I managed to save about $50 with a HotWire fare!!!

All of the mainstream websites (Expedia, Orbitz, Travelocity and NWA) all had fares from $280 and up. Since Grand Forks (GFK) is primarily serviced by NWA, my selection was rather limited, but I used that limited selection to my advantage.

There is an interesting tip I would like to pass along. If you're going into a "secondary", smaller airport and you know it's schedule of turboprop and jet planes, then HotWire becomes a very powerful choice. In my case, I scanned the Grand Forks (GFK) and Omaha (OMA) airport websites for their inbound/outbound flights and discovered which flights are jet and propeller driven. With this info, I then had a resonable (no perfect) estimate on which flights I would receive if I clicked the "jet only" option.

Sure enough, I got a time that was very reasonable. I will come into GFK several hours before my event.

Has anyone noticed this before???
