The Sabre Dev Studio Flight API Ruby Library is a Ruby Gem for the Sabre Dev Studio Flight API. With this, developers can access the Travel Platform Services Flight API.
With Sabre APIs, developers can incorporate new shopping and intelligence capabilities and show users things from the crowds at a destination to whether or not the time is right to book for travelling.
Structured data has an open platform, thanks to a new startup aptly named Factual. At first glance, it seems like Excel on the web.
