Booking For Travel Advice

Mon Nov 21, 2005 6:54 am

I don't know where to ask this

I know some of you work in the travel industry or maybe in the airlines and know something about pricing.

I'm wondering when's the best time to book a flight in late March to Asia from BOS? Soon after the New Year? Much later? February? When will the nice deals usually come out?

I'd imagine late March shouldn't be too busy a time. Springbreakers don't usually fly 12 hours for a vacation, although I'm sure some do (as myself). I am probably going to go to PUS, and the options are limited. I might fly to ICN instead and train myself down.

Any ideas?

Remember that this will clash, on the return, with Easter .This is a VERY busy period and so I would see it best to book early.They only do specials when they have lotrs of seats to sell.Are you thinking of eastabout or westabout?

Westbound, i.e. from BOS to Asia and back.

Just checked the calendar, it says Easter is April 16th. Do people start vacationing two weeks prior??

Certainly from UK they do I have bookings from about 18th March covering holiday destinations for families...When were you thinking of coming back to BOS?

I am under the impression that it's not a real holiday in the US, in the sense that people at most get an extra day off...

April 1st is my date back, so it's not a long trip.
