  1. I need a round Trip ticket for $149 from Sacramento to New York for the month of December 19 – Dec. 26

    1. Hi Hope,

      Unfortunately the cheapest fares for that route start at around $345 per person, so you’ll never see it that cheap. Currently the fares for your dates are starting at around $520 per person. The reason its so expensive is because you’re looking to travel during the peak holiday season, so fares will be expensive. I’d definitely recommend to purchase now or as soon as you can since the fares will only get more expensive as it gets closer to your departure.

  3. Your website stinks.Saw a $257 flight ny to mco. clicked it and got nothing 3 times

    1. Hi Thomas,

      I’m sorry you feel that way. Finding cheap airfares can be a bit of a game sometimes since the fares advertised are based on availability and not always available on the dates everyone wants. In checking the cheapest flights for NYC to Orlando, I’m finding fares starting from about $225 per person. To view the fares, you can use this link: http://bit.ly/1mVsyCU If you click an airfare, you’ll be shown a calendar of the cheapest dates where that fare is available. Just click a fare and you’ll see the calendar which you can go through to find the cheapest days with the cheapest fares. Please keep in mind that some fares may be sold out and no longer available. I was able to find flights available coming up soon. Please let us know if you have specific dates you’re interested in or if you need any help with finding flights.

  5. My mother and I would like to fly to Phoenix Arizona from Chicago IL and be there in the morning of August 25th. Our return date is a little flexible, so either Tuesday or Wednesday is fine for a return date. But it is curtail we be there early in the morning in order to catch the shuttle bus to Camp Verde, AZ. or I can try to rent a car.

    1. Hi Saundra,

      In checking the fares, it looks like fares are the same cost if you return Tuesday or Wednesday, so its up to you. Currently, fares for those dates are starting at around $329 for the morning flights you’re looking for.

  6. I have booked many flights with cheapoair over the last few years. Flights are easy to book and the pricing is reasonable. Usually less than other websites I have use. I would rate your site as a nine. However, customer service is a zero. I have been on the line for over an hour and finally have given up finding a person to resolve a problem. Since I need an individual to change a flight schedule, it is very aggravating not to be able to speak to a person in a reasonable amount of time. Even though I have purchased the insurance, I know I will pay additional charges for changes. Why can’t you have more customer service representatives to assist customers?
