When to buy ticket for air travel to Europe this summer?

I am flying to Copenhagen in late June, but I haven't yet bought a ticket. As I watch the fares bounce around on Kayak.com and other sites, I am wondering what the opinions on this board are regarding the best timing for buying a ticket (for Copenhagen in particular, and Europe in general). Buy now or wait?

Buy the ticket anywhere you find the right price. No site is cheaper than another thought the airline sites, themselves, might be $5 cheaper because some general site with charge a small processing fee. It is little like buy stock - the probability of buying the cheapest ticket is low because that is a matter of timing and luck. Second, some people pass up the cheap ticket thinking it might go low and then it doesn't. You need to set a reasonable price you are willing to pay in June, from CA maybe a $1000 to 1100 if it gets close, buy it and don't look back. If you need to save a couple hundred bucks, there are easier place to save in your travel plans than trying to grab a cheap ticket that might never exist.
