|Subject: Re: UK-US tickets for July 04|
Although there's no way to know when is the perfect time to purchase air tickets, my feeling is that for your July trip, it's too soon now. Your dates aren't flexible, so that means you can't wait too long to buy, but most airlines haven't a clue about load factors, even for high season, so fares aren't any bargain. You'll most likely pay more for July than February in any case.
Here's something else to consider if you want to make sure you get the best deals: look at an alternate airport. Fort Wayne isn't the biggest place in the world, & Indianapolis, which is about 100 miles away, often has better buys. You might also check South Bend, about 80 miles away.
Keep lurking on air ticket sites to get a feel for when fares may improve.
Good luck, Gail In Eugene but never for long
