Priceline.com is offering last-minute airline tickets
available for round-trip flights to cities around the U.S. at savings
of up to 50% off current published fares.For the best chance at these
savings, priceline.com customers should use priceline.com’s Name Your
Own Price(R) airline tickets service and travel between now and August
31, 2006. Prices and availability can change at any time.

  “The weeks right before and right after Labor Day are often softer
times for the nation’s airline industry in terms of ticket demand,”
said Mark Koehler, an airline industry veteran and priceline.com’s
Senior Vice President, Air. “The late August ‘shoulder’ season is
proving to be an excellent time for bargain hunters to make offers and
get exceptional deals on unsold tickets. It’s also likely that similar
Name Your Own Price(R) fare savings will emerge immediately after the
holiday.”

  Priceline.com’s Name Your Own Price(R) airline tickets service is
unique and different from published-price Internet reservation
services. With the Name Your Own Price(R) service, customers choose
their airports, travel dates and price. Priceline.com then works to
find an airline willing to sell at ticket at the customer’s desired
price. If their offer is accepted, the non-changeable, non-cancellable
ticket is purchased and customers receive details regarding the
specific airline, flight times and itinerary. For customers requiring
specific flight times or airlines, priceline.com also offers a
ticketing option where all the fares, airlines and itineraries are
displayed before purchase.

  In addition to airline tickets, priceline.com also has hotel
rooms, rental cars, air/hotel vacation packages and cruises available
