Default Has anyone booked flights thru Cheapoair?

I have been researching airfare prices for our cruise and found a deal that seems too good to be true. I was wondering if any had any experiences with this website.

I love to use cheapoair for research. It helps me find the best flight times and airlines. I would love to book a flight with them except that after you've paid all their fees and stuff you can usually buy the tickets for less directly from the airlines. For example a few weeks ago I found out that I needed to buy four RT tickets from IND, MDW or ORD to MSY. I tried several other websites including ATA, Southwest, Airtran, Expedia, etc.. tickets were averaging between $300 and up per person.
I then went to cheapoair and tried several combinations and it came up with a RT airfare of $109. Well thats hard to beat right? But once you added all their stuff onto the price it was nearly $200 pp. So I saw the deal they quoted was through American Airlines, I went directly to american's website and specified the time slot of the flights of the cheapo's quote and it came to $128 RT but after taxes and fees it came to around $150 and change. Using it as a research tool has saved me a ton of legwork. Especially when looking for last minute flights.

Thanks. I did just what you said and it was cheaper direct. I found rt air from Chicago to Miami with 1 stop for $159.60 a person roundtrip.

Great! Glad it worked out for you! Some of those deals would be hard to find without cheapo. If they would just cut their fees down a bit, I would give them more business.
