Flight Booking Tip of the Day

With the holiday season sneaking up on us things are going to start getting more crazy and hectic from here on out. To help avoid some of this craziness it is always a good idea to book a flight during the holiday season at least 6 months in advance if you know you're going somewhere for the following reasons:
  1. You'll avoid the rush and be able to get the exact flight you want right down to the time, aisle, and window seat.

  2. The earlier you book a flight the cheaper it costs so you're getting more for your American dollar.

And since I like to plan things ahead I thought it would be cool to see how far back in advance you can actually book flight to go somewhere. After making some phone calls here are the results.

Using Delta Airlines you can book a flight up to 331 days in advance! A one way trip to Los Angeles booked 331 days in advance or for August 26, 2006 would cost $407.90. The same flight booked for October 1st 2005 would cost $487.90 That's a whopping $80 you can save just by taking the time to plan things out for 2006!
