What it does is, it takes how much money you are willing to pay and looks for a match as close as possible. The $150 fare though may have a couple of restrictions to it so make sure you read the ticket/fare rules. And if you are scared of priceline, just go to the airlines official website and book your flight there. That is the best way to do it. Once my cousin booked a hotel on priceline.com and the hotel would not accept it because the rate was too low. And she ended up not having a hotel room.Source(s): www.priceline.com
