We've all heard advice that sounds something like this, "If you book your flights on a Tuesday at 3:15pm exactly six weeks before your vacation, you will get the best possible pricing." Easy peasy, right? Hmmm...not so much.
While advice like this abounds on the internet, it's not actually true. While you might actually get the best airfare at 3:15pm Tuesday six weeks before your trip, it's just a fluke. The formula isn't what saved your bacon (or your dollars).
