cheap airfare?

i'm home on break for about 2 weeks and my friend in atlanta decided last minute that she wants to stay up here in buffalo with me for a few days, sometime within those 2 weeks.
anyone have tips on finding some deals on airfare? it is kind of late to be looking for tickets, so prices havent been to friendly

this is tough, competing with the world cup thread, but hopefully someone will get a a chance to see this haha

Re: cheap airfare?

Looks like about $600 round trip? Do you or any friends or family members have frequent flyer miles they can use to get a round trip ticket?

The only other thing that I have done, although not reliable at all: call the reservation lines and find out how full a flight is. If there are a lot of open seats, you can sometimes buy cheap tickets at the terminal right before the plane starts boarding.

Why not rent a car and road trip? You can spend a few days seeing the sites along the east coast. The whole point of a break is to forget your schedules and commitments and enjoy yourself.

I fly A LOT, and I fly Southwest all of the time. I've flown 8 times this month alone.

If she doesn't mind flying out of Birmingham, you can get a $300 round trip ticket with advance notice. It's only a two hour drive from Atlanta to Birmingham.

Re: cheap airfare?

Frequent flier miles are the bomb, I just got my flight tomorrow upgraded to First Class at no extra charge (but it cost me 30,000 miles!).
