    Ordering Plane Tickets Online

    The only time I did anything regarding this online, I used my American Express points (as frequent flier miles) to pay for the trip.

    Now, I have to plan a trip to Phoenix in a month, and am looking for suggestions on ordering plane tickets online. Hotels would be taken care of seperately, and I'm only looking for a one-way ticket.

    (And yes, I know of Priceline, Travelocity, etc.)

    We recently used Priceline for a trip to Cali for my son, $250 RT!

    There are so many to choose from.........

    I've used Travelocity to find the fairs, then once I got the good fair, I got the same quote from the airline directly, sometimes a bit cheaper. Used a CapitalOne Mastercard for the purchases.

    So far, Travelocity has yet to give me a one-way flight from NY to AZ for less than $1k.

    I'll keep trying with it I guess.

    We just recently purchased tickets for my wife from Portland, OR to St Louis. It was $158 for the tickets and then like $52 for all the freaking taxes and fuel surcharges. The security surcharges I don't mind paying for, but why do they still have that fuel tax now that oil's cheap again? (Why? Because they can! ) Anyway, we got our tickets from Yahoo Travel.

    are you searching for round trip tickets too? sometimes they are actually cheaper than one way - I think that round trip tickets are discounted more than one way, but I dunno. Might be worth a check.

    the only one i know of is the one you already know about, which is priceline...my dad had used them for a one way flight before and he got a REALLY good price on his ticket. it was like $60 for a one way ticket from atlanta, ga to tampa, fl.

    Today I purchased a RT ticket to Denver. Travelocity and Priceline were about $70 cheaper than directly with the Airline but those other services don't give you the option of dearting/arrival times (they give you a window of times). Since the lines at airports are getting longer and security checks slow things down I didn't want to risk getting a ticket where the flight leaves at 6am and then have to get up at 3 just to get to the airport with enough time to accomplish the security checkin.

    I chose to book directly with the airline. The extra $70 was well spent since I'll know my times and not be spinning a "ruelette wheel" and hoping for decent times
