How Do I Get a Cheap Flight this Thanksgiving?

Dear Editors,

I want to fly home for the Thanksgiving but airfare seems really high. How can I get a cheap flight this holiday season?


Dear Jane,

Can you believe Turkey Day is just over four weeks away? You’re certainly not alone in your quest to find a cheap flight, which means there’s stiff competition for the lowest-priced seats. Fares aren’t likely to go down, so I suggest you pull the trigger on your flight home, stat.

How To: Flexible Dates Search for Airfare

With October in full swing, many travelers are thinking about buying their airfare for Thanksgiving. You may have read my post on the Cheapest Days to Fly over Thanksgiving, but do you know the most efficient way to find that cheap airfare? It’s called the Flexible Dates Search tool, and it only takes a few clicks.

So when I got a press release about Avantair, a fractional jet operator, I decided to conduct a Q&A with Steven Santo, the company’s CEO to find out more. Yes, this is out of most people’s reach, but it’s fun to dream, isn’t it?
