I am a high school student from semi-rural Tennessee, and I am taking a trip this June along with two others, (from the 22-30) to go to FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America) National Convention in Anaheim, Ca. I have been searching for flights out of Knoxville (TYS), but the average price from most of the air travel sites is about 350USD before tax. Does anyone have any advice on buying tickets? I am flying in and out on a Tuesday to save money,and one of my only limitations realy are that leave a day before or after the 22 of june, and I must fly out of Knoxville(TYS) or Chattanooga (CHA) When is the best time to buy right now, especially with the economy on the decline, and what about bidding on tickets? Is it advised, does it really save that much? Could I get some sort of student discount?
