Looks like I'll be heading to Yosemite for the AAC meet in October :-)

Has anyone got any useful hints on the best way to find cost effective flights?

Thanks

We found American Airlines to be by far the cheapest in 2010 - be warned though it was like Ryanair for 8 hours.
Paid much more for Virgin in 2011 and it was magic.

Depends, For example for September last week Lufthansa/United were the cheapest direct at around 500 and add to that extra baggage charges for sports equipment that Virgin waive. Indirect flights are much cheaper but imagine having to wait for a bag of climbing kit if it went astray and the hassle of changing planes with all your luggage (they won't check it through due to security). Last time I did this we only just got our connecting plane as we were fast tracked due to one of our group wearing a plastic boot and crutches because of a repaired Achilles tendon.
