  1. Airline ticket prices are one of those topics that anyone can write a story about and be published somewhere. People will believe anything written right or wrong if it’s what they want to hear.

    I could write a story that the best time to buy a ticket for the lowest fare for this Christmas will be November 17 between 2:15am and 2:45am and all the airline websites would crash by all the idiots who would believe what I wrote.

    Interesting is how these stories never say anymore to call a travel agent who can pull up the fares and tell you the lowest fare and what you have to do to get it (i.e. which airline, days, times, etc) and like you said, it may not be on the prime travel days someone wants to travel, but could be a simple as a day before or after.
