As the Project Manager Nabil Naghdy explained in a release on Monday, "After selecting a specific flight, a notification may appear letting you know when the current fare is expected to expire and how much you can save if you book now. For example, this flight to San Diego is likely to cost more in eight hours - and you would likely save $87 if you book before then".
