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):
TLL-HEL (Finnair)
HEL-BKK (!!!!) (Finnair)
BKK-KHI (Thai)

then

KHI-ZRH (Swissair)
ZRH-ARN (SAS)
ARN-TLL (SAS)

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 booked tickets thru internet nearly all time ever since they implement websites except when I booked for honeymoon vacation thru travel agency.

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.

Hi B744F,

In fact I've just booked a trip to HEL from STN with Buzz and then onwards from Helsinki to Tallinn with Copterline. I booked the Buzz flight direct at http://www.buzzaway.com and the helicopter at http://www.copterline.com

I've also just booked a trip flying Virgin from LHR to SFO with http://www.airnet.co.uk for GBP 162 (USD 230 or EEK 4000)

Maybe see you in Tallinn between July 3rd and 7th?

Parra,
you made a mistake by booking helicopter from HEL to TLL  Smile
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

Hi B744F

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.

Parra.

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.

I have booked flights on the following airline websites and have never had a problem (plus I get bonus miles in my frequent flyer accounts for booking with them):

AirTran
Continental
Delta
Midwest Express
Northwest
Southwest
TWA
United
US Airways

Also, as well as United, you can reserve seats with Continental, Delta, and TWA and see where you are sitting.
