Hey guys,
Give me your thoughts on this, following my meltdown, I thought of a new gui design, basically it would be mvc, but the look and feel would behave like this, after you boot up, your only page in the search page, with a table of all the flights on the bottom, then when you click on a flight you get the details of the flight you clicked on and the chance to book the flight.
Does this sound to simple? Should I stick with the multiple screens that I had before?

Either way is fine as long as you use one Facade or controller. I had multiple screens in a JTabbedPane with controllers for each screen and the JFrame. I lost about 4 points in GUI. I know people scored full marks by keeping it simple in one screen.

Simplicity is best, from what I hear.
I have three panels and a menu bar in a single frame.
Left panel = search
Right panel = book
Bottom scroll panel = search results table.
I use JOptionPane for booking and exiting.
The search panel updates the table, and clicking on the results table will update the booking panel.
Ugly as it gets, but functional. I don't think that there are beauty points given.
I guess I'll find out when I submit it next week.
