Frontier Airlines Reduces Look-to-book Ratio By 64% Through Imperva - Imperva Industrial IoT Case Study
Frontier Airlines Reduces Look-to-book Ratio By 64% Through Imperva
Frontier Airlines, a low-cost air carrier, was facing a significant challenge with its online booking engine. The company noticed a higher than expected look-to-book ratio, indicating that many website visitors were viewing flights but not making purchases. Upon further investigation, it was discovered that 50 to 60% of the traffic was not legitimate but was generated by bot operators scraping pricing data and artificially inflating the look-to-book ratio. This influx of bots not only skewed Frontier’s ratio but also resulted in potentially large overage fees as the company partners with a third-party reservation system that requires it to meet a certain look-to-book ratio. Additionally, the bot visits skewed site analytics, hindering the company’s ability to optimize the customer journey and maximize both revenue and customer experience. Frontier’s previous attempts to combat bots, such as manual IP blocking, proved to be time-consuming and ineffective as bot sophistication had dramatically increased.
