Handling data requests directed to a database environment including a first platform, a second platform and a control unit. The control unit receives a request, determines a prepared result corresponding to the data request and compares an update indicator of the determined prepared result with a threshold value. In response to the comparison, the control unit either retrieves the prepared result from the second platform and returns it or retrieves an updated version of the at least one prepared result from the first platform, updates the prepared result in the second platform and the associated update indicator, and returns the updated version of the prepared result. The update indicator is defined by (1 - acc) t, wherein acc is a probability that the associated prepared result is valid and t as an age of the associated prepared result.

Systems, methods, and computer program products for tracking baggage using images. An image of a bag being checked-in may be captured and uploaded to a baggage tracking system. The system may store the image in a baggage tracking database, and associate the stored image with records identifying the bag and/or a travel itinerary for which the bag is being used. The system may characterize images in the database by identifying keypoints in the image, and extracting descriptors from the keypoints. In response to receiving an image of an unidentified bag from a user device, the baggage tracking system may compare descriptors extracted from the received image to descriptors extracted from images stored in the database. Stored images having a sufficient number of matching descriptors may be transmitted to the user device for display to a user. The user may view the images to confirm the identity of the unidentified bag.


Systems, methods, and computer program products for implementing a dynamic free-text search database. First data is generated for the dynamic free-text search database that represents a first relationship including a first keyword, a first trip, and a first weight value. A plurality of free-text search requests are received, and a second weight value for the first relationship is calculated based on the free-text search requests. The second weight value differs from the first weight value. The first data is transformed into second by inserting the second weight value into the first data such that the first relationship includes the second weight value.

Systems, methods, and computer program products for tracking baggage. An electronic tag (e-tag) may be attached to or integrated with a bag, and may include a globally unique identifier (GUID). A user may access a database to link the GUID with the bag, a passenger, and an itinerary by associating selected records in the database containing data relating to the GUID, bag, passenger and itinerary. Agents for the carrier may access the data in the records by transmitting queries to the database that include the GUID. The GUID may be retrieved by reading the e-tag with a user device, such as a smart phone or dedicated scanning device. The GUID may also be used to generate lost-bag and found-bag records in the database, and for matching these records to find lost bags. The database may also contain images of the bag that is associated with the GUID.


Systems and methods for managing an airport passenger processing system. The system includes a computing device and a peripheral device at an airport, a peripherals interface in communicative connection with the peripheral device and operable to execute a second client application, and a network outside the airport. The network includes a virtualization server for virtualizing an application for a first client application executed by the computing device and a peripherals manager in communication with the virtualization server. The first client application is configured to establish a first communication channel with the virtualization server for communication with an application virtualized on the virtualization server. The second client application is configured to establish a second communication channel with the peripherals manager. At least part of the network is configured to store an association between the first and second communication channels to associate the peripheral device with the computing device.

Systems, methods, and computer program products that determine yield for units of perishable inventory, such a seats on a flight. Yield for future sales of seats is determined based on a weighted average of prices for used tickets and unused tickets for flights that have departure dates in the future. To increase the amount of data on which to base the yield, simulated reservation records are generated based on expected demand for flights during an open reservation window. Proxy tickets are then generated for the simulated reservation records and for reserved but unbooked reservation records. These proxy tickets are stored in a database of proxy tickets that is updated periodically to reflect changes in available inventory, pricing, and reservation context. The prices of the proxy tickets are then used to enrich booked ticket and flown ticket data for calculating yield.


Systems, methods, and computer program products for forming a travel group. A first travel record containing a travel reservation for a first social network user is stored in a database. The travel reservation is published as a trip publication on a social networking system. An inquiry related to the trip publication is received via the social networking system from a client device associated with a second social network user. In response to receiving the inquiry, the one or more processors generate one or more offers for a second trip based on data in the first travel record. A second travel record containing the one or more offers is stored in the database. A link between the first travel record and the second travel record is assigned in a booking folder stored in the database. The one or more offers are communicated to the client device of the second social network user.

Methods, systems, and computer program products for interacting with a social media networking system. Information related to occurrence of an event impacting travel may be received from a travel data source at one or more computers. In response to receiving the information related to the event, the one or more computers trigger a request to the social media networking system to return one or more first posts related to the event.


Methods, systems, and computer program products associating a user of a social media networking system with a customer of a travel provider. In response to receiving a post published by the user on the social media networking system, a travel data source is queried to identify a customer profile based on information relating to the user or to information related to a content of the post. The post by the user and information from the customer profile are displayed on the display. An answer to the social media post is formulated based on the information from the customer profile.

Methods and computer programs for preventing double processing of a repeated request from a client in a transaction session are provided. A first request is received from the client over the computer network and processed. When a repeated request is received from the client, response data prepared in response to the first request are assigned to the repeated request. A response to the repeated request is returned to the client comprising the response data prepared in response to the first request.
