Which Travel Apps are Best for Flights? 

So, you want the best price, the easiest to use app or website to plan your travel, right? So do I!  I have spent my hours searching the different apps and sites so I could share with you how I find the best deals on my travels.  
 
I am a professional software engineer and have worked for some of the largest companies and many .coms including mobile and travel sites.  So, when I am looking for the best deals, I started comparing the different sites and phone apps.

Best apps and sites for the lowest fare tickets.

I found the lowest fares domestically on flighthub.com and cheapoair.com.  Also, justfly.com had comparable prices as well, so I will be including that site in my future searches as well. 
 
On International flights, justfly.com had found a fare that no other sites had by using multiple airlines.  Cheapoair.com also had very low prices on the exact same flights the other booking companies had internationally. 
For mobile apps, several are considerably more than their equivalent browser page. 
 
Going forward, I will bypass the big search sites and instead focus on flighthub.com, cheapoair.com, and justfly.com.  These sites had more airlines and lower fares for many of the same flights.
 
All of these flights were less money than the airlines offered on their own sites.

I love to travel so much that I've taken my 6 kids with me across the globe. Yea, it get's crazy but I wouldn't trade those experiences for anything.
