I'm actually on the fence about booking more than 1-2 months out on DL currently. In the past I usually booked 6-8 months out. The vast majority of the time (but not always) I found I got the best fare. Sure I knew I was going to have a few rounds of schedule changes in the meantime, but to me that was part of the "fun." Who knows what DL's schedules will look like months down the road. Right now it's almost impossible to book anything in June because so many people had pre-existing reservations. So while that is a case for booking early, I have had to cancel so many things because of COVID and it's a huge combination of credits and refunds I just don't have much confidence in DL to keep a schedule more than 1 or 2 months out.
