Maybe I'm wrong. Isn't true that when you purchase direct from the airline, you have more recourse should an issue arise re double booking and etc.?
Not sure if this is still the case but fare consolidators have a lot of 'small print' and you have to comply with it every inch of the way to reach any satisfaction with them should there be a problem.
I'm sure they must be a legit company but the problem is, you never know what will happen until a problem arises, and then it might be too late.
Personally speaking, I wouldn't purchase anywhere but from the airline itself regardless of how good a deal sounds, but that's just my take.
