from my understanding Flight-Equipment-Seat is read-only data that some staff of FBN maintains which is beyond the scope of this assignment. Further you will have some "SearchManager" (POJO-DAO) that hides the rather complex algorithm of doing the actual search. I also assume that this searching algorithm is on a more detailed level and not part of the architecture, therefore I just assume a complex searching transportation algorithm but will NOT show the algorithm itself (e.g. in the sequence diagaram). Is that an assumption I can make? However, I am not sure if the search uses Flight or Segment? If it searches on the Segment then Segment will also be read-only but I am not confident if that is the case.
Also, what class would use the SearchManager? Right now I am thinking about the Itinerary using the SearchManager. Would you show the SearchManager in the class diagram or only in the sequence and component diagrams?

Wouldn't the search algorithm be part of your business delegate?

Could be, but the BusinessDelegate would delegate it to te algorithm that I don't plan on to design/describe.
