As we enter OT season I figured this might be a question that the many uber-smart and experienced minds on the board could weigh in on. I am an infrequent flyer these days, taking maybe one flight every couple of years at most. I am working on booking a flight for oldest son and I for a father-son trip and I am have this feeling that I am missing 'the best way' to book it. I have googled flights and get a list of flights. I have contacted a travel agent for help, and candidly, they didn't seem to come up with anything that's too helpful. I would welcome your suggestions on the best way to find and book flight reservations.
My question is simple: What is the best way to book flights, what website, travel agent, airline, whatever is the best way to figure this out?
Thank you for you help. Hoping others on the board benefit from the sharing of the collective wisdom.
