I haven't used this agency so I have no idea of their quality of service. However, they were listed in the latest edition of the 'Frommers Budget Travel' magazine as a consolidator (bucket shop) offering discount fares to the UK and Ireland from the US and Canada. They're based in NYC and I think they're an Irish/American Irish owned travel agency:

I should imagine that many of the routes are not direct eg. perhaps via Iceland, Germany, France etc. but there is a toll-free phone number to enquire about the latest deals.

I have a feeling that they don't tell you the name of the airline until you agree to buy the tickets (which is why I don't use Priceline!). However, when cost is more important than convenience then maybe it's worth a shot! I have to admit to being cynical after seeing the low fares on the Homepage to the UK - I should imagine the prices are exclusive of airport taxes or/and severely restricted tickets departing an ungodly hours!!!!

No harm in phoning them though as it's free. Good Luck, and if you do get a good deal, do post back here!
