The new feature, called FlexSearch, is designed to save time for people who are searching for the best deal and are undecided about their dates of travel.
Instead of conducting separate searches for each possible date of travel, a person could search on a month`s worth of flights on 450 airlines in one query. FlexSearch checks for flight availability at the same time.

Orbitz claims the new feature is exclusive to Orbitz and is the first of its kind in the online travel industry.
