I am starting to look for plane tickets to kauai Hawaii for next July (25th and coming back that following thursday or friday) I am a rookie when it comes to looking for tickets. When is the best time to get them? Now, in a month, 3 months before? Which sites have the best prices? I could fly out of chicago, minneapolis, or omaha though chicago would be my first choice. Thanks in advance!

As early as possible, and you should be able to find them with 1 stop for under $1000

You can setup price alerts. O'hare would probably be your best bet since it's a large airport.

That is a great question, I don't think he had a lot of free time to do much flying after he joined NASA but he was a test pilot and fighter jock before that. I envision him teaching the Blue Angels stuff.

He flew an F-86 Saber so I see him flying some hopped up P-51 or homebrew plane that has a bomber engine modded into it. Something fast. I don't picture Gene dropping into a lake to fish or camp for the night then fly out.

I always was in awe of the common pilot who flys into these tiny airports to have breakfast or attend some fly-in event. Rich or poor it is always good to have money.

Just booked a flight to Philidelphia on Oct 31st for $250. Was shocked at the price, but this was through Frontier Airlines website.

I use Orbitz a lot. Heck, you can even type "Denver to Phoenix" into Google and it'll give you a neat result. Kayak is good as well.

this is the best policy.. IF you have a probelem then it is the airlines proble..

if you use a automated travel agent web site like orbitz expedia travelocity and there is a mist connect canceled flight the airlines will try to weasel out of it and tell you to call that travel agency to get it fixed especially if it is ciaos at teh airport which it usually is with canceled or major delayed flights..

I'd use various sites to compare re the fares and look at the routings and then go to the airlines wed sites to the fare..

another hint is to call a Travel agent who can sell packages that can give commissions .. sometimes booking flights and hotel or even a car rental will allow them to get you even cheaper seats..

Might even be worth the hassle of doing SWA to HNL and taking a separte flight to LIH.. thank way you get the bags fly free and ultimately may save you money but will have at least one extra stop..

ask the travel agent to use Blue sky vacations they are the best.. You may have to be flexible on departure cities..

Always found flying during the middle of the week much cheaper.

It is pretty expensive. You should probably drive. Plus, when you get there, you can run over the wild chickens.
