Farecast offers airline ticket lock-in

They must trust their predicting system.

    “Farecast is a service that predicts airline pricing in the future (U.S. domestic market only), helping customers decide if they should purchase a flight now, or wait. They’ve been testing a product which allows users to lock in a price found on the site for up to a week. For $10, customers will be protected against any price increases for that flight. This is, effectively, the purchase of an insurance policy against the risk of future price increases.”

Time to add farecast to my regular lineup of flight sites (kayak, mobissimo, southwest). And note to southwest, share your flight data with the aggregator sites already!
