If you've shopped for an airline ticket lately, you'll know that the experience can be a little bit like playing the stock market. A ticket price set at $400 one moment can go up or down by hundreds of dollars just a few hours later.
In fact, on any given flight, tickets were probably purchased at seven or eight different price points. So how do you know if you're really getting a good deal on your airfare?
Rick Seaney, CEO of Farecompare.com, helped us debunk some of the costly ticket myths that fliers buy in to. Before starting his Web site, Seaney worked for the airlines, closely tracking changes in ticket prices.
