How to find great airfare deals: Factor in timing

Knowing the right moment to buy is the holy grail for Web fare watchers—and each has his own advice. Rick Seaney of farecompare.com, for example, advises buying on Tuesday around 3 p.m., since domestic sales often begin late Monday and it takes about a day for other carriers to match the prices. George Hobica of airfarewatchdog.com suggests waiting until the discount carriers start selling: JetBlue and Southwest only release tickets six and four months out, respectively, so the major players most likely won’t reduce fares until then.
