Does anybody actually using internet engines (like Amadeus, ITN, etc) for searching and booking flights? Especially not for simple flight (like LHR-CDG-LHR), but for flight assuming connection flights?
Just been quoted by Amadeus for flight TLL-KHI (Karachi, Pakistan):
HEL-BKK (!!!!) (Finnair)
What a bullshit.... Unfortunately, this is very common situation, that's why i'm always booking tickets at airlines ticketing offices.
What's about you?

I have only booked on-line once, using Travelocity. My booking was a CO/NW codeshare, LAF-DTW-SAN (NW) SAN-IAH-IND (CO). I always use the internet to find good fares if I'm going to buy a ticket, but the other 2 confirmed tickets that I have purchased were on American, and I had to do those at an American ticket counter to get the employee discount.

you made a mistake by booking helicopter from HEL to TLL
1. you will need to travel from airport to city (aprox 20-25 km), where heliport is located, and the same on return trip. it is waste of time and inconvenient.
2. it is cheaper to fly HEL-TLL-HEL on Finnair

I know it would be cheaper to fly Finnair or even cheaper to go by Lindaline boat but I wanted to go in a Sikorsky helicopter. I'm taking the boat back but if you know a cheap way to fly from TLL to HEL I'd be pleased to hear about it.

Well, when lowestfare.com was selling TWA at a discount, I would buy my tickets from them. But now that TWA is no more, I'll do most of my research using the various travel and airline internet sites, and then go to an agent to get paper tickets.

I've bought tickets from Yahoo!, AA.com, and Ryanair.ie and have found all of them to be very user-friendly. They were fairly simple iteneraries though, except for a 3-city itenerary and I did that one on Yahoo! and it was still fairly easy.

I've used UAL, BA, SAS, GO, and Buzz and they're very good. I especially like UAL since you can see what seats are available & reserve them. The 500 bonus ff-miles per leg is a nice incentive, as well.
