Yup, legit.

No problem.
Question is how can they be $300/400 cheaper then every other travel site ?
Hang on there. you might want to do some googling first. I booked a flight with them for my bro and I received an email confirmation from them yet when my brother showed up at the airport he was informed there was no such booking and he had no choice but to pay out of pocket for a flight that began boarding already to Israel. (they initially wanted 4k but he fought his way down to 1100$). Afterwards I saw online 100s of complaints against them..

After filing a complaint with the DOT justfly split the difference in fair and gave me a 150$ airline credit which I am hesitant to use with them..
Saw some reports like that as well,

When you booked your flight with them, did you try logging in to Ur reservation online on the airlines own site ?

If I do take the risk and book with them, should I use amex platinum, gold, or no difference ?
Any other card better than these in regard to maybe having issues with the ticket.

If I book a flight using my UR in chase will I get miles for that flight? (Just using miles instead of cash to book)
