I have to see my Father for Xmas and I didn't think to buy my airplane ticket early!!! It's an international plane ticket and is going to cost too much since it's so near the holiday season...:crybaby:Does anyone know of a good way to get more affordable plane tickets? Is anyone here an owner of a plane??? Waaaaahhhh!!!!! LOL! Please let me know if you there are some things I can try! Thanks so much!

My niece just bought a ticket from Houston to Frankfort, Germany for $250. I will have to ask which company she used as she just ordered it yesterday.

Try Cheap Airfare, Hotel Reservations, Car Rentals - Kayak.com to see who has the cheapest deal going.

Also sign up for international carriers' email list. I'm on British Airway's list and once a week or so they'll email me their hot deals.

Try to alter your schedule a little bit. Can you fly out on a Tuesday or Wednesday and do the same on your dates flying back? If you do a weekend or a Friday, you'll pay a lot more than during the week.
