Hi Kevin, first of all, thanks for using FL and using it as your “go to” site. That is what I am striving for so it’s nice to hear that. All that being said, it’s not perfect. There is still a lot of work to be done, like adding more API’s to get more flight data. Currently, I am using the Kiwi API, so technically you should be seeing the same prices on FL as on Kiwi.
I do want to add additional API’s in the very near future. I have used FL personally several times and from my experience, it isn’t always cheaper. But my suspicion is that no platform can claim that they are ALL THE TIME. It seems like the prices fluctuate a lot. For example: I wasn’t able to find the flight you found at $307 from NBO > ORY. I’m seeing higher prices. But we’re getting closer to those departure date, so who knows.
I did a quick search for NBO > ORY between Feb 4 to 11th on both FL and Kiwi. What is strange is that the price for a flight on the 8th is cheaper by $9 on FL. I have no idea why and I’m not seeing anything near $307.
Check this out,
I did try a few country to region searchs on FL to see what I could get. Rwanda to Europe, Uganda to Europe and Kenya to Europe. All the prices I am seeing are between $400-500.
To your point though, I will be adding new features and API’s in the very near future. So hopefully we’ll be able to see better deals.
Let me know if you manage to find a good deal (on any site). I’d be interested to compare with FL and try and understand why that is.
