Hi everybody

I'll be travelling to India (my home country) in October this year. I've never purchased air tickets online before. I would like to do it this time. Can you guys suggest me any good websites that you have purchased tickets from?

Thanks / Regareds

i like kayak.com... they sort of pool everyone else together, but they dont really check airlines like jetBlue and Southwest. so you gotta compare

Have you tried makemytrip.com? Which city you flying to? Usually flying to Delhi is cheaper than flying to Bombay. I'm too looking for tix to go to India in december, but obviously due to peak season, i'm looking at an economy ticket of $1400. I definately don't want to go non-stop. But you can go to the following websites:

1. itasoftware.com (Use this to get booking codes, you can then either call the airlines or email the itenirary to your travel agent)
2. orbitz.com
3. makemytrip.com

those are pretty much the ones i use. i plan on calling some travel agents to get deals. If you want I can post numbers of those travel agents.

Usually, i've found out that the travel agents are generally cheaper than online websites cause they buy seats in blocks. Ex. A travel agent was giving me CMH-DEL on EK for $1297 RT. Although that required me to change from LGA to JFK and there was a 8 hr halt at DBX.

check out American Airlines site http://www.aa.com . They appear to have good fares. Select the advanced search option, and select "All carriers" option there and do a search.

I would say the airline's website itself, most will guarantee that they lowest fare on their planes is on the website. The easiest and most popular was to get to India are

Northwest www.nwa.com which goes to BOM or connect to KLM to delhi
Delta, serve a few destinations. www.delta.com

I go to Orbitz and Travelocity and find the what airline has the best deal, then go to that airlines website. We have found that it is then cheaper and its easier to call up about the flight through the airline.

We booked AKL-LAX on travelocity.com with NZ. then we tried to call and they told us that we had to call Travelocity, well it was a big mess and in the end it cost us about 100 extra dollars to change the ticket, where as if we would have stayed with the airline directly we could have saved money! lesson learned!

If your going Economy class I find using an Indian Travel agent is the best bet because you get a lower fare than most websites like Orbits, and Expedia. When I go Economy to Delhi from Jacksonville FL I use my agent and get a Emirates ticket for around $1377 with taxes going UA/EK

For business class travel I've been using Expedia to get my all my tickets for India because Expedia has been cheaper than any agent that can offer me a ticket. I've bought an Aeroflot business class ticket directly from Expedia which was $300 dollars cheaper than a discount agent. Also recently bought a business/first ticket on Continental to Delhi.

Opodo is the one I always use when I plan my trips. (Not sure whether there is a US version though, but worth a try!)
