Hi, I'm considering bidding on the Priceline Express RT airfare rate of $228 from BHM to DCA.  Of course it's opaque and so are the departure and arrival times.  Any clue as to which airline they might be assigning me if I go for it?  Here are the details:

Shuttlesworth Intl Airport (BHM)Birmingham, AL

Please start by following-up your previous Hotwire Ft. Walton Beach hotel thread with whatever you ended up doing for that trip.        


Please remember to follow-up your threads with your wins/decisions as you make them (even if you don't ultimately use PRICELINE / HOTWIRE, cancel the trip, book direct, etc) as this help keep the board better organized and more useful for everyone... as well as being a courtesy to anyone who took the time to help with your travel plans.


I'm not sure of you plans for this trip, or how close/far you are from the airport (ie- should you land a 6am departure and/or a very late return), etc... but flights thru conventional booking channels for this route and dates start at $250/pp (with excellent times starting at $258/pp).  I would need more than $22 savings per person to give up control of my flight times, connecting city, length of layover, etc.


In regards to your original question, no, there is no way to know which airline and/or times it is that you may receive.
