Kayak finds you the best deal, and sends you to that site.  I just did a quick search for 2 adults and one child from Clark to Chicago.  Found a round trip for $2,264 for all 3 of us.  It was through Asiana airlines.  When I clicked on it, it actually took me straight to Asiana Airlines website and pulled up the exact flight and seats(the adult/child selections I made on Kayak) and everything.  I am not booking on Kayak. I'm on Asiana Airlines and booking straight with them.
It breaks down the bill also for the price of ticket, fuel surcharge, taxes and fees and all that good stuff also. 
Now, I have not gone through with a purchase yet and will report when I do.  Give a review of their service as I do not see how Kayak makes money of this from what I have seen so far.  Might be some hidden codes showing AsianaAirlines that I was brought to them via Kayak and that is how Kayak makes it's money.

I just read my earlier post, typo error as it was late and just using my phone in posting. 😅

For the record, the last time I checked the travel agency we used in 2011 and referenced below has gone out of business  :(

That travel agency setup of old must be a very hard business to succeed in now days.  With all the sites online for hotels, bnbair, condo rentals, vehicle rental sites, flight airfare sites and so on, most people with basic internet use knowledge can put together their own trips and probably for as low of cost, if not lower, than those old brick and mortar sites.

Probably so.  They don't get personalized service though in solving problems when other entities in the path start changing things around like an airlines cancelling a flight because of aircraft, airport, or weather problems, etc.  Plus, if the potential traveler has a business or not and is too busy to sit around or have someone sit around and do their own research of the constant changing deals, then they don't always get the best deals.  A brick and mortar place holds there own if the owner is dedicated to her work and survives.  So, if anyone thinks they are thing of the past, I would not be so sure.  It is just an ever changing world but there are still plenty of them around and there is no end in site in the near future.
