    ... as much about where you book as which airline you fly.

    Hello.

    5 Ways to Score a Lower Airfare at SmartMoney.com
    These days, getting a good deal on airfare is as much about where you book as which airline you fly.

    Can I say related to in place of about?

    Thank you.

    In a technical sense, yes. It would be grammatically correct. But I would say in this particular sentence using "related to" in place of "about" is not practical. It woudn't sound good. In other sentences it might work, but not in this one.

    This sentence is used for commercial purposes, and using "about" gives the sentence a more casual and easygoing tone. Using "related to" instead kind of makes it sound a little strange. It just doesn't fit very well in this sentence.

    Would it be okay to say These days, getting a good deal on airfare is as much about where you book as about which airline you fly?

    Yes, it's correct, and it sounds good.
