Ok, so I'm posting this on a couple boards I'm on and I'm just repasting it. I really want opinions on when we should book our airfare from the frequent flyers. Although this would have to be from the people that plan their trip 12 months out and have the option of buying them far in advance or waiting.... We're not going for nearly 18 months, but I'm trying to figure out when the best time is to book airfare. It is MUCH more expensive than when we were going to go in March last year. That was going to be $250/RT, now it's nearly $400! So, for all of you that fly often, how far out should we book? Should we do it as soon as we can, or should we wait until 6 months before? I don't think I could wait any longer than 4 months out....we're going June 2008, and I figure by end of February 2008 I want to have my tickets, so I probably won't be waiting for a Ding. In fact, we don't intend on taking Southwest unless they are LOTS cheaper because I don't want to deal with where we'll be sitting with the kids...I like knowing where my seat is and that we're all together.... TIA!
