Cheap Air Fare

Contrary to Popular Belief, Some Cheap Flights Still Exist

Airlines have begun cutting the number of flights to stop the money leak that's been threatening them since filling up has been costing more. CNN asked Hobica and Candy Harrington, editor of travel magazine Emerging Horizons, for tips on how to find cheap air fares among the more expensive offerings.

Some of their advice sounds similar to tips we've heard before like flying during the slowest days of the week (midweek, midday departures on days other than Monday and Friday); flying during the slowest times of year (between Labor Day and Thanksgiving); flying to popular destinations at unpopular times; and buying tickets during the cheapest times of day (early morning).

If you live close to two cities with airports, check fares on both. One city might be a lot cheaper than the other. My mom and I are traveling together this summer. She lives in Houston; I live in Austin. Flying out of Austin was about $30 to $50 cheaper one-way than flying out of Houston and that included non-stop flights.

Summer is usually busier than the rest of the year, but, I am telling you this summer every damn flight is PACKED. I have been flying for 8 years and have never seen anything like it.
