I know that the closer you get to the flights dates the price generally goes up, unless of course, the airline has a special to fill the plane.

Is there a point in time where the ticket price is usually the lowest? Like say 6 months out?

I've only noticed good fares 6 months out when you are buying in spring for the following autumn, or buying in autumn for spring.


Flights booked: NWI-AMS-JNB-DUR, JNB-AMS-NWI

They're like stocks. Watch your date and flights everyday. When they go down, buy.
Sometimes there are last minute deals, sometimes the deals are out 30-45-60 days.
Thats when the carriers are looking for instant cash for any given reason.
Right now, I am watching October fares to SEA for one particular weekend.

If two people agree on EVERYTHING, then one isn't necessary.
