Need to know best days to look for good prices

Am out of most of my ff miles so the next trip Spring 2007 will be our own $$.

The trip will be rt San Diego to Boston. Boston return to SD will be 2 months later.

Second part will be rt Boston to Paris.

My husband insists I should ask which days of the week are cheaper to travel?..does anyone have advice on this?

Thanks for all the help.

For some markets and for certain periods of time, it's the same anyday. For others, it can be cheaper to fly out Tuesday to Thursday. Often, a Saturday night stay is required (which won't be a problem for you).

I just checked for SAN-BOS in March. Right now, lowest is $418 any day of the week. But if I checked for this August, some weekends are as high as $470, while Tue/Wed can be $405.

British Air and other European airlines have specials in the Spring. Sign up at their websites for announcements.

As for best days, I've been told Tues-Thur.

look on kayak.com and it will compare all airlines (it's not a booking site but will refer you to the site which is least expensive). I use this site often and find it very helpful.
