  5. 5. About Let me think The Let me think service is a new all-in-one, booking-engine agnostic platform developed by Airsavings that merges the burgeoningworld of social media with economically viable (and vital) ancillary revenue opportunities. Rather than resorting to old-fashioned word-of-mouth tactics to discuss one s travel plans or secure booking through another channel, Let methink combines both functions into a single experience - through Facebook. Populated with more than 900 million users (and soon-to-be a billion!) Facebook currently reaches one-seventh of the global population.  That is a lot of potential passengers and eyeballs! 3 *For 2010, IdeaWorks estimates airlines will generate a total of €18.4 billion of worldwide ancillary revenues.
  6. 6. How does it work? "Let me think" allows a potential passenger to log into their Facebook profile within the booking path, where they are then taken to a "passengers details" page. Once there, the traveller will find their first and last name and email address automatically pre-populated and extracted from their Facebook profile…A world first for the airline industry!Travellers also have the freedom to select a fare that meets their budget and itinerary, and havethe ability to place the fare on hold while they connect with friends and family, relaying travel plans and sharing their flight details in the process. They can also sneak a peek at profiles of other travellers that share their same flight plans. In addition, they can share the competitive fare on their Facebook wall for others to take advantage of.Airsavings is now gearing up for its nextlevel deployment, where passengers will beable to send discount coupons directly fromthe airlines confirmation page to theirFacebook friends – creating a viral experience and extra income for airlines. 4 *For 2010, IdeaWorks estimates airlines will generate a total of €18.4 billion of worldwide ancillary revenues.
