How to get cheap airline tickets

The way airlines set ticket prices is extremely complex, based on a blend of computer science and math. A typical global airline analyzes and manages the prices for around 100 million fares every day. This, according to Bill Brunger, former vice president of Continental Airlines and current CEO of PODS Research, make it understandable that travelers often have a hard time figuring out when is the best time to buy.

His tips are simple: fares purchased 21 days before a flight generally cost less than those bought seven days or less before the travel date. Don’t wait until the last minute because you’ll either be disappointed and not get a ticket at all, or will pay way more than you should.

In fact, if you can book more than a month out, do so.
