First of all you must know how airlines work. How they set their prices. You must know that the prices are based on demand. If a flight sells well then it's seats will have a high price, while if it sells bad, prices will drop. For example it is cheaper to fly from Monday to Friday because not a lot of people are travelling then. Also if a company decides to lower their prices, it is likely that other companies will lower theirs as well. And this change in prices happens dynamically. It could happen when you are on the phone talking to your travel agent.

One think is certain. If you want to find cheap airline tickets you have to start your search early. At least 30 days earlier.

These tickets can be found on certain airline companies websites selling very cheap, but it gives you no flexibility. Also know that less people are travelling during winter which makes it the best season to find cheap seats. A good method would be to adjust your flight hours.

If price is the issue, you can adjust your departure hours and pay less money.
