Expensive Flights On Fridays

Expensive Flights

The worst day to buy a plane ticket is a Friday, according to analysis of worldwide ticket prices. The study revealed plane tickets bought on Fridays are 13% higher than those on Sundays. The reason is believed to be that those taking holiday tend to book discount trips on weekends, while those flying for business purposes tend to book at the end of the working week.

Within Europe people should plan to buy their tickets 140 days in advance if they wish to get the cheapest ticket, while those purchasing domestic flights within the US can buy theirs 57 days in advance. Airlines will not start to manage the price of fares until about five or six months in advance for international trips, meaning buying any time before then could result in an increased price.
