Default How to get a last minute flight?

Does anyone know the best way to get a decent deal on a last minute flight? I just found out my sister is pretty sick (think autoimmune disease attacking her liver, not the flu...) and going in for a bunch of tests. I'd like to be able to fly out (from San Diego to Pittsburgh) to help take care of her daughters and household and everything. The cheapest flights I can find leaving in the next day or two are $600.

Any suggestions?

I'm sorry.
I always book my airline tickets at cheaptickets.com. Never last minute though.
Good luck.

I haven't used them myself, but I've heard of LastMinute.com (http://us.lastminute.com/index.html).

Southwest has a 'wanna get away' deal, I just looked and base fare was 479 - tax included was 550. You leave at 3.
Piriceline - 362 round trip (pre tax) if you can leave tomorrow.

Dont know if either of these are better than what you're looking at though

If you're willing to drive to an airport further away, that sometimes help. On travelocity you can select several airports and ask it to find the best deal.

Also, I know people who have had good experiences with setting their own price through priceline, although I've never used it myself.

Good luck to you and your sister!
