USA/United States of America
USA plane tickets & flights
Here's the home of the World's largest low cost airline, SouthWest Airlines, if you are travelling within the USA, then check them out, their fares are quite affordable and they offer price reductions for several categories of travelers, such as elderly/senior people (for USA residents only). SouthWest serves the southwestern part of the country, as its name says.
Then there's JetBlue, another low cost airline from the USA. They have very good in-flight comfort, they offer free snacks and have good in-flight entertainment. Their comfort is superior to most economy class flights.
Of course, also check the big players in the business, especially on long haul flights: Delta (operates from its hub in Atlanta, flies most routes to Europe), NWA - NorthWest Airlines (flies most Pacific routes), American Airlines (the World's biggest airline, operates to more Latin American destinations than any other US carrier), there's also Continental and United Airlines.
There is a large number of internal flight connections. Mainly between the big cities across the country, which act as hubs, from them you can further reach smaller regional airports. For example: you fly from New York to Denver, Colorado and then from Denver you will be able to reach other airports within the state of Colorado.
Tremendous numbers of connections are available, most connections are to Europe from the eastern coast and to Asia and the Pacific from the western coast.
Basically to get overseas either to the east or west, you will most probably have to go through the closest hub that connects to your destination (New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Atlanta etc.).
Flights to Latin America are operated primarily from the major cities: New York, Los Angeles, etc., but you should also check the connections from the southern cities, such as Las Vegas, San Diego, Phoenix, Dallas, Miami (very popular for Latin American connections), Orlando, etc.
