When Should You Book Your Flight Well In Advance?

Aruba Bound
Generally the travel experts recommend that you book air travel no more than 7 weeks in advance.

Today I would like to take a moment to contradict that advice, especially if you are flying during a peak travel time such as Christmas.

For our upcoming visit to Aruba over Christmas and New Years, we purchased our tickets on February 23 for $709.40. Today, September 3, the price for the same itinerary is $1648 per person. That is for a coach class seat in both directions.
