Redesigning the booking experience

To redesign the customer end-to-end booking experience online. Implement responsive web design and e-commerce best practices. Reinventing how customers purchase travel, by reducing the number of decisions.

Business value: To increase booking conversion.



The project was seen through the lens of 3 different personas.
Design decisions made were based on their motivations to help personalize the experience.



Flight Results

Flight results was optimized to include overall UX best practices. Through research and observing recorded videos of customers using the platform (Full story) we were able to get more insight and create a streamlined experience. Below is the legacy system and some highlighted painpoints.


The top-level flow of how a user would funnel through the booking experience. A user can enter through the homepage or enter through an OTA (online travel agency, kayak, google flights)


12 qualitative and 50 quantitative mobile first tests were conducted to learn which of the two UX flows were the most usable for customers. We wanted to learn:

• Are customers able to understand the differences in fare classes?
(Blue Basic, Blue, Blue Extra and Mint)

• Does each fare class treatment provided clearly explain benefits and inclusions?

• Do users have enough information to understand if it suits their needs?

Filter Navigation

Insights from user testing

Filter navigation was the preferred UX design direction among users

• Offered the ability to compare price changes and understand what each fare class offered simultaneously

• Customers were able to learn more about each fare in context to how they navigated the screen, keeping customers oriented. 

• Customers described it as “clean”, “concise”, “easy to navigate” and “efficient”.


Flight Results UX improvements

1. Persistent Booker - Allows users to access and change flights quickly and easily within the flow
2. Hero Marquee - Visual interest / branded moment
3. Filter navigation (Filter panel) - From price / lowest price allows users to compare fares and choose what’s right for them
4. Value props for fare class - explanation allowing users to know what class they are on

5. Flight card details - We streamlined content and flight information easier to read and implemented, Flight tag recommendations
6. Fare upsells - Mint mode. A module to get users to upgrade and spend more!

Other features in the experience

Payment and confirmation

We cleaned up payment and made the process much more seamless, allowing for JetBlue credit card upsells, options for payment methods, and travel credit. Confirmation gave a sense of reward to the user and the ability to manage their booking all from one place.
