5. Consider Nearby Airports

Sometimes flying from or to a neighboring airport can be cheaper. Be sure to check all nearby options.

6. Look for Special Deals and Discounts
Airlines occasionally offer special promotions. Signing up for airline newsletters or following them on social media can keep you informed about these deals.

8. Use Reward Points or Airline Miles

9. Incognito Mode
Some suggest searching for flights in incognito or private browsing mode to avoid potential price hikes based on your search history.

10. Avoid Peak Travel Times
Flying during the off-season or avoiding major holidays can lead to significant savings.

11. Use Travel Agents
Sometimes, travel agents have access to deals not available online.

South African Airways (SAA) was undergoing significant changes and challenges. Please note that the situation may have evolved since then, and I recommend checking the latest updates from official sources or news outlets for the most current information.

South African Airways

1. Financial Challenges
South African Airways faced severe financial difficulties for several years leading up to 2022. The airline was heavily indebted and experienced a series of losses, resulting in financial instability.

2. Business Rescue
In December 2019, South African Airways entered into a business rescue process, which is a form of bankruptcy protection in South Africa. This was an attempt to restructure the airline's operations and finances to make it more sustainable.

3. Suspension of Operations
During the business rescue process, South African Airways temporarily suspended its commercial operations, including both domestic and international flights. The airline had to ground its fleet due to its inability to cover operational costs.

South African Airways Airline

4. Restructuring Efforts
The business rescue practitioners appointed to oversee SAA's restructuring worked on developing a plan to rescue the airline and make it financially viable again. This plan involved reducing the workforce, selling non-core assets, and renegotiating contracts.

5. Potential Partnerships
There were discussions about potential partnerships or investments with private entities or other airlines to help revive South African Airways. However, the specifics of any such agreements were not finalized as of January 2022.

6. Uncertain Future
The future of South African Airways remained uncertain as of my last update. The airline faced significant challenges in terms of its finances, operations, and competitive landscape.

To get the most current information on South African Airways' status and operations, please check official sources such as the airline's website, government announcements, or reputable news outlets. Keep in mind that the situation may have changed since my last knowledge update in January 2022.

1. Online Travel Agencies (OTAs) 
OTAs often package everything from hotel rooms to rental cars to restaurant reservations on top of flights to lure you in. You can even earn rewards miles when booking via an OTA . However, the only instance where you can’t earn reward points when booking with an OTA is when buying pre-packaged vacations.

2. Booking Directly with Airlines
Airlines would prefer you to book directly through them. If the price changes after you buy your ticket, many airlines will get you the difference back1. Sometimes, you might find a lower last-minute fare on an OTA, or occasionally, you may find a glitch in the system offering an outrageously low fare, but the best deals are almost always found when you book directly through an airline’s website.

     - Is it cheaper to book flights through airlines

3. Add-on Fees
Booking directly through airlines involves navigating a maze of fees, add-on offers, and confusing seat selection choices. The resulting price at checkout is often higher than the advertised price.

4. Rewards Programs
Airlines sometimes offer special perks when you book directly through them, particularly if you belong to their rewards program.

In conclusion, while OTAs might offer competitive prices, booking directly through the airline can provide more convenience, potential refunds if prices change, and special perks for members of their rewards programs. 

However, be aware of additional fees that can make the final price higher when booking directly with airlines.

Traveling from Singapore to Bhutan involves a few key steps due to Bhutan's unique travel policies and geographical location. 

1. Flight to Bhutan
Direct flights from Singapore to Bhutan are not available. Typically, you'll need to fly from Singapore to one of the gateway cities to Bhutan, such as Bangkok (Thailand), Kathmandu (Nepal), Delhi (India), or Kolkata (India). From there, you can take a flight to Paro, Bhutan's only international airport. Druk Air and Bhutan Airlines are the two airlines operating flights to Bhutan.

2. Visa Requirements
All tourists, except those from India, Bangladesh, and the Maldives, need a visa to enter Bhutan. Singaporeans require a visa, which is arranged by your tour operator and approved by the Bhutanese government. Your trip must be booked through a Bhutanese tour operator or one of their international partners.

3. Tour Package
Independent travel in Bhutan is not permitted; you must book your trip through a licensed Bhutanese tour operator. The government sets minimum daily package rates for tourists, which include accommodation, food, transport, and an official guide.

4. Travel Insurance
It's advisable to get travel insurance that covers medical expenses, trip cancellations, and other potential travel issues.

5. Health and Vaccination
Check if any vaccinations are recommended or required for Bhutan. Also, considering Bhutan's high altitude, it's important to be aware of altitude sickness.

6. Packing and Preparation
Bhutan has a wide range of climates, so pack accordingly. Respect local customs and dress modestly, especially when visiting religious sites.

7. Currency and Connectivity
The Bhutanese Ngultrum (BTN) is the local currency. Ensure you have enough local currency or Indian Rupees (widely accepted in Bhutan). Internet connectivity and mobile services are available but may be limited in remote areas.

8. Cultural Sensitivity
Bhutan has a unique culture deeply rooted in Buddhism. It's important to respect local traditions, religious practices, and customs.

9. Environmental Care
Bhutan is known for its pristine environment and commitment to sustainability. Travelers are expected to respect nature and contribute to maintaining its cleanliness and integrity.
Remember, the specifics can vary, so it's a good idea to consult with a travel agency specializing in Bhutan or the Bhutanese embassy for the most current travel information.

travel agents can sometimes get cheaper flights. They have access to deals that you may not find online. They often receive deals directly from hotels and tour operators.

        * Can travel agents get cheaper flights

They also have contacts with resorts and hotels, so they can bargain for better deals. However, any discount you’d get from using a travel agent would generally be for a combined package(nerdwallet.com). For the most part, travel agents do not get discounts on flights, especially for short distances.

Travel agents have specific tactics and methods of obtaining low-cost tickets, such as consolidation fares. They also have access to the information necessary to acquire better deals.

⇓  How to Find Cheaper Flights through Airline Partnerships and Alliances | On Point :
They get a lot of their information from the same sites everyone uses. Furthermore, they receive daily discounts via emails and faxes that are not usually available on the www.travelhowto.com.

So, while it’s possible to find a cheaper ticket through a travel agent, it’s not because the agency has a special relationship with the airline. Rather, they purchased the tickets from a wholesaler and are now making their own decisions on what price to sell the ticket for www.tripadvisor.com.

It’s always a good idea to compare prices and check with a travel agent to see if they can get you a better deal. But remember, the cost of using a travel agent is generally marginal, and often, they won’t charge you at all. Much of their money comes from commissions the hotels and wholesalers pay them www.nerdwallet.com.

If your flight is cancelled last minute, you may be entitled to compensation. The specifics of the compensation can vary based on the airline’s policies and the laws of the country involved.

  FLIGHT CANCELLED or DELAYED? Don’t get screwed! Flight delay compensation rights you NEED to know
In the U.S., airlines are required to offer a refund if their flights are cancelled for any reason. 

Flight cancelled last minute compensation
         * Flight cancelled last minute compensation

If the flight is cancelled for controllable reasons, airlines like American, Delta, Hawaiian, or United are committed to rebooking passengers on the same airline or a partner airline at no extra cost, providing a meal or cash/voucher for a meal when the cancellation results in a passenger waiting at least 3 hours for a new flight, and providing complimentary hotel accommodations and ground transportation for any passenger affected by an overnight cancellation.

In the EU, UK, and EEA, if a flight is cancelled less than 2 weeks before the departure, it’s considered a last-minute flight cancellation and you may be eligible for EU flight cancellation compensation. 

The airline has to provide you with a new ticket or give you a full refund, even if the flight is cancelled due to extraordinary circumstances.

In Canada, when a flight is delayed or cancelled, an airline has minimum obligations to passengers that could include certain kinds of assistance, rebooking or refunds, and up to $1,000 in compensation for inconvenience.

One possible reason why flight prices go up when you search is that airlines use dynamic pricing, which means that the price of a ticket can change based on various factors, such as demand and the traveler’s search history. 

Airlines use sophisticated algorithms to monitor customer behavior and adjust prices accordingly.
So, if you search multiple times, chances are that the price will go up each time because more people have seen your search and decided to buy tickets at that rate. "adventurespedia.com"

Another possible reason is that some online travel agencies, such as Orbitz, may raise prices on repeat flight searches, based on a 2016 study by Consumer Reports.

The study found that 59% of the times when the searches differed, the fares were higher on the scrubbed browser — the browser with no search history — but those higher fares often came from online travel agencies.

However, some experts say that this practice is not common and that there is no conclusive evidence that airlines or ticketing websites raise airfares for consumers who research a specific route on their computer . 
They argue that what people see when they shop multiple times and prices are changing is a reflection of inventory changes, data caching techniques and the fact that prices generally get more expensive closer to departure date, even within a day.
The best thing to do to find the cheapest flights is to shop around and compare prices from different sources, such as meta-search sites, such as Google Flights or Kayak, or directly from the airlines’ websites.
