Thread: What Airline search engines are you using

    What Airline search engines are you using

    I was not very happy with my old ones I used like Orbitz, Travelocity, Expedia was always my favorite because I could book the best flights with 2 different airlines so I could update my miles plus must of the big ones give you 7% cashback but I am not sure how easy it is to put in you FF #. Bing at one time was great but now just getting to the search engine is a pain

    What are you using to search for flights

    I generally don't use an airline search engine. I just go to the website of the airline I want to use. Or, I'll use something like travelocity to see what airlines fly where I want to go, then book directly from there.

    Mostly Alaska Airlines because we use the companion tickets and air miles. Occasionally I go to secret flying or sky auction. I haven't bought anything from secret flying yet but have bought a few things including a Hawaiian Cruise from sky auctions.

    I used Sky Auction years ago when they first came out but I stopped for I think they had hidden fees

    I use Kayak to get the general idea, then go to the airline's own website. I think Kayak actually bumps you straight over to the airline website when you click on the price anyway.

    Several of the boards on www.flyertalk.com can point you to great airline deals. The best board is the Milage Run board in the forum, but it takes a knowledge of airport codes to use it most effectively.

    Air France also has great sale fares from time to time so it is good to get on their email list. For example, they recently had a sale open for two days with a number of European destinations in the $500-600 range RT all-in. The key with Air France is to be able to leave from an Air France gateway city. I use Washington-Dulles for that purpose and Amtrak to get to Washington from North Carolina. I can leave my car at the train station for free. The rail fare is often less than what it would cost to park at the airport.

    When I was working in Europe, I liked to use www.skyscanner.com but they are somewhat hit and miss for flights originating in the US.
