@OP check all the DC airports. DCA was always priciest when I lived there, but it was so convenient that I'd always just deal.

Thanks for the feedback everyone, wasn't sure if that was reasonable or there was a possibility for it to drop soon.

Also yes we have Friday off and Monday is Labor* Day 😂

Check southwest. If price drops, you can rebook with no fees

I spend $700-900 flying sub-500 flights regularly. Stop being cheap. Either use miles or pay cash.

6 weeks out is generally the timeframe to get the cheapest ticket.

Other options I'm considering are SBI life, HDFC life which offices are available in my locality.
