Is there an international standard for maximum ticket validity periods such as three weeks, 6 months, a year?
Do airlines decide their own ticket validity periods?
Does the booking class reflect the ticket validity?
Answers for these and any other advice on this topic would be appreciated.

Normally the validity period is 1 year in my experience, but the details are in the fine print of the ticket - either paper or in the terms and conditions you agree to, but never read, on the website when you buy the ticket.
There might be some information on the issuing airline web site.

IATA standard validity for an electronic ticket issued on an unrestricted fare is 13 months. Many fares however have limitations on ticket validity, and will indicate a Not Valid Before and Not Valid After date on the ticket.
