Default Travel websites on BB?

Please Login to Remove!

Found myself needing the BB to make some quick travel arrangements - I'm a frequent biz traveler and often need to access flights and schedules, etc. The problem is that most of the travel sites are so loaded with ads and graphics that they become painfully slow and inconvenient on the BB. Any suggestions?

Here are a few to get you started. Most airlines now have these URLs available on their homepages. I know that Continental, American, and Southwest all have these URLs as I use these sites.

I have read good things about this application:

WorldMate 2005

It is a $49.95 annual cost, but if you travel frequently it may be worth it.

Thank's for the helpful links. I am going to bookmark them on my BB right now. :D

These look pretty good - I was looking for an aggregator though - a Berry-fied version of something like Orbitz, Travelocity or Expedia (or someone) who could look up multiple flights/carriers given a search set, y'know?

Maybe Phil can add it to 411. It does everything else, why not this?

Yes it be sweet if 411 could do that, I rather have one application do several things than having to install 3 or 4 different ones.
