I'm looking for the best time to book a flight from NYC to Honolulu for Christmas -- I'm afraid I've already missed the best deals and wonder if I should snatch up the next decent fare or wait for something better. [Of course, special snowflake details inside.] [more inside]

International travel question. I'm planning a trip to France next March. Is there any consensus on what fares are going to do in the next three months? Should I book now or should I trust that fares will start to reflect the fact that fuel costs are down and wait until later? I know this question has been asked previously
but that wasn't when the price of oil had dropped by 60%+

I just moved to London from California last month and I'm keen to make the most of my time here by hitting as many European cities as possible. I loved being able to use farecast, farecompare, etc to see where I could go each weekend in the US and where the ultra low fares were to be had.
Is there a similar service in Europe? Any way to be notified about cheap weekend fares from the UK would be fantastic.
Thanks to the hive brain.

Well, I did it.
Due to most unfortunate circumstances, I flew on an airplane for the first time in 8 years. As awful as the reasons were, the entire world has been opened up to me and I am now extremely excited by my renewed ability to travel the skies, and seek advice. Much length follows. [more inside]

Is it possible to get an ultra-cheap roundtrip out of the DFW area to anywhere, just for the sake of flying? I have a nearly-4 year old son who would love a plane ride, but I haven't seen any truly cheap tickets since the Southwest Airlines "Peanut Fares" days. If not, I'll just wait for a real vacation to come up one day.

How can I watch prices for a roundtrip flight for a few-day visit somewhere? The dates aren't as important as cheap fares-- pretty much any time through this coming April would be fantastic. I'd just like to watch for lower prices. How can I do this?

How far in advance, or how close to the time, is the most advantageous time to purchase airline tickets in order to get the cheapest fares? For instance, if I were planning to travel in early August, and it's late April now, should I buy my ticket now, or should I wait until closer to the time (and how close is the "sweet spot")? Are there risks of the price going up substantially (more than $100)? This refers to U.S. travel (SEA-ATL in this case), traveling mid-week, with a weekend stay.

Need an rss feed for flights from New Orleans, Baton Rouge, and Lafayette for Netvibes.com. Anybody know of a feed service or a way to work around getting it on the page?

How cheaply can I fly? Has the internet brought us "last minute deals" or are they just travel agent scams?
