I scoured the web for four straight hours: Kayak.com, Priceline.com, Expedia.com, and about 30 other ‘cheap flight’ websites. It was a roller coaster. I started with a quote of $1,000, then cheered after finding one for $900, then jumped up with a dance for $800, then punched the air for $700, and then suddenly, Bingo! $500.
Out came the credit card as I clicked the big BUY NOW button. What? $1,100? Huh? What happened to $500? What? $600 in taxes? But how? Why? Darn it! Okay, back to the $700 quote. Somewhat subdued now, I hit the slightly smaller Buy Now button. What? $1,000? #%$&#%$!!!
