 there's a reason he said to use Priceline and Orbitz 😉
And not Google flights which imho is easier to use, or book with ac direct which actually lasted longer then other sites bc no one thought to use them

Much shorter free cancel period. And PL worked just as well and keeps the lights on.

interesting
although before he has laid out how to book with points on good air fare deals but maybe that's in the past
or maybe he did not want to utilize precious time to go through the points booking details because he wanted to give the olam notice ASAP
I spent every minute of the 4 hours looking for more routes and sample date while ignoring my wife's birthday and my kids on a Sunday morning.
Posting screenshots and instructions for every possible way to book is a massive time suck.
Never mind that Chase was down.

Out of curiosity, if you booked a flight on this deal, how did you book? I personally feel that the minor benefits Priceline offers is nothing compared to having to deal w middle men controlling your ticket.

Air Canada was glitching away for me. Google flights was spitting more expensive fares than pl. (I was on mobile and one of the ways was not a glitch fare.)

IMHO the nature of these deals (ie time limited) lend themselves to the PL/Orbitz benefits of extra cancellation times. Because research time is severely hindered, it makes more sense to quickly book several itineraries and use the extra cancellation time to do your research. I've booked mistakes in the past (delta, etihad, etc) and never had an issue with 3rd parties vs directly with an airline.

I found Air Canada to be a little over restrictive in managing the booking if it was booked through OTA.

Most airlines are. That's the tradeoff you need to make
