The Cheapest Time To Buy Airline Tickets

The Observer points out that economist Makoto Watanabe has determined, using the formula ∏A = gUG + min(k – g, (1 – g)(1 – r)), that the best time to buy airline tickets is at noon, eight weeks before flying.

An economist, Makoto Watanabe, has calculated that the optimum time to buy an airline ticket is eight weeks in advance of flying. His yet-to-be-published findings also suggests that airline tickets are cheaper when purchased in the afternoons, rather than the mornings, prompting him to speculate that airlines are assuming business travellers will book their tickets at work in the morning on the company account, whereas leisure travellers are more likely to book from home in the afternoon.
