I feel "Travel" and "Internet" under "Industry" in the infobox should both be wikilinked (and Dot-com company probably makes sense for Internet), but Travel industry is just a redirect to Tourism -- and that doesn't seem to fit... Thoughts, anybody? --Wulf (talk) 00:45, 12 March 2009 (UTC)
I don't think they need to be wikilinked. Anyone on the internet knows what the internet is. Anyone on kayak.com's wikipedia page knows what travel is. Johnathlon (talk) 06:40, 27 December 2011 (UTC)
reverted to last version by JCam to address tone, ad, and coi issues noted by Nate1481
What is the correct name of the company, Kayak or Kayak.com. Both variants are used throughout the article. ehn (talk) 01:02, 10 January 2010 (UTC)
KAYAK is the correct name of the company. KAYAK.com refers to the flagship website of KAYAK. KAYAK's operations consist primarily of the flagship website KAYAK.com, which is part of a global family of websites that include kayak.co.uk, swoodoo.com, and checkfelix.com. These websites are referred to collectively as the KAYAK websites. Ehoa (talk) 21:02, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
Clarified naming issues and making names consistent.Johnathlon (talk) 06:48, 27 December 2011 (UTC)
I work at KAYAK and wanted to start a discussion about updating the wiki page to reflect more current information. Also, I am a long time user of Wikipedia but a novice editor/talk page contributor so appreciate comments / advice on how to facilitate the updates by the community. Some of the revisions are just a matter of updating out-of-date information but wanted to share with the community first to avoid conflict of interest issues and find out next steps. Really appreciate your attention.
-Revenue: Listed as private, but now disclosed in the KAYAK S1 financial statement. 2010 revenue was $171 million, a 51% increase from the 2009 revenue of $113 million (KAYAK S1 as of 5/27/2011, pg. 8)
-Employees: As of March 31, 2011, KAYAK had 133 employees (KAYAK S1 as of 5/27/2011, pg. 1)
-Subsidiaries: KAYAK operates websites and mobile applications under four brands: KAYAK, SideStep, swoodoo, and Checkfelix.com (KAYAK S1 as of 5/27/2011, pg. 60)
-Website: Travelpost.com should be removed from the website list. KAYAK sold it in March 2010 (KAYAK S1 as of 5/27/2011, pg. 74). Also, KAYAK operates local websites in 14 countries outside of the US. The main websites are: www.KAYAK.com, www.KAYAK.co.uk, swoodoo.com, checkfelix.com and SideStep.com.
All done. In the future, if it's just basic information like this you can go ahead and edit yourself as long as its sourced. There's only a problem if you try to insert favorable or promotional material. If there's something you're not sure about just post here. Thanks! NYyankees51 (talk) 17:46, 22 July 2011 (UTC)
