I'm flying to Venice in early September and looking for advice on buying a ticket as opposed to flying standby on a D-3 pass with American Airlines. I'm definitely wanting to save money, but I also dont want to be stuck somewhere not able to get on a flight.
A flight so far is running around 1200, I would really like to get one under 1,000 if I were to buy one. I can fly stand-by for 200 each way.
Would it be worth it for me to fly stand-by or are the risks too great?
If I should buy a ticket, do you recommend bidding for one on Priceline?
