Coding a decision tree structure is one thing, but the problem I see with generating code for it is making it work in the general sense - a similar problem with state machines. As in, sure I can make one of these things, but it will be suitable toward one particular task - like your airfare example. I don't see a lot of opportunity to generalize the algorithm. As I said, I ran into the same problem with state machines.
