Re: High Flight Prices During Low Season?!
I watch prices constantly and we used to fly exclusively out of MSP, but now we mainly fly out of Duluth and connect in either MSP or ORD and I usually see the best prices at 2-3 months out. I know it is difficult to wait to book a flight, but waiting has saved us a lot of $$ over the years. What I have read is that the big airlines wait until 60-90 days out to see how much unsold inventory (seats) they have remaining and then adjust their prices. If I were planning a trip for July I would get serious about booking around the end of April. I also have signed up to several of the booking sites, like Airfarewatchdog & Bookingbuddy and get regular updates when prices drop. Good Luck!
