Where else can I find cheap flights?
Also consider using Kelkoo's cheap flight finder which scans air fares from all the major travel agents and airlines. Drill through prices to check availability for cheap flights. KLM is also worth looking at for cheap European flights and Cathay Pacific is a very comfortable option for Asia and Australia. Alternatively, search for open jaw tickets (flying into to one city and and out from another).
Typically, flights to the USA are cheaper if a Saturday night is included, however, flights to Europe are cheaper if you fly mid-week and avoid weekends. Flights to Australia are notoriously expensive at Christmas so book early.
Always try to be flexible with your dates in order to get the cheapest flight tickets.
