tiamet4: I usually just walk into the airport right before the flight and demand a first class ticket like they do in the movies. Is that not what I should be doing?
Mighty Aswan: I don't quiteunderstand all thespace between theshort paragraphs.
Wodan11: This is completely useless knowledge. TFA even noted that , "On the average, you're going to be paying a higher fare the closer you wait to departure time," he says."To put the "buy on the weekend" adivice in practice, we would be put in the situation of waiting until the next weekend to purchase. So, what we really need to know whether the "5% cheaper on average" benefit is better than the higher cost by not buying a few days more in advance (earlier in the week). Which TFA completely fails to address.
Dragonflew: Would you prefer that economists did cancer research, subby?
PastaFazoole: Considering that I bought it less than seven days before departure, I got a pretty good deal on it. When I was looking at prices last week, anticipating this, they were higher than what I paid yesterday.
muck1969: I could swear that ticket prices have not increased substantially for over 20 years, and in some cases are about 20% cheaper. It seems as though the ripple effect of decades-long of fierce competition is causing the entire industry to degrade to the lowest acceptable standards.
