    Travel agents use it. It will search a whole month. I think if you put in an Australian city as the sales city it will show aussie dollars.

    It only uses main line airlines

    The beauty of this one is you can do a month long search and choose the cheapest day to fly if the departure date isn't important.

    It seems Google think this is a good site as well

    Google cleared to purchase travel software
    Promises consumers better ways to search for fares
    Fears Google move will stifle competition online
    GOOGLE has won US government clearance with restrictions for its $US700 million ($670.18 million) purchase of airline fare tracker ITA Software in a deal that will give the internet search giant a key role in online travel.
    Google promises to give consumers more choices and better ways to search for plane tickets as it incorporates ITA technology, which powers the reservation systems of most major US airlines and many popular online fare-comparison services, including Kayak, TripAdvisor and Hotwire.

    The company today had to accept significant conditions, though, in a sign that federal antitrust officials are becoming more concerned about whether Google's enormous clout as a major gateway to the internet has the potential to stifle competition broadly online.

    As Google expands far beyond its core search business into specialised markets such as travel, companies operating in all corners of the web - and government regulators as far away as Europe - are taking notice.

    Rivals and regulators alike are worried that Google could use its control over the internet's dominant search engine to extend its monopoly into travel and other markets by steering users to its own sites and services and burying links to rivals far down in its search results.

    Indeed, Google's search results already highlight some of its own specialised services, including mapping, video and finance.

    Although Justice Department officials did not tackle that danger outright today, they laid the groundwork for a potential government investigation into manipulation of internet search results. Google agreed to ongoing federal monitoring of its behaviour to win government approval.

    "They clearly decided that they want to keep an eye on Google," said Thomas Barnett, a lawyer who represents Expedia Inc, which opposed the ITA deal in a coalition with other online travel services including Microsoft Corp's Bing, Travelocity, Kayak Software Corp. and Farelogix Inc. Expedia owns TripAdvisor and Hotwire services.

    "The ability to use search dominance to exclude competitors is not unique to travel," added Mr Barnett, who was head of the Justice Department's antitrust division when it threatened a lawsuit to block Google from entering into a search partnership with Yahoo Inc in 2008.

    The agreement with the Justice Department comes at a time of mounting government scrutiny of Google's behaviour in Washington and beyond.

    The European Commission and the Texas attorney general are looking into whether Google manipulates search results to extend its monopoly into other online businesses.

    The European investigation started after competitors - UK-based price comparison site Foundem, French legal search engine ejustice.fr and Microsoft-owned shopping site Ciao - complained that their services were being buried in Google searches.
