I brought this up and saw what you were talking about. The site actually uses Kayak.

I have had good luck in the past with cheapoair.com and kayak.

Not sure why this post was resurrected from the dead, but two notes:
1.) Discount airline sites are a myth, use the one with the best search engine to find the cheapest flight by time and be flexible. But each rate will be the same for all these sites and probably the cheapest place to book is at the airline site.
2.) I would recommend not clicking on a site advocated by a person with 1 or 2 posts. More than likely it is adspam, or put by someone who's sole purpose is not to our benifit. (and that's probably why this post was resurrected).

its all a crapshoot, you can't say one site is better than the other because different routes, different dates will all make a difference between each site. your best bet is going to something like cheapflights.com which allows you to look through all the available websites with one search. I however prefer to book through the airlines directly.

Anyway, just wondering if anyone knows of some other ones.....I want to say the name of it was something like airline_______something. Had the word airfare, airline, something like that .com. Any ideas?

Thanks!

Beware of baggage fees that they don't tell you about! Their price may LOOK lower, but may not be in reality.

kayak.com is the one I use the most. However for me just about 98% of the time just checking the airlines website directly is good enough. The prices wont be different between those websites and the airlines websites directly.

Best way to get cheap airline tickets? Either work for an airline or marry into one, I did
