Hi........although i am not going to nceca, i do however, have a few
comments about good plane fares. Let me first say "I do not work for these
people". I have gotten many very good prices by visiting
There are articles with information on very good flight prices. For some
deals you must be a member.....but for others you are not obligated
whatsoever. They are currently advertising round trip air fares....many
coast to coast for under 200.00. I have booked with these people - it is
legitimate. I fly mostly round trip from pittsburgh to orlando. pittsburgh
is a hub for u.s.air so that is who i usually fly with. actually have gotten
all my flights for under 200.00 the last two years - and even in the dead of
winter (like now :-()

Another way I have gotten good fares has been to call the airline of
choice - again u.s.air for me - and request "v class". That is v as in
victor. I have no clue what that translates to but it works. I leave 30Dec00
for orlando and return to pittsburgh 12jan01 and the fare i got using the v
class request was 138.00 - round trip. Using part of a round trip ticket i
had not used before i ended up paying 15.25 for this flight.

so.....ya might wanna look this up. anyone has any questions contact me off
list - i'd be glad to help you out.

billie ....frezing her a** off in pittsburgh counting the seconds until
december 30.
i really hate winter..can't wait till i move
