The cheapest day to fly is…
The cheapest day to fly is…

Airfares tend to be astronomical these days, but there are still a few tricks at budget travelers’ disposal. One is to fly on Tuesdays, which a new analysis by Cheapair.com shows is the cheapest day to fly, trailed closely by Wednesday. (Sunday is the most expensive.) The study also shows that the “sweet spot” to get the best fares occurs by booking between one and three months in advance. To that end, the study debunks a myth: that booking your flight in close proximity to your departure date will score you a sweet deal. “That’s left over from the years when airlines were less healthy,” said Cheapair’s CEO. “They would often find themselves with lots of empty seats and would have fire sales to fill them.”
