Buying Plane Tickets - Lead Time

Planning a trip to Amsterdam in April 2023. Wondering what is the proper lead time to buy the cheapest air flights from US? Since this will be in tulip season, current flight information is misleading. Any advice?

I think the general consensus is that there is no solid way to know for sure, especially these days. What many people do is search on Google Flights and set up price alerts for dates that would work for you. This gives you an idea of what a "good" price for your dates/airports are. Some people track the prices for months and then jump on the tickets when/if the price drops.
