gee, you didn't wait till the last moment.go to a travel agent..they are free and they are experts.........
Go to a travel agent. They may only charge you a small fee where these websites charge larger fees. or call an airline directly and book through them.
http://www.southwest.com Check out their "Ding" options... These are last min tickets that they just want to sell to fill seats... I usually find a good deal at http://www.expedia.com I have used it the last 4 times I have flown and got cheeper flights then at the official websites of all the carriers I looked at...
kayak.com is my favorite search engine that scans multiple airlines. Unlike Travelocity, Expedia, etc , they link you to the airlines booking site so they don't charge handling fees. They also show comparison findings of other sites like cheaptickets.com and Orbitz, so kayak.com is really a 1-stop shop. FYI: I am not their employee, I just think it's a good site. I see you did not mention a possible return date. Using kayak, here's my findings: (Prices INCLUDE all taxes and fees, however airline prices do fluctuate throughout the day rather like the stock market so they may be different when you check.) For 1-way flights with 1 stop: $300 leaving 2/23 7:30am on Continental, arrives San Diego 2:03 pm and is 9.5hrs duration $314 leaving 2/23 many diff times on Delta, 8hr+ duration $352 leaving 2/23 6 different times on Southwest,varying durations averaging about 7.25 hrs. Shortest duration leaves at 3pm, arrives 6:50pm and is 6hrs and 50 mins duration. For Sunday, it's a little more: $372 leaving 2/24 1:45pm on US Airways 7 hrs duration ($358 leaving 2/24 but has 2 stops and its not worth the added stress just to save $14) ********************************** ROUND TRIP FLIGHTS look like they involve red-eye flight on your return home: $618 departing PIT 2/23 7:30am on Continental then on 2/24 depart SAN at 10:40pm on Delta (kayak.com came up with this combo when I checked "round trip", I believe it means the 2 airlines have a friendly agreement.) $444 leaving PIT on Sunday 2/24 6:17am, arrive SAN at 12:42, duration 9hr 25 mins incudes 2 stops/change of airlines. Then leave SAN on Tues 2/26 6:40 am arrive PIT 5:05pm. That return flight is on Continental is 7.5 hrs duration with just 1 stop. There is also a 6hrs duration option: leave SAN at 1pm arrive PIT at 10:42 pm None of the cheapest flights are direct. Good luck and have a safe and comfortable flight; also remember they may not serve food onboard, so pack some.
