My daughter has been accepted for a callback to the performing arts program at an east coast university (we’re in California). The appointed date is March 1. Checking airline ticket pricing gets her a round trip to the airport nearest the Uni on Feb 28, for about $230. This is as of today.
Is it best that I book the flight now, or would I do better to do it some time in February, in the hope that the price drops as the airline scrambles to fill seats?
Because it might be relevant to the question, the airports are LAX and RDU (Raleigh-Durham International, in NC). And currently, the best price is with American Airlines.
kaylasdad99 and others, one thing to know is that there is a 24 hour cancellation for airline tickets more than 7 (or fewer) days out. Always just buy a ticket if you see one that seems reasonable and cancel it if you find something better or get a better deal or find more information. Searching for an itinerary repeatedly drives up the cost- it may come back down but not guaranteed.
