Best time to buy airfare

Recommended Posts

I just got 10% off code from AA for my peoples... It won't be active for a couple more days, but I hope this rate is still available when I am ready to book!

If you cancel the trip you have one year from the date the ticket is issued to book another flight on the same airline with the $100-150.00 fee plus the difference in fare. If you do not cancel with the airline and just don't show up for the flight you have no recourse.

How many tickets do you think you will need on that flight? If it's more than 10 you can call AA and ask for a group contract.
I dont think I will need 10 or more on the same flight. My family is starting to piss me off. They said they would stay 1 whole week and I have been trying to find the best rates for everyone and now they aren't sure how long they are going to stay(this is my parents and sister that is recently separated who just took a month long vacation to Canada). So booo to them. I am booking our tickets soon now that I have a TAs opinion!

Thanks for spelling out the changing schedules policy!

I am getting Married June 20,2009 in cancun and thats really cheap... I say you buy it or tell your agent to put a hold on it somehow... I hope they stay that way becaues at the looks of things everything just keeps going up and up.. Its so depressing!!

I say you should book it. I was a TA for a long time and then worked for an airline before becoming a stay at home mom. That's a great price and if you decide to change the dates but keep the same destination most airlines will only charge $25 for a change fee if they can book the same class. if they can't book the same booking class (eg. U T Y) you'll have the difference in tickets + $25 change fee.

Minor update on my status... I never booked the airfare bc I am basically broke. It was going to go on either my credit card or my dad's credit card. I was holding out for his... Now the airfare has gone up a total of $60, 1st it was just $10, now another $50. I'm just kicking my self... but at least gas is going down. sad.gif
