They pop up on Kayak searches, not sure about the lesser engines.

Comes up for me, when I use the search engines.

Use Kayak instead of Orbitz!

Between the U.S. and Europe:
Fly GlobeSpan

Within Europe:
Ryanair
Vueling (Spain)

EasyJet does come up in Kayak.com searches.

These all come up at www.airfarewatchdog.com

I use the site all the time and highly recommend it as it taylors itself to your departure City

Use sidestep.com,it list 85 to 95 percent of airlines on searches.

Use www.itasoftware.com best site I've found

Zoom airline flyzooml
Flies from NY to London - the cheapest

On Topic Comment:
I go to the airport's website and look at what smaller airlines fly with them. It's faster than going to each discount airline server and checking if they service the airports I want.

I found Zoom through a google.com search of "Cheap Flights NY to London".

If you are a student, STA Travel (www.statravel.com) can help with booking Jetblue and a bunch of other travel-related bookings.

Off Topic comment:
Zoom is cheap in the exact meaning that the service inexpensive but with implied issues in quality. Check to see that Zoom has resolved their problems flying from New York to London (Gatwick). I used them in July 2007 (this was a new route for them at the time) and the plane was delayed over (if I remember correctly) ten hours because they didn't have their paperwork together. It wasn't just my flight. The attendants at the airport said that was a repeating occurance for Zoom flights from NY to London, where they had to reroute the flight causing delays. From what I've read paperwork issues seem to happen whenever Zoom opens up a new route. We complained to several people at Zoom's customer disservice but they've written it into their policy that they can delay you for whatever reason and not provide any sort of compensation.
Again, sorry that this last part is off-topic . . .

Westjet

They're a Canadian airline, but they have some flights into the US (between Canada and the US). They don't show up on third party bookings (AFAIK).

I am not a marketing expert but a choice for the airlines not to appear in the consolidated searches look stupid to me. Why don't they want to have more exposure? The booking fees are paid by the consumer anyway...

I also like farecompare.com. They show you the price breakout for the entire year month by month. They also let you set up searches that will email you when the prices for a desired route change. I laeve a couple trips active in the search and wait. If a good deal comes up I try and fit it in my schedule.

Sunwing airlines - flysunwing.com

This is a Canadian airline that only flies out of a few major cities: Toronto, Calgary,

They mostly fly to holiday destinations. They definitely do not show up on any flight search engines.

I have found that their pricing is usually lower than the competition. For a trip I'm planning from Toronto to Cancun right now the lowest price on sidestep or itasoftware is $637. Sunwing comes in at $557 including taxes.

I've flown sunwing just once but would prefer them over any other airline I've flown: complementary blankets, pillows, headsets, FULL MEAL AND CHAMPAGNE!
