Finding Airfare Options

Oil Prices are going up. Airfares are going up too (some say faster than oil).

Looking for the best airfare?

One of my favorite starting places is ITA Software.

They wrote the Orbitz booking engine.

This site is where they try new ideas. You know it’s unbiased since they don’t sell any tickets, just display the fares.

Check out their help pages. They have a “route language” that lets you specify all sorts of things (like connecting through a certain city on a certain airline).
