Default How long before you book flight?

We aren't traveling again until June 2005 and usually book airfare a few months in advance. Have found some pretty good prices but am a little skeptical about 10 months out. What's the time frame for most of you?

I just booked my airfare for my cruise on the Valor in May of 2005 - 8.5 months away. I like to do that because then I know I have one less thing to do / buy come next year. However, when you do that, it is a good idea to keep an eye on your flight times every once in a while. They tend to change a little when you buy your ticket that far in advance.

Have fun on your cruise!

i also booked my flight way in advance ( the middle of june this year for may of next year ) for my flight to seattle for my cruise. i think the prices will rise and i wanted to get a great price , which i did. i am paying $302 total on northwest. and i live in the midwest and have to fly to chicago from my small hometown airport. i will watch it to see if it drops.

just an added bit of info. in january i booked my flight to pheonix for sept 4 and coming home on the 11th. i paid $235 roundtrip total cost with american and that included the tax.. now the ticket is $504 !!! i cant beleive how much it went up. so im glad i booked when i did. i went through the airline for the ticket on the net.

good luck and have a great time.

dusty -----have a great cruise

I booked air for my Christmas cruise in June. $250 rom Ohio to Tampa. Booked it when I found it. Figure it has nowhere to go but up at that time of year.
