I am trying to book airline tickets to get home to KY and am having the hardest time! I thought it would be as easy as clicking a few buttons, putting in a CC number and BOOM! Here's your tickets! But NOOOOO it has to be a total pain in the butt If anyone knows of a cheap way to get tickets from Seatac to Paducah Kentucky for a 14 day stretch (weekends included) sometime in JULY let me know please!!!

Rant off now.

$409 roundtrip on American Airlines (via Expedia.com.) Dates entered were 7/9 - 7/22. No direct flights, but a few choices with one connection.....

Don't know if this link will work...www.expedia.com/pub/agent.dll?tovr=-1294737294&ps3u=

After talking to Kooter he has decided that we need tickets from 07/13-07/29 (Although he still complains that that will be to much time to spend with my family ) The next closest airport we would fly in/out of would be Nashville (although if the $$ difference isn't much flying into Paducah would be MUCH better as it's only a 45 minute drive from home compaired to a 2 1/2 hour drive home) I hate making vacation plans. This is another one of those times that I wish I could wiggle my nose and it all be done and ready to go!

$366 via Travelocity

I would check all the major ticketing places... expedia, travelocity, orbitz, priceline...

Tickets usually cost more in the summer. You could wait a little and see if they come down, but sometimes that backfires.

When checking with any of these price saver sites be sure to check on first thing wednesday morning. This is when the airlines reprice the flights to the lowest. As the flights start to fill up and the airlines see which one is more "popular" the prices for that flight will increase accordingly. So surf and buy wed morning and save a few hundred

Patience & perserverance is how to find the hidden deals on air travel these days. $279-359 would be a pretty good rate on that flight.

Flying free is your best option. Secure a cc that gives you bonus points you can redeem for air travel.

Charge any and all bills / daily life etc you can to that credit card each and every month. Obvious no brainer - pay it off 100% in full every month to avoid any finance charges.

You will be surprised how quickly you can accumulate domestic free round trippers using this formula. I have not 'paid' for a plane ticket in 8+ years.
