Some airlines don't show up in the airfare search results. Is there a search site that includes ALL airlines?

Southwest, for example, sells online only through their own web site and their airfare results will not show up in the popular search engines results (like expedia, etc.). It would be very convenient to have a web site that searches these web sites and brings up the results. Then you go directly to the airline web site and book your flight. There are a lot of airlines like Southwest that don't participate with the big search engines such as Travelocity and expedia.

kayak is the best one, though I know there are airlines that it doesn't include, e.g. Southwest

I'm pretty sure Southwest only sells through their web site. Jet Blue may be the same way.

because airlines only want to sell THEIR tickets.

There are many sites like this...or go to a travel agent!

This sounds like more of a suggestion than a question...you have a question, but you have 3 times more suggestions...be careful

Try Kayak.com, that's pretty extensive. But I think Jet Blue and southwest don't participate in any other sites but their own.

Nope, some airlines don't participate in those search sites. Southwest and JetBlue don't.

Its because the airlines have deals with the sites. There is not a site that has all, but you might check airfarewatchdog.com which is my personal favorite

The answer is NOT!

But try

www.kayak.com that some-times shows a link to SouthWest

see:

It's not a question of airlines participating on Travelocity or not, it's the computer system. It's the same reason you cannot check your luggage all the way through if you go southwest and then onto, say, united. It's also the same reason that Travelocity and Expedia come up with the same fare all the time - same computer system.
