小编摘要:感恩节就要到了,圣诞节也临近了,其实元旦假期也就在眼前了,大家一定都会想要给自己放一个假,和家人朋友外出旅行。可是口袋却空空,那该怎么办呢。


 

If you haven’t booked your flight for Thanksgiving, be prepared to pay up: Ticket prices around the holiday will be 6% to 12% higher than last year.

您还没订感恩节的机票?那你可要做好心理准备了:节日里的机票比去年同期高出6%到12%。

With the economy still looking bleak, airlines have cut thousands of seats around the holidays, which means for many, there will be fewer empty seats with only high-priced ones available.

According to the Los Angeles Times, airlines are not only predicting fewer flyers this year, but many carriers are also struggling with their own financial problems. Jet fuel prices and the costs of labor have increased since last year. Expenses have outpaced airline revenue in the first nine months of the year, and airline stocks have fallen about 25%.

Also, mergers have decreased competition in the industry, which have driven prices skyward. United and Continental merged about a year ago (although they still operate as two separate airlines), and Southwest acquired AirTran Airways earlier this year. Plus, airline officials are concerned about an Obama administration proposal to increase airline taxes. Altogether, it’s no wonder that we’ve seen airlines increase fares this year. Six of the biggest carriers have raised fares nine times in 2011.

So what can you do to get the cheapest flights for the holidays? If you’re still looking to book a flight for Thanksgiving, you might be stuck paying more to get home. But there are often still last-minute deals if you’re willing to gamble. Using price alerts on sites like Kayak can help you know when ticket prices have dipped.

想要在节假日回家的朋友们肯定是要破费了,不过您可以随时关注网站上的信息,有些秒杀的抢票可以让您在最后一秒里拿到实惠!

If you’re traveling around Christmas, there’s still time to get a good deal. Experts expect cheap ticket prices around the first week of December, before they start spiking the following week. If you’re willing to get up when the sun’s still down, early morning flights tend to be cheapest. And they also tend to be on-time more often than afternoon and evening flights.

如果您是想在圣诞节出发的话,那么还是有时间可以买到便宜机票的。专家预计在12月的第一个星期会有打折机票。红眼航班也是很好的选择,所以,朋友,看好了您就赶紧出手吧!
