Travel tip of the week:

  • When boarding the plane only put one bag in the overhead bin until you are sure there’s room for extras.  If everyone throws their extra bag into the overhead bin there won’t be room for all the rollaboards, which inevitably leads to gate-checking and delays.  Check out my post for more tips on carry-on suitcases.

  1. well this morning, i meant 12ish am, i realized i had forgotten to purchase the ticket that was put on a 24-hr hold…the price went from $103 to $260 for a one way Aus-lax due in 14 days. bummer aside, has anyone experienced this? could be for a paid or award ticket that was on-hold,, how do you make sure you dont miss it?
    about the 1way ticket, should i hold out hopes that a better price may come back or should i go ahead & book it? it was $300+ a week ago.

  2. @dj To help decide if you should buy the ticket or not check out the news story in this post on best time to buy. If you wait until 3 p.m. ET Tuesday to buy like it recommends in the story I can’t guarantee your price will be better (because ticket prices can vary by the minute), but if you’re a risk taker it might be worth trying the story’s method. As I’m sure you know the closer you get to a flight the higher the price typically gets so if your flight is soon it might be best to book it now so you don’t suffer any more financial losses. Good luck to you and let us know how things go.
