Airfare.com too good to be true??

I just happened onto airfare.com and searched for flights from Atlanta to Moscow. Found a non-stop Delta flight for HALF what Delta shows. How can this be??

What approximate dates?

Did you click through to show final price after taxes and fees?

Hi S,

You can find deals on www.1800flyeurope.com, www.kayak.com and www.mobissimo.com as well.

It's sad, but true - many of the webites that offer fantastic air fare deals fail to include the taxes and other fees in the initial price they wave before the customer. Once you get through all the reservation and booking pages, the final fare is usually not such a deal after all ...

we used airfare.com this past july ....ny to rome, venice to ny ...on lufthansa. they worked out to be almost half the price, including taxes, if i booked directly with the airline. even the lufthansa woman that seat assigned us was shocked at how much we saved.

I a flight from SFO to Rome for this March that was $80 cheaper than airline.com

It was on airlineconsolidator.com, with United and Lufthansa, and it was about $300 cheaper than the posted fares on those airlines. So I would definitely check that site as well.
