Use the Web to shop for cheaper flights


  • Expedia allows you to shop for the lowest airfare available. It also will send you rates by e-mail for any flights you regularly take or may be interested in.


  • American Airlines publishes NetSAAver. Every Wednesday, NetSAAver gives details of their best bargain fares. To sign up, look at the American Airlines home page.


  • Continental has the C.O.O.L. program; TWA has its Transworld Specials; and USAirways has E-savers.


  • Or try a real airfare auction. Cathay Pacific, the largest carrier to the Orient, occasionally offers a large number of seats to the highest bidder.

  • If you get cut out of a promotion, call again after 10 p.m. that night or first thing in the morning. Airlines often reinstate a promotion if it worked. If you miss a midnight deadline, call the airline in an earlier time zone or book on the Web.
