It used to be that I would log into travelocity or yahoo travel,
select flights, choose "Flexible Dates", enter in my destination, and
I would see a list of airfare prices.  I could select a price I wanted
to pay, and then be shown dates for which I could get that fare.

This same service I believe was also available on expedia and others.

Now it seems yahoo travel limits this to U.S. destinations.  Am I
doomed to spend hours clicking away on different date combinations to
find my cheapest flights?  The +/- 3 days option is usefull of course,
but I am looking for something more to what I had before.
There is no answer at this time.

I believe that allows you to do something like this
when you click on the "flexible" option.

I hope this helps.

Have a good day.

That was excatly what I was looking for, and also very interesting

Goto the article below for the full story.  But pretty much I think
the airline companies got sick of everyone getting deals na ddriving
down prices on international flights.  So they foind some stupid rule
that make companies like travelocity not show flex dates to us

But if you go to one of travelocity's sister sites for other part of
the world you can still search flew on international flights.

is a good choice becuase the prices are in dollars, and then you don't
have to mess around with converting currancy to know how much you are
