Disagree with this greatly. He's not buying tickets to a random city for vacation. He's going from Boston to a specific location for an event as such They don't usually add flights and these flights are jammed with pats fans. Just book the flight and be done with it is my opinion.

Don't worry about flights yet. Begin searching on Tuesdays, which is the day when you'll find the cheapest flights, in August/Sept.

This is terrible advice unless he simply does not care about price. Right now, airlines will jack up the prices due to the emotion of fans creating demand. Once the offseason hysteria slows down you will see the price of these flights come down significantly. It happens every year.

This is how to find the best price. As mentioned above, data has shown that Tuesdays followed next by Wednesdays are the best days to book flights for the lowest price. I have flown weekly or bi-weekly for 8 years with my job and found this strategy to be the nuts.

Sarcasm detector on the blink lately but pretty sure it is beeping since Lattimer specifically mentioned cost in both of his posts on this topic.

This seems like good advice.

I dunno, if I were an airline, and I sensed a demand for 100's (1000's?) of traveling fans...I'd add a flight!

Maybe, just maybe, there will be no airplane seats available from BOS to BNA that weekend, if you try to book 4-6 weeks in advance. Which side of that proposition would you want *your* money on?

Have you ever, in your life, heard someone say, "I tried to buy a plane ticket for next month--they're sold out!" Neither have I.

Re: New England General Discussion - Poker Room List in OP

I haven't been to twin Rivers in about 18 months and it's the same. I figured maybe, things would have changed, instead I got the floor yelling at a dealer because he told her seat open for a second time because it had been ten minutes since the first time he said it. Just fill the seat. I witnessed 45 minutes a dead spread out there while the list was 15+ long on 1/2nl. It's astounding how poorly that place is run.
