take, choose a distance from that route and the site will find things of interests according to what categories you selected. (Note that I am not aware if it works well outside the US. It's possible that the site won't find points of interest.)

T-Mobile in the US offers free data and 20c/min calls in most countries, but you need postpaid account, i.e. have US SSN or ITIN and pass credit check.

The interface is a bit inconvenient and it has a limit on the number of routes shown simultaneously, but you can do it on Kayak's list of airlines. Click on an airline and you'll get a map of where it flies. E.g. a map for Easyjet: You can then filter by a specific city to get a map of which routes are available there, e.g. for Easyjet in Prague: In ...

Between the Star Alliance route map, the oneworld route map, and the SkyTeam route map, you can see the vast majority of existing flights. For any given airline, just choose the map corresponding to its alliance. And since most itineraries will have all segments within the same alliance, you probably will need to use only one of these maps.

You could try openflights. I'm not sure if the data is complete, but a map for easyjet: And Indigo (India LCC):

Here are some other tricks: flightaware is a great service to track flights. If you are not sure of the flight number, just enter the departure location and the arrival, and it will give you a listing of all flights, their times, and their current status. If the flight is airborne, you may also be able to track it. Another option is to enter a query into ...

This site (rfi.it) gives arrivals and departures in a form similar to what I think you are expecting. Sample output for Roma Termini: There's also a list of regional timetables in PDF format here: http://www.trenitalia.com/tcom/Informazioni/Orari-regionali-in-versione-pdf e.g.

You can do this through the Czech IDOS website. Simply enter the name of the station in the From field, after switching the language in the bottom-right corner. Optionally choose the date and click on SEARCH. You'll get the full list of trains departing from each of Rome's train stations: Clicking on an individual train will show you it's full schedule:...

I had a good look on the Trenitalia site, both in the English version and in the google translate version of the original to my own language, (Dutch) and did not find any links or other indications of 'per station' listings. But I did find this page, which promises times per line rather than per station. If like me you do not read Italian, you will need a ...
