Finding Really Cheap Airline Tickets

Advertisement
Most of us don't fly on one particular airline enough to really rack up serious miles, So if you don't have 100,000 frequent flyer miles and still want to save a few dollars, here's what you can do.

Many people know that they can book their own flights using the popular discount airfare sites to get cheap airline tickets. What they don't know is that their are some less known sites that allow you to find much better deals than the big ones.

Even less known is how to get free airline tickets which yes is possible if your willing to be bumped and wait an hour or two for the next flight.

Airline Tickets Online has more information on how to successfully get bumped for a free airline ticket.

All major airlines feed their available seats and prices into four central reservation systems that are owned by various airlines. The systems are Apollo, Sabre, WorldSpan and Galileo. Airlines then change their prices based on demand. If a certain flight is selling well, the price will increase. If another flight has no takers, the fare will drop until the airline gets some. As a result, fares and inventory are changing every minute. Since the four are updated at different times throughout the day; this is why you'll sometimes find better fares on one site over another. Demand also explains why it is almost always cheaper to fly on a weekend or at odd hours.

The airlines also price their seats by dividing seats on each flight into several price ranges then set aside a certain number of discounted tickets for advertising.

If you happen to login at the right time you may be able to find cheap airline tickets. This is the reason some of the more sophistcated airline ticket search tools were put together.

Finding cheap flights is not a big deal but the main question comes, where to get it from.

http://www.jetradar.com is the only place I go to search flights now, after consistently finding them to find the best deals. They don't 'promote' any particular airline, but are totally transparent, plus they include the extra fees and taxes that you know you have to pay but many other 'comparison' sites leave off. This is helpful, as you can make a fair assessment of which is the best price. Reply to this
