I need some help making up my mind! I am planning to fly on United from Washington Dulles to Amsterdam in February, with little flexibility in my dates. The flight I have been watching has held steady at $646 round-trip for the past two months. Only about 10% of the seats have sold, and I keep waiting for United to drop the fare to entice more purchases. It’s now about 7 weeks out from my preferred dates. Should I just bite the bullet and purchase the ticket now?
In the past, I have found sale fares of under $450 in the off-season, specifically March and December, and those prices keep me hoping for a better fare. But perhaps time is running out and I should just stop waiting and buy. I welcome the wisdom of the RS crowd!
