Any Luck With Priceline.com?

Sat Oct 12, 2002 7:54 am

Has anyone had any luck booking a really cheap flight with Priceline.com? For example, low-balling an airfare between two U.S. cities, i.e. BUF - FLL for $100 round trip?

Just curious.... and then thinking of trying a low-ball offer....

This plane is built to withstand anything... except a bad pilot.

I was amazed when I jokingly entered US$50 for a roundtrip flight from SFO to PHX on priceline.com and it was accepted! It was on Delta and I had to make a connection on SLC, but hey, $50!

On another occasion I entered US$30 per night for a 4 star hotel at Toronto Airport and it was accepted. They put me up at the Sheraton Hotel connected to YYZ's Terminal 3.

Not all who wander are lost....
