I only had success using it within the USA.

Giving ITA specific return dates (ie not using its special advantages), and sites like kayak are often cheaper.

Tell me which other sites will only search a certain alliance, a certain fare class, for hidden cities, for certain stopovers, for the cheapest fares during an entire month, etc, etc.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

+1

This site only finds the cheapest fares in some scenarios ... (as mentioned)

But often you will find much better prices on other sites. you can not depend on this site as being your source of travel search

if im searching for a flight, (besides for airtran) usually the first place ill go to is Ita software. and then to double check that its best price ill maybe go to kayak. but i like that website a lot

Just a reminder for those who don't like the new front end (I don't), the old version is still available:

https://matrix1.itasoftware.com

I've been using it for years and have not found any website to beat them in terms of speed and search flexibility.

It asks for login info + I believe low costs aren't included.
