Hey guys my family and I are planning to go to Sri Lanka this year for the summer holidays. We've heard from someone that booking (Economy Class) at the end of October yields the cheapest flights but we've also heard that July/August is the best time to book. When do you guys think is the best time to book for a flight? And is it true that airlines jack up the prices if a certain date is being searched on their website?

* I forgot to add 'repeatedly' between 'being' and 'searched'

You could probably ride for free with the Australian Navy

Any tips on how to respond to the Enhanced Questions accurately so that you don't end up holidaying in PNG instead?

I fly between CMB & MEL a couple of times a year. If your planning on going during the December holidays it tends to get quite expensive due to the expat commuinty coming down Its sometimes even get a seat on the CMB to where ever your transit is before the MEL leg. At the moment you can get either MALAYSIAN or THAI for under $1100 depending on the days your flying. Im holding back on buying mine as I fly SINGAPORE and their rates arent the best at the moment. Even Emirates does great rates, but try and get the MEL-SIN-CMB ticket as the other on that flies through DUBAI is a bit too long specially if your flying with family!
