Farecast Deals Searches For Cheap Airline Tickets Using 'Science'

We like Farecast. The first time we ever used it we got a non-stop flight home to Chicago on Thanksgiving weekend for $119. That was nice. Now Farecast has a “deals” section where they use their fare prediction “science” to find the best deals. It’s nifty because compares the “deal” with the average fare. From Farecast’s Blog:

How are our deals different than thousands of other travel sites? They’re different because our deals are based on science, not marketing. We apply science to airfare deals in two ways, 1) why it’s a deal and 2) why you should buy now.

These are the questions we find ourselves asking, and now we don’t have to. Very cool. —MEGHANN MARCO

    judging from the pic, it looks like the service is only for the ny area… luckly they have other major cities as well… i agree international destinations would be great considering the high prices

  5. And now… for something completeley off-topic!

    @GenXCub: I had to go download some thomas dolby after your statement. God I love IRC. Wait, I should change that to state
