  1. Pete says:

    I tried using this deal and it didn’t seem to work. It says it is valid until two weeks before the flight. I was looking to book halloween weekend. Please advise.

    • The Flight Deal says:

      @Pete – please follow our search instruction. the fare is still available — for example: October 28th – November 1st on AA. However, you can’t buy AA fares on Orbitz anymore. So try another online travel provider.

      The sample date is for LAX – AUS.

  2. Pete says:

    Thanks for the quick response. I used and tried first AA and then DL. Neither one produced the 199 price. 10/30– 11/2 were my travel dates.



    • The Flight Deal says:

      @Pete – it isnt available for those dates. this deal is over a month old, not going to find a lot of availability for a month old deal. they rarely last this long.
