Likelihood of Air Canada or Westjet putting on a seat sale in April?

Does anyone know the likelihood of Air Canada or Westjet putting on a seat sale in April?

I was looking to fly from Edmonton to Paris in July and would really rather not pay full price. Right now tickets are hovering around $1300

Is 1300 in lowest Y all that bad? I could see J being cheaper over the summer. But Y? If anything, as we get closer prices should go up. A Y sale would not make much sense at all at peak tourism travel time. A J sale when business travel is slow is of course a different story.

BTW welcome to the zoo.

Agreed. Flights to Europe in the middle of July are not going to get any cheaper. And though $1300 is extortion, itís comparitively a decent deal compared to what you might pay if you wait.

If if youíre traveling with someone else maybe get the WestJet rbc card and use your companion flight to LGW. Other than that, I donít know of any way youíre going to save much money vs the prices youíre seeing right now.

Agreed with the posters above that we get close to summer (peak season for economy leisure travel to Europe), prices are only likely to go up. Have you looked to see if there are cheaper fares connecting through the US?

+1. A Y sale is not impossible but quite unlikely, usually depends on predicted load factors and advance sales. With a strong Euro (vs CAD) this may entice a few more Europeans to visit Canada this summer... From time to time, there has been a J sale in April or May - but not always.

Why would that be extortion? Seems like a pretty standard fare to me.

!. It's 10% off base fare. Not 10% of the price. That matters based on the destination

2.




3. Also note the "Book By" info. Above it shows 11:59 PM MDT

Below, it says "11:59 PM from your city of departure in Canada"
