I want to monitor one airline site ([url removed, login to view]) and basically one flight route both ways:
Phoenix, AZ to Bellingham, WA
Bellingham, WA and Phoenix, AZ
On Sun, Wed, Thur and Sat, they have one flight a day going each way.
Based on my own experiences, I have seen prices one way as low as $19. This is very rare but it does happen ever now and again. In talking to one of their customer service reps, if they are below a certain number of passengers, they will lower the price until that number is met. She says the price point changes every 45 minutes.
Here's what I would like.
A program (windows service maybe?) that will run in the background at all times and every 5 minutes or so, hit the web site, do the search for flights that I have specified and alert me via email or some other way if the flight prices for any leg are below $99.
The site is a php site if that matters.
I'm a developer myself and have done a similar project in the past but I'm busy working on another project and just don't have the time.
This project will be for my personal use only.
Let me know if you have any questions.

I can write you a program that you can use and reuse anywhere you desire by entering the program and changing the hot spots. I would love to do this for you. Mike
I have a similar utility already written, although it is currently in java. I can easily amend this for your requirements. It will be no problem to convert this to .net for you. Regards, Adil
