    I'm currently 59 days out from my trip and have yet to buy airfare. I keep hearing about this "magic window" so many days out that airfare is at its cheapest. Can anyone recall what it is? With CET implementing Resort Fees, I need to save as much as possible. Thanks!

    Don't know how it is in the states, but here in the netherlands its best to buy your tickets about 5 to 6 weeks before your trip on a tuesday. A tip I did not used myself. LOL

    What airline you wanting???

    I am a frequent SW customer....and for the most part --- the cheapest fares come in the 6-8 week window range. So you are getting near the window.

    SW is a little different, as you can rebook, so you always want to error on the side of booking too early, rather than too late. (assuming you fly more than once a year).

    I'm not really picky about airlines, but I would prefer a morning, nonstop flight. Right now Southwest provides that, but they're a little steeper than others at the moment.
