THANK YOU, GOOGLE!!!
Is that the coolest thing you've ever seen? The Google flight homepage automatically puts in my location (Albuquerque) and shows me everywhere in the entire world I can fly to, with the total cost of my roundtrip (or one way) airfare. The prices above are my options for ditching work today and hopping on a plane. Who'd have thought a last minute fare to Vegas could be so low?
Then again, if I call in today, who else will help all the crazy parents who visit our office? It wouldn't be right.
