Travel contacts?

Hey all!
I'm looking at traveling to Vienna Austria to visit my sister next month (well actually I think it's going to be Oct 31 through Nov 9) and I'm wondering if anyone has any travel hook-ups for inexpensive airfare? I've searched all of the usual suspects like Travelocity, lastminutetravel, Expedia, etc and found some stuff in acceptable price ranges, but just wanted to a) be sure I got the best deal and b) give a CLSB member business if possible =)
Let me know!
Those dates have NOT been confirmed with my sister yet, nor have I gotten approval from work to take that week off, but I've got a week of use it or loose it PTO that I have to use before the end of the year!

Thanks!

Inexpensive airfare???

Sorry, but good luck. No one is getting a break even those of us that work for Online Travel Agencies. With as much trouble as the airlines are in I doubt you'll find any, but good luck!

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

Sorry. No hook up here but Vienna is awsome! I was there in 2000. Side trip on a ski vaca in Italy.

I came here to drink some beer and kick some ass. And it looks like we are all out of beer.

I searched the site before to find the best airfare out there and then booked through the airlines website.

Good Luck,
Greg

P.S. Seems like airfare to Spain was always the least expensive and then trying to find a connecting flight might be the ticket.

I use American Express Travel - Sure you have to pay their fees a bit but let them do the work for you - Let me know if you want any contacts

You know it. Almost as much fun as stinky hippies and Eurotrash in Vail.
