Check flight prices in the AM and PM .. prices swing alot.
My last flights would change between $1600 to $850 in the course of a a few days .
Booking 9 months out is the statistical sweet spot for prices.
I ran all my alerts and used hopper up until five days before we left.Nope.
Its under 6 weeks (conscious of the fact that doesn't work for a lot of people)
But the above sounds like hard work!
I always put in rough dates in hopper.
Then when I get an alert I play around with dates.
Last year's japan trip was booked with less than 13 days to wheels up. The trip before to the US was just shy of a month out. Both trip under a grand total and on QF
The most recent trip to Japan was about a month but that was on FF points (most people thinks that’s impossible too!)
JAL have Syd to Haneda return in Feb 2021 PE for just over $1800 per person!
How about travel insurance to pay for your stay in a local hospital in you get COVID-19! Pity you can't get it.Cathay Pacific are offering unlimited changes free of charge on all new tickets. You’ll probably want travel insurance to cover the cost of your airfare should CP fall into receivership before your scheduled date of departure though.
