For all you procrastinators out there, (like me), here's why it pays to book a fare when you see a good one.
Real example - Open jaw return and/or round trip SYD to East coast USA on United in November has been around $1450 - $1550 depending on which east coast city(s). Sometime yesterday the fares have jumped to around $2200 - $2300.
Ouch. This is why no-one can say what fares will be and when they will go up or down. If you see a fare you like - take it!!!!!
