    Dates are very likely to be the 24, 25, and 26 (last weekend) of April, but there is no guarantee. Tickets will not go on sale until after the lineup is announced in the 3rd or 4th week of January.

    Unless there is a ticket presale in which case you should sign up to the microcommunity on this website so you get an e-mail saying so. They didn't have one last year but they have in years passed, they go on sale prior to lineup release.

    Unfortunately you need the code you get from buying your Coachella tickets online to sign up for the microcomunity. Your best hope for presale tickets would be waiting for the code to get leaked here.

    I dunno. I hear booking things 6 months in advance has no $$$ benefit.... Of course, dont wait until march, but still.


    For non-holiday domestic travel, Bainton recommends that travelers never buy tickets more than 90 days away from their departure date. "You want to watch the 21-day mark because some carriers will file their lowest fares as a 21-day advance purchase. And then the next window is at 14 days, which you really don't want to go by unless you're feeling lucky," Bainton says. Getting a good ticket price depends on the competition in the markets you're flying to and from and the supply of seats versus the demand.

    I work for an airline. Normally, you would be correct.

    However, the majority of major airlines are cutting capacity in the third and fourth quarters (anywhere from 7-9%) of 2008. Less capacity=less seats. Simple supply and demand. Less seats + same demand = higher fares. Fares are going to go up.

    Fares are already too high. No round trip in the continental USA should EVER cost more than $300. Yet it costs $500 to go to NYC from LA when it used to cost $200.

    Right now, the fuel on that trip alone costs more than $300 per person.

    Also, I don't know what you're talking about-look on Expedia-the cost of a roundtrip ticket from JFK to LAX in September is just slightly over $300.

    I've been checking farecompare, cheaptickets, travelocity, expedia etc. since yesterday, it's > $500 flying to PSP. I notice airfares are usually lower Wednesdays or Thursdays so ...

    For 2006 thru 2008 - I booked my flights to PSP around January (?), paid > $250 and <$350 (?). I'll book my flight once I decide am really going OR when airfare goes down to around $300+. Flights to LA coming out much cheaper around >$200 and < $300 however, I don't really want to drive 2 hours or spend the $$$ in gas.

    for me it's cheaper and more convenient to flight into santa ana or ontario than lax. well, not cheaper but around $10-20 difference, which is not bad at all. but these actual prices are ridiculous.
