Is there a backdoor way to check DING Fares without it on computer?

    I have Ding installed on my computer and love it. Problem is, at work, i cant find out if a ding fare comes up that i am looking for, and sometimes they expire before i get home.

    i was able to install Ding on my work computer, but at my job, in order to access the internet, we have to put in our user name and password each time we leave the intranet. We can go just about to any site, they only blocked out a few-my space, etc.

    So when i get ding installed at work, it wont connect because it has not been given the user name and password to access the internet, and no option comes up for the ding program to use it, it just connects or doesnt connect.

    Is there any way to check the fares without it on computer, or any way to get a link? i really need a ding from phoenix to orlando, june21, return june 28. I have not seen any dings past may yet, but i know that they are coming sometime soon.

    Yes. I have a friend that I help with this. If she's looking for something, I just put her airports into my DING and wait. When a DING pops up, I click on it and when it takes me to the webpage, I copy and paste that link to her and she can put that in her browser and get to the DING deals.

    How strange. My SWA icon is gone from my toolbar today. I have been checking fares daily for our May trip.

    Were there not any DING! fares today?

    It is through South West and you install it on your puter and when a flight comes up, then it literally DINGS at you.

    should add, that the DING fares are discounted rates!!

    I had some pop up earlier, but it was slim pickins...not a lot like usual, so maybe just a slow day and you didn't have any for your airports?

    I went into my "All Programs" and launched it that way but the Icon is still not in my tray. I have never seen so few choices for BWI.

    I'm worried that I missed our dates for a BWI-MCO round trip (May 11-18). There were several a few weeks back but we were unsure of our exact dates so I didn't book. I am KICKING myself now as airfare just keeps climbing. There were fares today out of PHL but we have to fly out of BWI this trip so DH can head back to training in VA after the flight home. :sad1:

    There aren't any today (MCO is one of the airports on my list). What dates are you looking for?

    There used to be a thread on the Trasportation Board where the daily DINGs were posted. Don't know if it's still going on or not. It was called SW Ding of the Day or something like that.

    Sign up for emails at Airfarewatchdog. They tell you all the specials from wherever you want for every day. I got a great non Ding fare last time by checking with them.
