Someone else wanted to go to Dallas with my friend, so I figured I would try again following the same strategy to beat the Hotwire price. (Which had gone up by $2)
Priceline wasn't able to beat Hotwire on this one again.
Bid through the $35 bonus money link
entered ABE as your departure city and GGG as your arrival city. Do NOT select the non-jet option (you do not need it on this route).
Bid 1: $80 and select EWR, DFW (and DAL if acceptable); rejected
Bid 2: $90 and add RDG (non-jet only; free re-bid); rejected
Bid 3: $100 and add GGG (non-jet only; free re-bid); rejected
Bid 4: $105 and add ACT (non-jet only; free re-bid); rejected
I purchased this trip via Hotwire.... Got the following itinerary:
(The same Return - An earlier flight outbound... They are going to go to the airport at the same time and ask if they will let them both go on the earlier flight).
Thank you for using Hotwire!

Not bad if you ask me..... Priceline can't win them all I guess. Seems that Hotwire has a lot of USAirways inventory!
