Airfare for Spring 2003--buy tickets now or next yr?

Posted by judibean (My Page) on

I'm attending a wedding in Arizona in late April next year. I started looking at airfare prices on all the online travel sites and the lowest I've found is in the mid 200 range (flying from NY). Should I snatch it now or wait for cheaper fares at the beginning of next year? I don't know what a good deal would be for this trip. Anyone know?

I'd wait - I think you will find some real deals after the first of the year. I live in CA and often go to the east coast at the end of April - usually get some incredible deals early in the year. Last year got a farewatcher alert from Travelocity in January - bought round trip tickets from LAX to Reagan Nation (Washington D.C.) on Continental Airlnes - paid $120 round trip per ticket. Airfare is high right now because of the holidays - get on the email alert system on Travelocity, Expedia, Orbitz, etc.

Have you called a travel agency that sells consolidator tickets ? I believe has so names of consolidators.
You may also wait for the upcomming Iraq war to start. The number of people flying and the cost of tickets should go way down
bon voyage
