    Anyone good at finding cheap airline tickets?

    i fugged up.... waited way too long. I think i looked 2 weeks ago at cost of roundtrip from New York to Nashville TN and it was about 215 bucks roundtrip.

    Now i can't find ANYTHING cheaper than $400 round trip

    departing NY (LGA) september 1 (early morning)
    returning september 3 (later in the evening)

    anyone have any helpful hints? i've never booked a flight before on my own, so are there any tricks or discounts i'm missing out on????

    trying to fly to Nashville for the AWA/Nationals.... just booked the hotel thinking the flights were about 200 bucks, boy was i wrong, LOL

    I just tried expedia.com and saw that the cheapest flight is $402 round trip.

    Try priceline.com and name your price and see if you can get a cheapy.

    400 is about right. you should have booked the 215 cause its always cheaper if you book it 2 weeks in advance. The trying to get right before the flight they like to stick it to you i know this cause my dad and a friend of mine fly a lot.

    jerry... priceline gave me $295 which is awesome... catch is u gotta commit to purchase without knowing the flight or times or anything... they promise ur dates, but times are a mystery until after purchase.

    yea i fgured as much, def not worth the risk going in on a ticket blind

    I already booked roundtrip NYC to Nashville for $397 a little while ago

    arriving Nashville 8am friday morning can't believe i'm actually doing this, haha...

    got the hotel dicount... no such thing as a jetski ride or AWA ride... i had to use the Jerry Gaddis name to get the discount

    Greetings--

    I've saved a few bucks by choosing the dates, but letting the system show the flight times. It seems that the system combines (sometimes odd...) flights to get a lower price.

    I'm not a fan of the priceline.com stuff-- ?? on the flight times-- same way with hotels-- ?? UNTIL you pay up....
