@TequilaSunrise:  Depends where exactly you’re flying from. I’ve found the best prices flying into Billings, Montana. I would look into Frontier Airlines & see what their routes are, they tend to be the cheapest I’ve found.

ok well i don’t know about airports but a family member who is a travel agent is helping us book for our honeymoon and said that about 50-60 days out is the best time to book for prices…

@TequilaSunrise:  I’m just outside of detroit, i’ve heard flying out of flint is cheaper, also, check allegient air. Their closest hub is in Toledo OH but they tend to be a lot cheaper.

@TequilaSunrise:  Indianapolis is on the Frontier route, so I would check out Indianapolis-Billings. I’ve found that a lot of flights from the Midwest to Northwest involve flying through Denver, so you may not find anything cheaper. 

I agree that you’ll probably get better prices closer to your honeymoon date.

I read recently to look at airfare prices on a Tuesday or Wednesday as that is when the airlines release their lowest “new” fares. Saw that in my Budget Travel magazine. 🙂

You might be a bit far out for well priced tickets. As a pp said 3 months is typically the best when airlines start getting more reasonable to fill seats. A year ahead they have no reason to be cheap

I’m a travel agent…not sure when you are looking to travel but if you are able to fly Southwest you get 2 free checked bags per person.  All other airlines in the US charge a minimum of $25-$35 for each bag/each way-which will increase ticket price. You can go to most airline websites and put in Route Map in the website Search box to see where they fly/to from.  Personally, I fly Southwest whenver I can.  Another suggestion…never book the last flight of the day, no matter the airline.  If you book the last flight of the day and it is delayed/cancelled etc…it could mess up your entire trip.
