We got a $996 R/T quote for a flight originating in Dallas with a one month stay in Yerevan. That was for September. The nearest we got on Orbitz and Travelocity was $1395 for the same trip. However, note that the fare quoted is a consoilidator fare, and agents will have to tack on their own charge plus taxes and fees, which alone can add hundreds to the actual fare.
You can search from anywhere to anywhere, useful for European or Asian flights.

LEVON TRAVEL (800.445.3866) advertises some good fares this season, with R/T flights to Yerevan from about $750. But locking in on one of the promotional fares is another thing, expect fares comparable to Sidon Travel for most trips (weekend surcharge may apply), are restricted tickets and subject to availability.
A search at CheapFlights.com returned a flight from JFK to Yerevan for $899 R/T. Of course at this price the available seats were gone. Further looking at the booking agent airlineconsolidator.com came in with $788 for same route on Air France.
www.Orbitz.com and www.travelocity.com advertise good fares, but locking in on one is very hard in high season. We lovbe Travelocity's fare watch, which finds these incredible fares at 2:00 a.m. which are gone within seconds, or are only the airlines come-one fares with no seats held for that price. Both have after-booking service problems, we are still battling travelocity on a fare they canceled and have not issued a refund for. Go with an agent.
