The Search for Cheap Air Ticket

9 Feb 2005

I searched the websites like Orbitz, Priceline,, did several google search. The complete list of air ticket search sites are,,,,,,,, and maybe a couple others that I forgot.
Finally got the cheapest deal on (US$443.2), then did a yahoo search, tried out the new Yahoo Farechase Beta search, got the same cheapest deal from The flight I booked departs from San Francisco International Airport on 29 March at 12pm (US Pacific time) to the Narita Tokyo Airport in Japan at 4:40pm the next day (30 March, Japan time). The EAP people will be at the airport from 2pm to 6pm on the 30 March (I believe this is Japan time also). This sounds like the right time to arrive at Tokyo.
The $443.2 ticket is a non-stop airbus from Northwest (Northwestern?) airline with Dinner and Breakfast.
Excited and nervous. Everything still seems so unreal to me.
