Try & avoid travelling on Monday's or Friday's as the airlines expect business travellers to be flying on these days so the offers are harder to find.
Also if you ever book a flight, try & include a weekend day, in the past we have saved hundreds of pounds (Sterling) on Transatlantic flights simply by staying over the Friday night & flying back on the Saturday.
Finally keep an eye open on all the airlines that cover your route to see if any promotions are running. We are just ending a British Airways promo which meant it was cheaper to fly to Europe on a BA flight rather than the budget airlines.
