Airfarewatchdog offers a listing of airlines' on-line retail centers.

Don't overestimate the value of on-line trip pages such as Kayak, Orbitz, Expedia and others. Offers appear there, especially those where the least expensive alternative turns out to be two one-way trips - one on one airline and the other back - which will not appear on airline webpages.
