If you’ve been following this blog for the past couple of weeks you’ve seen me dabble in posting flight deals. I’m not an expert by any means, but if I stumble upon a good one, I’ll post it up here for you. With that said, I have a couple of go-to sources when it comes to finding economy and premium flight deals. Thought I would share those with you.

FlyerTalk

FlyerTalk can be a cesspool of hate and flaming but to the trolls’ defense, if you’re not posting up ads for your business or shamelessly plugging your blog, the folks on there are very helpful and I’m grateful for them. The Premium Flight Deals forum, in particular, is one you should bookmark.

Check it every day, every other day, or whenever you feel like it. Here’s what you’ll find…

Now, first reaction is holy acronym batman, but here is a primer for the terminology you should be aware of:

  • OW – Oneworld
  • *A – Star Alliance
  • ST – SkyTeam
  • RT – Roundtrip
  • EK – this is the shortform identifier for Emirates. Go here for a complete list.

Blogs/Websites

I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention some fellow bloggers and the various flight deal websites out there. Here are my favorites:

God Save the Points – Gilbert consistently posts some of the best flight deals in the game and he is a must follow.

Airfarewatchdog – Subscription based

Scott’s Cheap Flights – Subscription based

The Flight Deal – personalized flight deals based on your city

The Points Guy – Let’s face it, TPG has the budget and staff needed to man the flight deals search engines all day so they undoubtedly pick up deals quicker than most people. My opinion? Skip the website for the deals, but instead, follow their dedicated deals Twitter account.

Google Flights – Nothing revolutionary here, but Google Flights is still the easiest and best user experience when it comes to finding flight deals.

Follow me on Facebook/Twitter

Whenever I see a flight deal worth repeating I’ll retweet it on Twitter and post it on Facebook. Make sure you follow me.

There you have it. Quick post today, but I wanted to share the tools I use to find great flight deals. I’m curious, what are some tools or websites you use?

Have a great weekend everybody.

For Premium flights, I mostly use miles and points as that’s where you get best bang for the buck. So, most of my time is spent on airline Websites, FT and ExpertFlyer. Still, for curiosity, I will follow, FT, the Flight Deal and Secret Flying.
