cheap airline tickets

Поразительная штука — невидимая рука рынка. Всем нужны дешевые авиабилеты, но никто не предлагает сервис по подбору наиболее дешевых вариантов. Да, да, я знаю про всякие агрегаторы, но. Не спешите, подумайте: то, что нам впаривают как дешевые билеты, это сколько копеек за километр?
Вот смотрите, реально недорогие билеты:

Total distance is 47200km. PPKm was 0.02995 so just below the criteria. This means that the total ticket price was €1414

Сорок семь тысяч километров за менее чем полторы тысячи евро! Когда вы последний раз летали за такие деньги?

Читайте историю успеха:

It all started with a bet long time ago. One of my friends couldn't believe that it is actually possible nowadays to travel around the world with low-cost airlines.

Because the term low-cost airline is difficult to define we have agreed that we should bet on something easy to check - like the ticket price per kilometer. After some rough checks the bet was on: travel around the world, flying always in one direction (west or east) for less than €0.03 (3 euro cents) per kilometer (imagine Bologna-New York trip for less than €180).
TL;DR

I think I won. With some python help and many hours of coding I was able to find all the necessary tickets and stay below the price criterion. I have learnt a lot about airlines sales strategy... and something about ant colony optimization algorithm. The trip starts on November 15th, maybe you will meet me in the following months ;-)
