IS IT CHEAPER TO WAIT FOR A LAST MINUTE SALE? | Budget Travel Warehouse Inc. London Ontario [cached]

Even if a flight isn't full, it is not smart for an airline to slash prices on the remaining seats at the last minute, said Robert Kokonis, president of AirTrav Inc., an airline consultancy firm.
"If you dump seats at the last-minute, then consumers will hold off booking now," Kokonis said, which ultimately hurts an airline's yields. Planes in North America are full these days as airlines report high load factors. For example, United Airlines, the biggest carrier, has an 86 per cent load factor, year to date. That means on a 150-seat airplane, only 21 seats go unfilled, so airlines can afford to forgo a few empty seats, if they know the average ticket price is high enough to offset selling cheaper seats. So for consumers who are still waiting to make a booking for the peak holiday travel season for lower prices, Kokonis has simple advice. "Don't wait. If you want to wait until two weeks before departure, they're not going to drop. If anything, they will keep increasing. And for those looking ahead for sun destinations to March Break, Kokonis said the ideal booking time is about two and half to three months before departure.
