How far in advance do you typically book flights? I always have tried to book as far in advance as possible (even 6 months ahead if I knew the dates I needed). I always assumed that was the lowest fare and I could get the seat of my choice, usually. If a sale ocurred after I booked and a lower fare appeared, YX would give me a credit for the difference good toward future travel, so it was all good. Lately, though, I've been burned by flights being cancelled or a change in time that is less than desireable to me. So, how far ahead is a good time frame in general to book?
