The Feature I Was Missing:

Skyscanner, no doubt is an awesome flight searching Windows 8 app. But, there was a feature which I was missing. After searching the flights, the app should give an option to email the details to anybody or our self. But, I did not find the option to do the same. However, the app developers says that it provides the feature to email the flight details, but unfortunately I did not find any option like that.
