BOMST - More money for Farecast
Thanks to Techcrunch - fare compare with a twist site Farecast had raised a monster sized $12.1 million in their second round of funding. Still in beta (though it is of course very cool to be in beta), Farecast's claim to fame is that as well as providing fare meta-search it aims to predict whether or not fares will go up or down. Currently covers departures from 75 US cities (all domestic results). Great idea and with more than $20mm raised so far, there is plenty more to be spent making this come true. The VP of Marketing and Product Development has an interesting blog of his own. While it is updated only frequently, you will find a link in my blog roll on the right hand side (or here).
