It was worth even to check what flight comparison apps do better and learn something from them as well. Eg, SkyScanner is the best app in its field, with a simple and great flow for multi city trips.

Opportunities

From the conducted research we were able to find the common features, and what others do right and wrong. Now, we can compare this to the Aer Lingus app to find the areas we can improve to keep up with its competitors.

    • Search for multi-trip inside the app
    • World map with possible destinations
    • Multi-trip monthly view
    • Checkout/purchase with Apple Pay/Google Pay
      (https://www.alternativeairlines.com/apple-pay)

The analysis also showed that it would be nice to include an emotional touch to our app if we want to be better than our competitors and to get closer to our customers.

 

Big Ideas

Having all the features in our mind, we decided to place everything in one place and call this board “Our Big Ideas”. Even though we won’t be able to make all of these features available in or app, it will help us to see them all in one place and focus on the most important ones which would solve the problems our users had with Aer Lingus app.
