Skyscanners from Switzerland

Looking to book a flight to Japan mid next next year for a holiday.

Went to the Skyscanners website and it defaulted to English, GBP and my location as the UK before I had checked the boxes. I search for flights and there were about 5 pages of options.

When I realised that it had defaulted, I changed the currency and my location to CH.....and then there was only ONE flight available.

What is that about? Of course, the prices would be different for all the usual Swiss reasons, but just no availability on the system even for Swiss (airline)? Is there something I'm missing?

Re: Skyscanners from Switzerland

No idea. I have selected random dates 1 Jul till 1 Aug 2013 departure from Zurich to random city of Tokyo and it showed several alternative flights. No direct flights though.

Perhaps something to do with default location settings? Check skyscanner's billing country, language and currency.

Having said that I am browsing on iPhone using Orange 3G from Warsaw
