Digging for Better Fares

I thought I would share something I just ran across earlier today. Here's the scoop...

I am considering visiting a client in Plainsboro, NJ for a face-to-face meeting. The client informed me they're roughly 45 minutes from Newark and 45 minutes from Philadelphia. After spending some time on Continental's page searching for fares, I found the following:

Houston to Philadelphia roundtrip - ~$340.00
Houston to Newark roundtrip - ~$1,050.00

So, by flying into Philadelphia, I save $700 and have an easier experience since getting in and out of Philadelphia is easier than Newark. Moral of the story - check alternate airports. Flying into a different airport can make a big difference.
