About us

Our mission is to help you fly better

Routehappy knows that all flights are not created equal, so we're combing hundreds of data sources to build Flightpad, our proprietary Flight Product Attribute Database that powers our new breed of flight search. We want to help you easily find and buy the happiest flights for the lowest price, every time you fly. Check it out.

Happiness Scores

Our one-of-a-kind Happiness Scores reveal shorter flights with better planes, seats, amenities and flyer ratings. We've built a big system that fairly grades a myriad of Happiness Factors that matter to flyers, including 25 seat types, 20 entertainment options, 55 seat configurations, Wi-Fi, and more. We're continuously updating data on our Focus Airlines about whom we've gone deep in research.


Flyer Ratings

Routehappy is the place to share and discover tips & tricks for your trip. Real flyers share ratings, tips, details and photos about their flight and airport experiences — and we crunch our data to create Flight-specific Flyer Ratings. Find hidden security lines, tips about connecting in an airport, what the seats will be like, and more. Don't forget to get our free Routehappy Reviewer iPhone app to share and discover tips while you fly!


We're a team of passionate online travel veterans who know the industry inside and out — and are ready to spread a whole lot of happiness to flyers. Before boarding Routehappy, we played key roles in the early days of Site59, Priceline, Jetsetter, Orbitz, Hotwire, Kayak, TripIt, IgoUgo‚Äôs RateFinder, Gilt & more.
