Flight-shopping advice?

Jump to last reply

I need to book 2 tickets from San Francisco to Paris, returning from London to San Francisco. I am trying to figure out whether to buy the tickets now, or if the rates are likely to get any better--I'd love strategy advice.
The details: I need a flight leaving June 14, returning around July 25. Last week the best deal I found was $1313, but with too short a layover; or $1426 more reasonably. This week the fares (looking on a Tuesday) are $1478.
Do I need to jump on this before the rates get worse? Or is it foolish not to wait til they drop?
Thanks for your voice of experience!!
