Try midweek pricing. Weekends are usually going to be higher with people wanting to travel those days because of kids, work schedules, etc. Tuesdays and Thursday are coming to mind as the "cheapest" days to fly. But then again, cheap is relative. LOL
I agree w/Meg - if you don't have restrictions as to when to travel - I've found better seating and prices traveling mid-week.
I find that Tuesday is the cheapest....usually.
I got oasis cancun for 1156$ tx in. for a monday departure feb 23rd, that same deal applied for the tuesday as well but for every other day the price was 1415$ and higher, so i guess if ure looking for a deal weekends arent the best bet.
We play around with the dates before we book. It was actually cheaper for us to stay an extra day this last time then to fly home the Monday after Thanksgiving. But, we usually fly in and out on Tuesdays or Wednesdays.
Tue, Wed, Thu will get you $150 each way form SFO.
I would take a look at weekend flights as well as during the week to determine which flight was "best". We fly out of Salt Lake City and the only direct flights are on weekends. The flights during the week are $40-$60 cheaper but you change planes in either Dallas/Ft Worth or Atlanta depending on the airline. This turns a four and a half hour trip to a 9-10 hour trip. Not worth the savings to me.
