It's easy to use Kayak, and even better - it only shows the lowest fare!
That's why it's known to be one of the best travel search engines.
I personally find Kayak very easy to use, and I've bought tickets for domestic flights in India via this search engine.
I also use Tripadvisor to search for cheap flights. It's user friendly and shows the lowest fares!
Or you can check out the prices directly at the airlines' websites.
If you know which airline to use because of previous experiences, this is a good way of finding out cheap tickets from that airline.
On the other hand, you won't get a price comparison included other airlines. And there might be even cheaper tickets from these other airlines!
I've used this search engine a lot, and I like it because it's easy to use and the prices that pops up already include taxes and other charges.

We traveled with KLM to Kuala Lumpur in June 2009.
Flying with KLM was alright - you get what you paid for! You get hot meals, and small TV. And the price was reasonable.
But the big downside was the leg room. The flight was cramped (or at least it felt cramped), like when the person in front of us leaned backwards with his/her chair, we could hardly move our legs. The TV was almost up in our face.
But then again, we did get what we paid for, so we can't really complain that much.

I traveled with Austrian Airlines to Mumbai and out of Bangkok.
I enjoyed this airline because it was cheap ($990, I booked this flight at a travel agency in mid-April, and departed early October) and my journey was trouble-free. The flight was right on time, hot dinners and a very helpful and friendly staff.
I traveled to the Philippines last Christmas, and used Cathay Pacific. And I was surprised by the great service, good food and the friendly, attentive staff.
On long-distance flights, they provide ear plugs, eye mask, flight socks, blanket, newspapers and new movies (you choose)! I'm a sucker for flight goodies, so I really enjoyed this flight. And not to mention, I had loads of leg room!
If there's one airline that has received good reviews, it has to be Lufthansa. My parents who travel frequently to Asia have used Lufthansa for the last couple of years. Standard and food is very good and comfortable, and their new Airbus is recommended.
Youth- and student oriented travel operators usually provide good ticket deals.
If you're a student or under 26, you'll get a special price.
