Other than $, is there any reason not to book Alitalia flights way ahead?

Jump to last reply

We're planning a trip to Amalfi coast in October, flying from Boston to Naples. I found an Alitalia RT that is not a bargain but seems to be what is generally the fare these days (about $1300 each). It is non-stop Boston to Rome, then a 2-3 hour layover before flight to Naples. It would get us into Naples (theoretically anyway) before noon, which would leave plenty of time to get to Amalfi hotel. Return flight is at crack of dawn from Naples but we could stay the night before in Naples and would get us back into Boston in the afternoon with time to spare for getting home to NH. So my question is: other than the potential of missing a bargain fare (which is slight), is there a downside to my booking so early? I feel like these are good flights for reasons of convenience but am a little sceptical about Alitalia. If anyone has any experience or opinions about this, I'd really appreciate feedback.
Thanks a lot.
