Hi. My husband and I will be going to Malaysia for two weeks for a tour. We need to fly out of Los Angeles (LAX) on June 20 and depart Kuala Lumpur (KUL) on July 7. We'd like to fly Cathay if possible but right now the flights we want are $1800 a person for economy. That feels like a lot.
I know no one can predict flights, but I'm wondering if 1) what I'm seeing now ($1650-1800) is pretty typical for the flights we want this time of year and I shouldn't expect much less, 2) whether or not Cathay has a tendency to drop prices closer to departure date, and 3) if Cathay flights from LAX to KUL usually book quickly for June and we're risking flights getting booked up if we hesitate much longer.
Any thoughts on whether or not we're wise to keep waiting and, if so, for how long, would be much appreciated. Many thanks!!
