That beats our $286 to London in November--but then we stayed longer, too. A very good travel email is sent out each Friday from the Clark Howard show. It is based in Atlanta, and many of the fares listed are from Hartsfield airport, but the fare codes are given and that allows you to get the same or similar fare from other airports. If anyone is interested, the travel page of his website is located on the internet at:

http://clarkhoward.com/travel/tips/todays_tip.html

There is a link to book your trip directly through the ITA site. All schedules and airlines are available on it and I think the booking fee is less than a dollar. This is the software used by Orbitz and Cheaptickets, as well as some of the smaller airlines that do not have proprietary programs.

I've found it very helpful. The e-scape email costs nothing and I am not affiliated with Clark Howard in any way. Hope this is helpful for those of you who haven't heard of it.

ps to 111op: I don't know if you saw my thank you for your mention of site59.com, but our family went to Costa Rica on less than a week's notice for $307 per person. Somehow it timed just right for the absolute lowest price, and we had a great time. Spent more on the jungle adventures (whitewater rafting, zipline tour of the canopy, hikes to active volcanos, etc.) than we did on the trip itself! Thanks again!

Hi kswl, thanks for taking the time to write back. I actually responded to your posting here. Basically I learned about it here, so we should just thank Fodors.

I don't know Clark Howard's list and it looks very useful. Thanks!
