  • Soutwest all the way. They have the best deals (no charges for bags, no fuel surcharge, no hidden fees, easy booking on-line, no assigned seating, easy boarding, prices stay low) And no, I don't work for them, I just love to fly Southwest and they fly into Chicago. I hope they fly from your city.

  • I usually use Travelocity or Air Trans. I would use Southwest, but they don't come to our airport. I'd have to drive 5 hours to fly Southwest. Sometimes I'll see what the cheapest flight is on Travelocity and then go directly to that carrier's website to see if I can get it cheaper directly from them. Sometimes I can, sometimes I can't. I usually buy my tickets 1 to 2 months in advance. If you wait until 2 weeks or less, prices are really high.
