My friend works in Airline Pricing, it's actually a manual spreadsheet that they update. With dynamic pricing variables.

like

It's all based on fare buckets, they price out the fare buckets each day and the lowest fare bucket is the cheapest ticket they're willing to sell for the flight. You're not going to get a cheaper flight than the one with seats remaining in the lowest fare bucket. People say 3-6 months out because most people don't plan that far in advance so all the lowest fare buckets are still available.

You bet! Their alert feature is really useful. Set your planned trip into it and setup alerts for when they predict it to be the lowest. Pretty darn accurate.

I'm looking at tickets from early Feb to end it Jun. It's $120-130 now. Usually it's like $80-90 last year, if you buy two months in advance and not holidays. All airlines are the same.

^D1 really! Any rules of thumb you know? I heard the lowest price comes at 6 months for international and 3 months for domestic in advance.

Thanks D1! What I'm seeing now is the price from Feb to Jun is the lowest. And it bounces back in July with additional ~$20.

Thanks A1! Great App! Playing with it right now! Hopper predicts a drop of $50-60 for a round trip in a week. Then I'll be slightly higher than normal.

Airlines sometimes eliminate routes in a new year. Prices can go up if a competing airline stopped flying the same route as your current airline.

A friend of mine who I’d confided in about being gay and sworn to secrecy has told another person who somehow knew my (closet) bf’s friends and so all his friends knew and he’s just found out when trying to come out to them that they knew. Whilst my friend wouldn’t have used my name, the situation would have been unique to my bf and I and I’m left feeling quite betrayed that the friend broke my trust. Am I right to be annoyed despite it being 2 years ago-ish? (My bf only just found this now)
