Generally speaking the closer you are to your departure date, the higher the fare gets, but this is not always true and very much depends on a few things. Stay connected on exciting new adventures, travel ideas, collaborations and tip to help you find your story. Where are you flying? And from where?
The answer to this common question is actually a little more complicated than most travel sites make it seem. There is no one size fits all answer here, because different airlines operate differently in different regions. Thus, they might more closely follow a similar pricing pattern to domestic flights in the US than international flights.
Are you flying on a major airline or a budget airline? Are there multiple airlines serving your intended destination?
Are you traveling during the summer? The beginning or the middle? Has school started?
Is there a holiday happening on or around your travel dates? Expert Tip: Some sites have been known to increase the prices when you search for them again to make it seem like availability is running low.
One of my favorite sites to search for flights is Skyscanner. I personally think so because data analysis is subject to interpretation. For example, their look up table indicates that booking a flight from San Francisco to Los Angeles was cheapest 7 and 12 weeks in advance. For Seattle to Las Vegas, it was cheapest 14 and 16 weeks in advance. For Los Angeles to Chicago, it was 2 weeks in advance.
The data is all over the place. So can we learn anything from this?

Adventures fill your soul. As much as you can, as far as you can, as long as you can. Life's not meant to be lived in one place. If you have a flock in your garden or yard, cherish them. Born on the premises, they will be your neighbours all their lives. They can live more than 10 years and will always be close by, their fortunes inexorably interwoven with yours.
They may be cheeky or chirpy or a damned nuisance when they nest over bedroom windows and wake one with raucous chatterings at dawn.
Leading otherwise blameless lives, they dispose of pests and weed seeds, although sometimes shredding the crocuses. They are an increasingly threatened species as habitats are concreted-over for new building, or nesting holes are blocked up in newly-renovated eaves.
They fly as far as a mile away from home. They do not return to the domestic patch at night, but gather in hedgerows, roosting with sparrows from other clans and tribes. Urban, suburban and farmyard sparrows join in chattering flocks and descend upon fields where cereals are ripening. There, they feast.
The native garden or farmyard is, for once, silent, and the householder may sleep late if he is on holiday too. Passer domesticus followed Man out of Africa.
They have been with us as long as we have made shelters and cultivated crops. They were introduced to the Americas and spread widely. Years ago I made a trip around the globe, the northern hemisphere, and I noticed not only that I encountered sparrows everywhere I went, but that their plumage differed subtly from location to location.
