Am I just paranoid about aa.com?


I sometimes wonder whether checking out the price of tickets a few months in advance alters the way that my tickets are priced when I do buy them.

I know that someone once found that Amazon was playing with customer specific pricing strategies. Anything to think about here?

I wondered about that once, but then I decided that if that were the case, it would be common knowledge on FT

You are not paranoid, it is part of the Patriot Act.

If you keep checking the fare for a specific flight, it's considered a security threat against that flight.

Yeah, yeah, I don't like the Patriot Act and I'm sure many people here don't either, but just remember one thing during the upcoming elections. The moon is 250,000 miles away. GLD or PLT for life with only a couple of mileage runs. ;-)
