My son and I ended up with $300 RT (plus taxes) to London just after Easter using Priceline.com. At the time, Travelocity was showing fares in excess of $750 RT, as was lowestfare.com. We started at a ridiculously low fare ($250) and worked our way up for the heck of it. Frankly, I was pretty surprised someone matched such a low fare during a spring break period. The downside of Priceline is you don't have control over your departure times (just days), and you can end up with non-stop flights (we go from DC through Toronto on Air Canada). I used Priceline.com once before going to San Francisco from DC and got a cheap fare that I couldn't get anyplace else. While I prefer having more control over choosing flights, Priceline.com got me some half price tickets to London.

There is a new site that I have fallen in love with for cheap airfares. It is www.digitalcity.com. You can type in your city and it will bring up three great airfares, then click again to show all fares from your city. If you bookmark it at that point, you can just click on it whenever you want to (like every day) and it will show all sale fares from your city that day (e.g. for Washington DC it shows all fares from BWI, National, and Dulles). It is updated constantly and some of the deals are amazing.

Airlines do not offer their lowest fares too far (more than 2 or 3 months) in advance of departure dates. Lowest (winter) fares generally begin Nov. 1.
Sept. & Oct. fares are somewhat more.
Suggest you also check with consolidators in your area which usually advertise in the travel section of Sunday newspapers. Some will put you on flights of major US airlines (or their partners)at ticket prices much cheaper than offered on the airlines websites. Plus you can get the full frequent flyer miles credited to your account. As with most cut rate tickets, they are usually non refundable.
