  1. OTG is horrendously overpriced and mediocre (a great combo) at EWR so at least now maybe it will be just overpriced and good

  2. I work in the software world, the DL sorting issue is clearly not a bug. There’s nothing broken. Rules surrounding how the dev team coded the sort of flights is where the problem lies, and someone knowingly decided that sorting by taxes/fees (actual cost) was the correct way to sort (or even better is if there is a defined business rule about what determines ‘cost’ of a ticket).

    I’m not a fan of DL but calling this a ‘bug’ is incorrect. I’d call this a future enhancement request of the UI/UX team…

  3. @sice/Sam Krik – I tend to use “bug” and “quirk” interchangeably, although you’re right that “bug” has a more specific meaning when you’re talking about coding a webpage. Still, it seemed odd enough that it was worth pointing out.
