I started researching airline prices for my trip to Boston in February. A round trip flight from Washington, DC on Jet Blue is currently priced at $128 per person. That seems like a really good price, but I talked to some friends who suggested waiting a few months to see if prices drop farther.
I always thought ticket prices went up over time, but they said airlines often advertise lower prices when flying to a cold place like Boston in the middle of winter. The ticket is so cheap at this point that I’m not sure how much more I could save. This is a leisure trip and I’m not willing to board a 6 am flight to save myself $20.
So I’m not sure what to do. Should I go ahead and purchase tickets now or wait and see if the prices fall once the cold weather arrives?
