People at CheapOair spent the last year analyzing over four million airline trips. They tracked ticket prices from 320 days before takeoff all the way up until the day before, calculating precisely which day each one hit its lowest point.

Fifty-four days before takeoff is, on average, when domestic airline tickets are at their absolute lowest price, said Huffington Post.  If you are not able to book 54 days on the head, you should book between 104 to 29 days before your trip -- within the “prime booking window” -- for the lowest possible prices. In this window, ticket prices typically hover within $10 of the lowest price they’ll ever reach.
