I'll just stick my nose in here as one who really dislikes WN. Other than a fare sale and all the hype, WN is very often higher priced than the legacy airlines, even adding in baggage fees (which...

Are you referring to Expertflyer or KVS? Both have a fee, both provide very useful information, particularly when trying to figure out fare codes and match prices to what you see on ITA. Also, very...

Very sad.

As someone who has been on two Yangtze cruises, I can certainly see how this could happen. The river is crowded and a lot of the ships/boats look as if they are barely sea worthy.

I doubt it and have no one to ask. As you well know, other than Emirates' specials, they are not cheap. And with all the "local money" (meaning the government subsidy paid to Emerati citizens),...

On ITA, for the dates above, fare in business on AirPacific was about $4700 on the open jaw ticket. But trying to book online resulted in everything from $7800-9100. BIG savings if you can really...

Did you REALLY read the USA Today article? Did you comprehend it??? Do you understand the dynamic pricing, the different fare codes, the different this, this and that. I don't think so.
