I agree about the occasional sales for international travel. When I lived in Denver, British Airways was my main airline and I got some good deals.
But also there are some carriers which are consistently cheaper, as long as you book far ahead (and they happen to fly out of city that is convenient for you.)
We got a great deal on Condor Airlines (from Orlando to Frankfurt, Germany) last summer.
I can't believe how much the airlines tack on in taxes and surcharges, though.
I am glad I did a lot of traveling before, when the dollar was strong.

I use sidestep.com or kayak.com best prices I have ever found. and I usually check ALL of the sites when booking my tickets, including the individual airlines.

no one's mentioned jetblue !!! I don't know the website for it offhand, it's probably something like ..... JetBlue lol. It's super cheaper than others, because they don't necessarily fly to EVERY airport, but they flew me from CA, to DC for like 200 bucks with only like 4 days notice. that's awesome!

For wherever jetblue won't fly you, I use cheap tickets.

I look on sidestep.com, then I use that info to go directly to the airline.

I have used "orbitz" and for me it's the best!
