I just helped my friend Ann Zabaldo, Mid-Atlantic Cohousing community organizer extraordinaire, get her conference flights. We'd been watching for deals, and on Kayak this one got our attention: $356 roundtrip on nonstops from Baltimore? As of this afternoon, 3 seats were left for an outbound flight Tuesday night in time for pre-conference workshops or local tours, returning Monday evening on a red-eye flight. And remember, for under $10 you can take the subway directly from SFO, even with luggage.
