October 14, 2006:
So, I'm planning a plane trip across the Atlantic, to visit G. and P. in the balmy British winter.
Results of my pricing research: Heathrow might be cheaper than Gatwick, depending on whether or not the site quoting Lufthansa and Air Canada fares thereto for $390 was lying. However, train fares from Heathrow to $DESTINATION are, if I understand National Rail's site, about $45 US. Air Canada's own site quotes 486.
EVERY airfare search site appears to be using the same software; all that seems changed is what company logo is on the skin. Oddly, it works on a fair number of them - they usually break other things instead.
Argh! (CONFUSED DEEKOO)
