No, but I travel for work and pleasure quite a bit. I have found that it is best to try the big sites - travelocity - Orbitz, etc. Then, when you find your best rate, call the airline directly, and they will usually undercut the big website by about 5 to 20 percent.

A few other tips too, try calling for rates on a thurs or fri. Over time, and speaking with travel agents, I've learned that towards the end of the week (when the airlines have bills and paychecks to pay) that they will sometimes have better rates for just a day or two. This is hit and miss, but I have been known to save 20-30 dollars this way.

Also, book your flight early. Airlines jack up the rates as much a triple within a few weeks of flight time

Or if you don't have to get anywhere quick, try flying standby. Some airports are difficult to do this at post 9/11, but I believe most still allow you to. You can get really cheap flights this way, but need to be very flexible, and don't even try flying near a holiday or weekend this way.

Interesting, I have never tried calling to see if they would undercut the online sights. Sounds like a good idea.
What is spirit airlines?
