Hi -

Anyone familiar with Justfly.com? If it is legit? Experiences?

Found a Pesach flight I wanted to book. Found it on ITA for $4,111 total, on cheapOair for $4,106 total
and on justfly.com for $3,933 total.

Not sure why it would be $5 and $180 cheaper respectively. I have heard of cheapOair but not of justfly.com.

Any help is appreciated!

Work hard, Play harder!

I have a strange feeling that this has something to do with flighthub.com

TOC & PP are similar but doesn't have to meant anything

Haven't used flighthub either. Nor does the forum seem to know much about it from doing a quick search.  :-\

I personally didn't have a great experience with them.

I see tons of other similarities and they are both on the same server

Seems like warning enough to pass on on the few savings.

Yep. Saw that! You seem to be the go-to-DDFer for funky airline websites :)

I used them two weeks ago (I was redirected by kayak) to Hungary and Israel and didn't have any issues.

Adding another data point from someone in my minyan, who posted this to our list-serv :

Friends:

I am posting this note on every forum where people may be exposed to these scam artists. Please do not do business with them.

I just had the worst experience with Justfly.com. I booked a business trip through JustFly.com. This business class trip to Copenhagen was priced at $8308.98, which I paid out off ocket since I work for a small company. I get refunded after I fly. I found out yesterday that the dates for my meeting were changed. I immediately logged in, but it turns out I could not change the dates for my flight through Justfly.com's website. So I called.
Yesterday, I spoke to a person from justfly.com who told me that the changes in timing were possible, but that there was an issue with the booking system and that I needed to call back the next day. When I called this morning, Christine 'helped' me. I was not happy with the change fee of $150 they impose. One reason I book business class is that it is no hassle to change the flights and no cost.
Christine said that the flights I had selected for one month later with the previous representative were no longer available. I checked on line with the airline that they could indeed sell me those tickets on that date for virtually the same price, but she said it was impossible.
I then suggested to cancel the flight. Again, this incurred a $150 fee. But what blew my mind is that they claim it takes one to two billing cycles to pay me back. They took my $150 for a cancellation in 10 seconds. I expect all that money to be refunded within 5 business days or Justfly.com can expect legal action.

Boy do I love this

One reason I book business class is that it is no hassle to change the flights and no cost.

L.O.L - for what reason should this be so? All airlines impose a penatly to cancel/change the cheap biz fares, and many don't even allow changes/refunds even for a feee

I was not happy with the change fee of $150 they impose.

That you are right. While most agents will charge you on-top of the airlines fee, $150 is a bit too high IME.

But what blew my mind is that they claim it takes one to two billing cycles to pay me back. They took my $150 for a cancellation in 10 seconds.

"EVERY" airline/vendor/CC will say so just to have some space, but calm down, if they indeed process the refund by Sunday, you shoudl see it back by next week Friday.
