Kayak's buzz is a great feature - it keeps me coming back to the site, time and again. Maddeningly, though - Kayak doesn't let you select the Middle East as a region choice, it skips directly from 'Europe' to 'Asia'. This is where Farecompare takes a better approach - just type in any specific city pair without a date range. And who knew how cheap it is to get to Beirut right now . . . itchy, itchy mouse-clicking finger . . .
