Lightning is a very user-friendly system that gets better and better with each update. The layout makes it easy to use and navigate and allows me to book flights, accommodation, rail all in one go. It really is the whole package.

The Lightning online booking tool is excellent. It was easy to learn and saves me a lot of time when booking travel for my team. I like how it clearly displays all of the available flight options and various booking classes.
