Anyone know the best time to get the lowest airfare rates for April/ May 2008. The rates seem pretty high right now.

In previous years I've always found the best rate in Sept/Oct for travel to axa in April. We fly bdl to axa via aa. I've been tracking the prices since june and they haven't changed (616.00+taxes pp rount trip) I'm going to hold out a little longer but I have a feeling they're only going to go up!

If you are a traveler, be aware that even if you pay a higher rate when you book and subsequently the airfare drops, they will refund the difference to you in the form of a voucher to be applied within one year to any other air travel.

We have used those vouchers every year for the past 3 so far when booking our AXA flights. So it all seems to work out.

I only mention this alternative in case you wanted to be sure of getting a seat when you want to fly.

(Of course one never knows when they decide to bump the flight altogether at the last minute like AA did to us, not once, but twice this year!)
