Refundable fares

I am meeting my son on his way back from deployment (sometime in June); his ship is cruising from Pearl Harbor to San Diego. I will be flying from Charlotte, NC to Honolulu, cruise with the ship then fly back from San Diego back to Charlotte, NC...is there a 'cheaper' day of the week to book a refundable ticket via 'tripadvisor'?

You might take a look at Bing.com and some of the other online booking sites, you can look at several days and see. Some airlines will let you do a month view as well.

If you plan to take any more trips this year, or changing the ticket, you might consider the price of a non-refundable fare plus the change fee (which is generally $150) ... Refundable tickets are generally the full price ones ... and they aren't cheap!

The best prices to BOOK a ticket are generally Tuesdays around 3pm or so (EDT). This is because airlines re-evaluate their load factors and make changes on Tuesday mornings.

The best prices for TRAVELING are Tuesday and Wednesday.

I wasn't quite sure what you were asking.
