What they are saying...
There are two critical components that are written in Python, without which the system couldn't exist, Kelley said. The first is the inventory controller, which keeps track of what seats are available on what planes.
However,"we think of the most core [component] as the piece that takes reservation requests and records them in a database," Kelley said. "That's written in LISP. But the next most critical thing is the thing that's maintaining inventory levels on airplanes, and that's written in Python."

Python is a programming language that lets you work more quickly and integrate your systems more effectively. You can learn to use Python and see almost immediate gains in productivity and lower maintenance costs.
Python runs on Windows, Linux/Unix, Mac OS X, and has been ported to the Java and .NET virtual machines.
Python is free to use, even for commercial products, because of its OSI-approved open source license.
