    Try Singapore airline's site … they do accept US credit cards.
    The other thing your friend may want to check – call up the bank that issued the credit card and let them know you are purchasing an airticket via the internet. Sometimes, the banks block internet purchases unless requested by the customer.

    Have fun travelling !

    It is not that they do not accept US credit cards, just that the computer your friend is using has got a firewall that does not allow 'dollar' transaction. Credit cards can be used all over the world, irregardless where the origin is. Alternatively if booking is not possible over internet, please call them up.

    I agree with the previous respondents: The problem is likely with your friend's bank.

    Virtually all travel sites (Expedia, CheapoAir, Travelocity, etc.), as well as the airlines' own sites, can be accessed from anywhere in the world, and the place from which they are accessed is unimportant. In other words, British Air doesn't care if I access their site from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia or Dallas, Texas. Further, where a credit card originates is irrelevant, particularly if it's a Visa, MasterCard or American Express.

    You're lucky so have such a friend! I wish mine would buy ME airline tickets! : -)

    Have your friend call the bank that issued the card. There might be some sort of security block at work here, and that's something s/he will want to work out anyway.

    Happy Travels
