Q. There is a group of about 40 of us from California that will be traveling to Birmingham Alabama on about January 17and returning on the 21st. we need help finding the cheapest possible fares...can you help?
A. I would try to get a group reservation from an airline directly. Call the airlines and ask for their group department, or check group plans online. American Airlines, for example, offers various plans for groups traveling for weddings, for business, and leisure. Delta also has plans for groups of 10 or more, as does Southwest, Continental, and other airlines. Shop around and see what works best for your group.
