I wonder if this is AI, or half AI half human, like Facebook's M?

Ah i do think it's something well overdue i do think if they can get the Hello calendar feature right that's probably the best opportunity.. I would forecast the Hello email is probably going to be most used by travel agents and personal assistants looking to save time....

Huh, wonder what's new about this - the calendar piece seems new but the email suggestions seem along the lines of the emails I already get from them.

@dshan The email piece that is new is that you can include hello@hipmunk.com in the To: or CC: line of an email. So instead of explicitly selecting dates on a calendar or dropdown menu on the web or mobile app, you can "talk" directly to The Hipmunk. Try something like this: "I'd like to check on flights from San Francisco to Las Vegas from Dec 5 through Dec 8." It's great if you want to start a thread with friends or family about an upcoming trip, or if you are just trying to do a quick check for schedule/prices.

@alexisohanian cool new product. What's your role at Hipmunk these days? Is the email a "do things that don't scale" experiment?

Love Hipmunk. It's my go-to search engine for flights. It's unclear if they charge for this and how much. It seems like a time-saver for the frequent flyer.
