The Flex Search Sitch

January 31, 2012
Fares from Washington DC:

    Q. I noticed that scrapped their "my dates are flexible" search feature. Do you recommend another site that is similar to CheapAir with a flex date search? Why would get rid of their flex search? Please advise.

    A. CheapAir says they will re-launch their 360 flexible date search in the next few weeks. No other site currently does a full year's flexible date search. Travelocity used to, but owing to new DOT tax-included rules they disabled it. Hopefully they'll re-introduce it soon.
