Just a question about how flashy the gui should be?
Right now, I basically have 2 panels 1 with 3 combo boxes for searches and a search flight button, and another booking screen with all available information for booking.
No graphics, just plain java stuff, did anyone else do this? I saw some posts about graphics and wasn't sure if I should try to incorpoate some into my view.
Thanks,
-Matt

I would suggest that you focus more on functionality rather than flash. Don't add too many bells and whistles but make sure you follow the basic look and feel guidelines. If you want to use graphics, you might want to take a look at the Java Look and Feel Graphics Repository

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
