The plane you're on is disturbing the peace, so you're being charged a fine.

Can someone explain to me why ITA sometimes returns more expensive fares than OTA's and/or the airlines themselves?

For example (I've noticed it a lot with this route): EZE-JFK RT 07/01-07/15. ITA is showing $1,381 on AA and $1,619 on AR, while Kayak is showing $1,067 on AA and $1,154 on AR.

OTA's can have negotiated fares directly with the airlines. Those don't show up on matrix.

Just use the bigger ones. Ones listed on Kayak are usually pretty good, or booking.com. And don't accept the ones that want you to wire money, thats a big no-no.

Try looking for it on the airline's own website. If they don't have what you see on Matrix, it's probably phantom.
