When to buy air tickets..

We all wonder what will be the optimal time to buy an air ticket. It typically is a couple of weeks beforehand, but if you have already missed that, there is this new website which helps.

The site gives a graph of fares for your destination across a few months, and gives you recommendations on whether they are expected to rise or fall. They recently added a lot of cities (were only seattle previously), and chances are you will find your city there.

A really useful "web 2.0" website which is not about social networking :).


  1. Yeah :-) This website started with Boston and Seattle. It's out of USC and U of Wash in Seattle. They have some 6 billion records to predict. And they are also trying to come up with Hotel fares prediction. is good too, not as sharp as the one you have cited.
