vayama-ever heard of it?

Searching for flights to Barcelona in Oct. So far have gone to kayak.com and sidestep.com. In addition to showing me flights on major airlines, both sites also show "secret airline." When I click on that something called vayama comes up. There's a long list of flights with them, but they say because of such good deals they can't show me the name of the airline and other details until booking. 1st time I've run into this. Anyone heard of them, used them? Thanks.

vayama.com is ok have used them they are a clearing site

they use Iberia.com a lot old fleet bankrupt not a great

airline.

cheapoair.com good screening site though

continental.com ba.com aa.com

have gotten LOTS of FF miles on CC deals with them

enough for several more free flights.

generally come out better booking direct and snagging

all the FF miles.

Happy Hunting,

Thanks qwovadis. I figured anything on kayak and sidestep would probably be ok, but had never before seen vayama. Appreciate the info. We're not crazy about Iberia, but if the price is right...

Enter VAYAMA in the "Search the Forums" above and you will get a lot of results. I have used them often for non-US flights but never heard of their "Secret Airlines".

Hi: I have used them twice. Both times ok once they made error in year I booked in early January and they put in the prior year but I caught it when the email of ticket came and with a few calls they did fix it.
Price was right on the flights so no other problems.

I used Vayama a couple of years ago for flights to Cairo and returning from London. Wasn't a "secret airline deal" however - it was Lufthansa. No problems though.
