Kayak Search API Update

The flight and hotel search APIs have been out for about a week and a half. We had a few glitches but they are now fixed. We've received feedback from several users that are trying it out.

One particular issue that came up several times was a missing parameter in the API specification: you need to include the "_sid_" parameter in EVERY request once you
receive the session ID from the initial get session request. A fix to the API doc is in the pipeline, and should go out on our next patch this week.

One user reported a problem with the quota system (1000 searches/day by default). If you are experiencing any quota problems, please let us know.

First: I love the simple search APIs.

Second: I don't know whether the original quota issue was fixed, but I received a quota error on my third or fourth search attempt. I got the following response to my search attempt: "search quota exceeded. contact kayak.com to get more quota."

Lauren,

Please contact me via the feedback link or billo at kayak daught com and I'll fix your quota; it's probably broken.
