Are there any flight search engines for planning a group get-together with the cheapest flight costs?

For instance, suppose a small company gathering (much like the one I'm currently planning!), with employees in the following cities:

  • Wichita, KS
  • San Francisco, CA
  • Seattle, WA
  • Chicago, IL

We want a single city (likely one of the four on the list, but it wouldn't have to be), with the cheapest combined round-trip air fare for a 3-4 day gathering.

Are there any tools (free, or otherwise) to do this sort of search?

  • @Relaxed, the question you linked was closed as off-topic. This one asks something very similar, should it be closed too?

  • @gmauch: The linked question was closed as off-topic because it was about price shopping for a specific flight. This one is asking for a resource. They are fundamentally different, with a slight overlap in scope.

    @Flimzy, well not for a specific flight, the other question says "We don't need to meet in China, just anywhere in the world", just as this one mentions a single, not-specific city. Both questions want the cheapest combined-cost and want a tool for that. YMMV, but they look very similar to me.

    @Flimzy Fair enough, let's hope we can get some good answers this time!

I don't think so.

Any search engine is only going to as good as the code that it runs, and not many companies would be willing to spend time and money coding something not very many people would use.

My advice: Contact a travel agent and ask them about this. Travel agents are still helpful as they are people, and can figure out workarounds.
