How to Outwit the Airlines and Score a Cheap Flight

AirportThis summer, if you decide to fly back to the same vacation destination you visited last year, the tickets will cost you 12% to 15% more.

But with a little flexibility and some creative maneuvering, you can get where you're going for less.
