Two words: Grow up!

Let's see, you bid on a flight from any of several airports with a possible connecting flight. And you got ... just that!

Do you really think that airlines have trouble selling direct flights at convenient times from convenient airports at full price?

I agree that the taxes may have been an unpleasant surprise, which priceline really ought to make more obvious, but other than that, kwityerbitchin!

One final thought, I've seen several posts along the line of 'See, I'd never buy tickets over the internet!' Keep in mond that priceline's model is different than, say, expedia -- a few years back I found a good price online using the internet. The key word here is 'found' -- use tools to research good values *not* fabricate vaporous bargains!
