Hi René -

I'm not the best person to answer specific questions about BravoAir - but I can tell 
you that it has been upgraded recently for OWL-S 1.1, and I think a number of 
improvements have been made.  You might want to look here:


to see if your concerns might have already been addressed.

Instead it has a large number of input parameters so I wonder whether a requestor would need additional details if she already head the two airports, the departure and arrival time as well as the roundtrip. Maybe someone from the authors could comment on that.
