Wink What is a good website to book international flights?

Skyscanner seems to work with a lot of fishy websites. Any help is appreciated.

Simple: book direct with the airline.
Booking with OTA's is always problematic

Book with the airline if possible. Otherwise I use AmEx PTS (and pay their ticketing fee) when absolutely necessary.

Traditional travel agencies are still out there. Some don't charge fees. There are private discounts out there (consolidator fares, negotiated fares available through specific agents or only in the GDS, etc). Lots of reasons to build a relationship with a human TA.
