Some airlines (Southwest and Jetblue) have made choosing flights an almost pleasant experience by clearly presenting available flights and costs — most other airlines still suck. Hipmunk is a new flight search tool which applies some simple design techniques to aggregate options clearly. I also love that they have a “sort by agony” option which combines price, duration, and layovers. (via FlowingData)
