Cheap Airfare?  
Pondering vacation plans.

Anybody know any sites offering cheap flights within the continental US that you could recommend?

You want to go somehwere?

EDIT: Okay, that sounded dumb. I meant - are you going somehwere soon or why that sudden enquiry about flights? ;-)

You know I've been looking at routes and vacation plans for over a month now. Just trying to figure out what's possible and what's not.

Yeah. I was just wondering whether this was still regarding Texas in March or if you'd decided to spontaneously go somewhere in October or maybe to Chicago Con or something :-)

When I was planning my trip, I used priceline.com quite a bit, it gives you a nice idea of what airlines are cheapest for your route. I sometimes found that going to the website of the airline would give you a slightly lower price than the one listed on priceline though.

Were are you going?

Sweet, thank you so much for the tip. I was using my usual site but was a bit shocked by the prices, so I'm totally checking this. Was actually thinking of you yesterday... what would Ditte do? Haha :D

Well, I'd like to do a week of Texas and take a detour to L.A. on the way back. Maybe. Still juggling numbers.

Thanks again ♥

Haha, that's awesome :)

Sounds very cool. I hope it'll be okay if I pack myself in your suitcase and come along :P
You know where in Texas you want to go? I can definitely recommend Austin, I loved it there.

Yay traveling! :)

A few sites to at least check out:
- cheaptickets.com
- airfarewatchdog.com
- farecompare.com

I will say that I haven't used any of these sites personally, but I've seen the last two recommended on the travel sections of news websites quite frequently. I've looked at all three of these myself, and they're pretty helpful for figuring out which airline offers the best bet--even if you decide not to buy through them. As was mentioned here, too, if you go to the actual website of the airline themselves, that sometimes cuts costs.

Good luck. I hope everything works out for you. :)

Sorry about all the edits. My coding is not with it this morning. :/

Eee, thanks so much. I knew about the first, but didn't know the other two sites you linked to.

Thank you, hope it'll all work out, too :D And you have fun setting down on European ground soon :D Excited?

I've bought flights through cheaptickets before, so the site is good.

Thanks for the input. Been surfing airfare since and it's a very good place to do that.

Spirit Airlines is about the cheapest you'll find. I fly with them sometimes :)

Haha, for a second there I thought you're joking ;P Spirit Airlines is just a way too cool name. Alas, they don't serve any of the airports I'd need. But thanks very much for the tip.

You can check Yahoo travel, Delta, Southwest is really good.

Just google it. That's the easiest way to do it :D
