Default Need help finding best airfare deal

Hi gang,

A favor : I need help in finding AFFORDABLE airfare for my mom to return to her hometown in England after a 30 yr absence. She MUST fly on 7-29to Gatwick on a certain AA flight - as she is taking her sister back home also and her sisters flight is already booked ! (She wants to return to Lubbock on 8-12)

I have been looking for awhile now & cheaepest r/trip is $1165 ! (Yes, I know its high season) Is this the lowest we can expect to find ?
I have heard somewhere about a membership to get cheaper tickets, do any of u know anything about that ?

Let me in on any $$ saving devices I can use... thanks in advance !!

Steph

Steph:

Try www.qixo.com

Good old Orbitz

www.kayak.com
www.travelocity.com

Once you find a fare that you can live with go directly to the airlines online site and plug in the dates and times into their booking engine and you can usually get it for less.

Take care,
Mike

Steph:

Having to travel on a specific day,specific flight and specific airport definitely limits your options. I hope that you can find something that works out.

Take care,
Mike
