Hi everyone, me and some friends are going to america for about 5 weeks next year, we want to fly to san francisco, then travel down to LA then vegas, then get an internal flight to florida, and again travel from there, to maryland, then new york. Then fly home from new york. Does anyone have any tips on getting these kind of flights? I'm new to this so don't really know where to look!
So bascially the international flights to San Francisco and back from NY? In that case I would check regular websites like Orbitz or Expedia. Or our own Momondo website, which also has a link somewhere here.
From where are you flying? You can also check the wikipedia websites of airports, like San Francisco Airport for examples, to see the direct flight options. There are links to airlines wiki pages and its own websites.
Check the Las Vegas airport website to check flights to Florida. I guess the rest is overland?
Expedia seems to be really good to get all my flights at once, thanks!
Not all of our airlines will appear on sites like Expedia. Southwest Airlines (WN) is one of the cheapest and best airlines, and does not appear on these consolidator websites. Southwest is very good if you expect any itinerary changes - no extra charge for changes.
I would avoid the following air carriers: UA, US, AA and DL

What time of year are you planning on going? My friend and i are pretty much doing the same thing june/july next year! We're starting in LA, then to san fran and vegas, then travel through the middle, down to miami, over to mexico for a bit and then up to do washington, boston and new york where we'll be flying back home.
Personally, we're just booking through our travel agent. We found that easier than trying to do it on our own. She just keeps an eye out for flights and lets us know when there are cheap ones.
Are you doing the Greyhound bus at all for travelling between la and vegas and that?
