For being such an early adopter, I sure am a late adopter on certain things. Why haven't I used Kayak.com before? Kayak is a great site for finding cheap and cheaper flights - it does a meta search, compares, contrasts and serves up some actual deals.
I had been using Orbitz for quite a while to handle booking all of my business trips. Traveling from Anchorage, Alaska to anywhere in the Lower 48 can be quite expensive with terrible flight times. Today I found a flight from Anchorage to Seattle for about $500 bucks give or take a few.
Then I went onto Twitter and posed the question: What travel site do you use and why? Most responses came back as Kayak.
I was able to get a flight to Seattle through Kayak for $443 - that included tax and fees. I booked it right away, then booked my flight to San Francisco. I'm traveling to Seattle for BizJam Seattle and to San Fran for BlogHer.
Hope to see you there! And hope you used Kayak.com to book your flight.
