Best days of the week to fly

I've heard international flights are less crowded on certain days of the week than others. Anyone know which days are best for flying from California (San Francisco) to London? Thanks!

I believe that flights on Tuesday and Thursday are suppose to be less crowded. Fares are usually cheaper on those days too.

However, with the economy like it is, I think you will find flights less crowded on just about every day of the week.

Yes, Tues and Thurs are usually best (very general rule though) with Fri and Sun being the worst.

We actually have a Sunday flight to Frankfurt in early Sept. A quick look at the available seats showed a plane that was not full which normally would be full in a better economy.

Our connecting flight to Chicago is more than half empty, which makes me worry that it might get cancelled.
