TravelCodex, ITA Matrix has made a few changes.
For starters, the site has gone through a cosmetic update.
ITA Matrix Has a New and Improved Look. ♫ I Feel Prettyyy, Oh So Prettyyy♫
You can also easily search by price-per-mile. Some other not-so-good changes include:
Slower search speed
Limited to a 150 mile radius when you search for nearby airports that must be individually selected
However, in general the site remains largely the same. Check out my
