Is it wise to purchase airline tickets this far in advance? I'm going to visit my girlfriend for Valentine's Day and her birthday in February. She will be in London this upcoming year. The tickets I'm finding range from $500-$700 (ORD-LHR). I'm looking for input from the MR community, this will be the 1st time I'll be traveling to Europe since I usually travel to Asia. Is this the general price range, that being that I can purchase my tickets maybe in November and still get these prices? My guess is that the answer will be no. Experiences? Thoughts?
