Sometimes I see a quote like this, and it makes me think maybe there is another side to this story:

“Online searches for flights during the week after Christmas dropped by 42 percent compared to the previous year.”

Sure the economy is having a negative effect on business, but this story is not referring to a 42% drop in sales. Maybe the other side to the story is that booking engines and websites in general are getting better at displaying the information, and consumers are finding it easier to get what they want with less searching?
