As oil prices continue to fluctuate, airlines are consolidating flights, cutting unprofitable routes, and using smaller planes. Though domestic flights have been cut as much as 14 percent between June 2007 and June, translating to fewer seats for sale and less desperation on behalf of the airlines to fill them, there’s still a discernible surge in flyer demand, especially around the holidays. Factor in a smattering of “peak travel surcharges” and a slew of a la carte airline fees and you have a recipe for a pricey trip.  But there is hope if you act quickly. Find some of the best fares out there by referencing these money-saving tips for booking holiday flights, then compare airline rates online via ShermansTravel's nifty Travel Search tool.
