Priceline.com In HKG

Thu Jul 11, 2002 3:24 am

Priceline.com was launched in Hong Kong several months ago, promoting a saving of 20-30% on normal air fare.

Has anyone successfully purchased a ticket from them? Are they really cheaper than the traditional travel agents in HKG?

I've used Priceline in NY. Priceline was good and got me there but the people at Continental kept bringing it up and the Gate Agent was wonvinced that it was space-available as she TWICE commented how this flight was getting full and they might have to put us on another plane. Clearly she never heard that a Priceline seat is just as good as any other. I really feel CO was bad about the whole Priceline thing. I guess because they know I have no choice and did not chose Priiceline. Use Priceline to save $$ but don't expext the world...
