Here we are days away from the biggest travel day of the year and you're still looking for a cheap fare. I've always heard that cheap things tend to be expensive. Sometimes we try and take shortcuts and they end up costing us more money, time and energy. When I saw this list I thought I have to share this because being someone who flies often, this is great info. According to the article written by Melanie Lieberman, Michael Y. Park and Liz Hund.
