Duffel has generated a fair amount of buzz since it came on the scene in 2017.

In part, this was due to a strategy to try and keep "stealthy" during its early phase of building a next-generation airline distribution platform.

It eventually emerged into the public eye with a sizeable investment round (it has since raised over $56 million in capital) and a number of important partners, including American Airlines and British Airways.

Steve Domin and the founding team used the quiet period to learn as much about the complex world of airline ticketing and retailing - a process that involved a lot of conversations and head-scratching over why previous attempts had failed to overhaul a process that has taken decades to develop.

Domin joins us as the latest guest on How I Got Here.
