flight price dropHi,
So I'm thinking of traveling this summer, and I'm wondering if airlines typically drop their flight prices closer to travel dates or not during the high season. Basically wondering if I should book soon, or if it's worth waiting until closer to the date (and if so how close?) Thanks!

8See FAQ #10 above the USA branch on flying on the cheap within and from the USA.
"i know that hear in canada you will rarely find any last minuted deal to anywhere but the carribean " That's because between Air Canada and Wesjet ore your only choices as a duopoly on top of the high tariffs and airport fees they have to pay. So the cheaper option if flying between east & west is to come down the USA by bus, fly across and another bus back up. For example if you're going from Vancouver to Montreal you would take one bus from Vancouver to Seattle; fly from Seattle to Burlington, VT; and transfer to another bus up to Montreal. This is assuming you can enter the USA on the visa waiver program or get a B1 or B2 visa.
"kayak.com" In Mexico, Aeromexico is the only airline syndicated there (on Kayak). Others such as Volaris, Interjet, VivaAerobus and Magnicharters aren't syndicated on Kayak so you have to search their respective sites and their fares are generally better than Aeromexico. Sometimes it's not much different rather you book ahead or show up at the airport. The airlines' website are Thorntree linked on FAQ #5 above the Mexico branch.
In Central America it's a duopoly between Copa and TACA for international travel across Central America in A319,320, 321 or Emb190 jets (Boeing 737 or Emb 190 with Copa). Which means they're EXPENSIVE. Within each country there's a Taca Regional subsidiary which are more reasonable in ATR 42 or ATR72 turbo prop planes.
In other words, depends on which country you're traveling in or from, the etiquette varies.

9If you going to do that you best bet would probably be to just fly out of the USA. on my last trip i check prices from Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Maine. with the exception of Maine all the prices were about the same. that said each of the ones from Canada ended up taking me to Montreal at some point. but in the end i flew out of Bangor, Maine and they kept me about 300$ richer even after including the gas it took me to get to Bangor
