I have used this site a few times before and i just have not been impressed with it whatsoever.

Although, i do have to say that the way it is set out and the prettiness of it, is an advantage to anyone. It is very eay to navigate, and only has a few colours to deal with.

Along the tabs at the top, you can easily view quickly whatever it was you came there for, but after that, you are on your own.

It is an easily searchable form, but i was looking to go to Nottingham East Midlands, and by not knowing the airport code is not very useful. I typed in the Airport Name, and it up with about 25 different possibilities, that just did not make sense.

Eg Nottingham, via EMA at 12.00 SW???? - Really... what doea that mean?

The other thing i don't like about it, is that to get from Belfast to EMA, it has an average cost of $389 per person - going via aberdeen.

With all the low cost airlines available, why can they not search their databases?? It is really not a very useful website if:

a) Your looking for a domestic flight through the UK
b) Your not American, as the price is only in $
c) You don't mind going the scenic route to your destination.

Thanks for listening.

Actually, cheaptickets has two web sites, one is the american site cheaptickets.com but there is also a U.K. site, which is cheaptickets.co.uk I think if you tried them you would find it much easier, especially when looking for cheaper tickets and specific airports.

Your review made me laugh as I can sympathise with your trouble with this site which is similar to many other- do you know where I could possibly try to find fairly cheap flights to Marrakesh? Em x
