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)

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)
Updating Right Hand Side Info Box
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 Some of the revisions are just a matter of updating out-of-date information but wanted to share with the community first to avoid conflict of interest issues and find out next steps.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.

- 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)
