    so what is the blackhat way or at least the sneakest or cheapest way to book airline flights??? I thought about signing up for travel*city affiliate or something then booking flights under my affiliate. is there anything else that can give direct discounts?? I know you guys have to have something up your sleeves. I havent booked flights in YEARS!!! far before I knew of blackhat!!!

    there's an ebook on clickbank about it. Its all about calling customer service and some lines to say to get crap reduced. Sounds believeable but I never tried it and don't think I have it anymore.

    I'd be curious to know if any of those customer service tricks work, but check out forums like flyertalk for straight tips.

    Signing up for an affiliate program won't help, because I'm not aware of any that pay commissions for straight fares. And even if you find one it will be 1% or so on a site that overcharges their consumers. :)

    Airline commisions suck ass! My BH method is to go down to the local travel agents and chat the gal up on the desk (make sure she's normal looking) turn on the charm, invite her out to dinner, and then turn the conversation so she gives me her staff discount on the flights :D

    Whoooop!

    Umm..Arent airline fares ALREADY cheap enough??? It was great flying right after 9/11...Now it's even greater with the economic recession and airlines having to do cutbacks + price reductions!
