Cheaper weekday or weekend flight?

Jump to last reply

Contemplating 2-week family vacation next June once school is out (WAS to FCO and back by way of VCE). We could leave on Thursday (to Thursday) when school lets out. Or do Saturday (to Saturday), thinking husband’s work would prefer he take off in full weeks (he seems a little uncomfortable about taking off 2 wks anyway!). I guess we could even wait until during the next week to do Tues or Wed flights. Have you found that varying days makes much difference in flight cost (we will be buying 4 tickets!)? Or are there so many variables that the day chosen just doesn’t make a great difference? (I am currently trying to lay out the days ahead of time so I can have many choices on hotels since I think you don't buy flights until a few months prior to trip.) Thanks!
