Seems he has like 600k to 800k to pay for ticket.
Your travel date is in about 30days, and you are dilly daddling on buying tickets.

Airline ticket prices increase every hour as the flight gets nearer. Even local flight.

Might be a first time traveller. People buy tickets 3-4months ahead of travel date. You get the tickets so cheap. Yummy bargain

it's same day ticket on e-visa... if you're traveling to Turkey next week you can get it as low as N260k but if you're traveling on e-visa then you must fly Turkish Airline which is N354,000.

Please don't. If you don't have any reason for visiting just don't bother. Try the Canadian express.

That age old logic, appears to be gradually going away..or mine is a special case.
Have been watching ticket prices for over 5 wks now, and it actually got cheapest about 10days to go.

It is a not a special case.

Your cheapest ticket 10 days to go will have some hidden restrictions, you better don't have any reason to deviate, alter or over pack luggage

It is not an age old logic.

It's a COMMERCIAL system by airlines to maximize profits on passenger tickets sales.

well, i challenge/test everything, i dont just swallow it. cos some1 said so
try booking lagos to newyork or houston, check next weeks prices...versus 5months price.
then come back, lets talk.
you need to be aware that certain factors come into play in ticket pricing...such as holiday season, weather..winter/summer etc

the cheaper rates for booking ahead is more pronounced for local flights ....my 2 cents

Most times this is caused by change of equipment from 777 to A380

From my experience, almost all plane will be fill from Europe to U.S and vice vicersa and the price always will almost remain the same except for weather conditions and holiday period, most issue is on the flight from Africa to these European or Middle East hub, filling the plane is tricky which leads to the difference in price, e.g Emirates : Lagos to Washington 14th February to 24th Feb is N332,000 and same route on May 14th to May 24th is N345,000. From these examples we can see that February 14th flight on Emirates is not filling up fast while the May 14th flight is performing normally for that date.
If you're tourist, I believe your decision should not be based on flight alone but hotel, Flight to New York is generally cheap but hotel is expensive, you won't get a standard room for $75 a night in a 3 star hotel in New York, calculating that amount over 10 days is like $800 the only advantage you will get from flying to New York is if you have free accommodation whereas you can get $450 for 10 days in another State.

True @the bolded. How many people really wan go holiday for inside that yeye cold? But don't try that rubbish for summer tickets from late May into June, till after summer, ticket prices will mostly only be climbing. Also avoid doing that for Christmas/New Year period, buy such ticket from between September and deep into November, that's even for those of us traveling from Naija to that side, but for those coming, na die!

Someone cancelled. Most cheap tickets are sold weeks before the flight. It's usually a special deal between airlines and travel agencies. I wouldn't advise you to do that again. You got very lucky

no one cancelled, this period is simply not a travel season , and then school is on session as well.
it would be suicidal to try this in summer grin grin grin. i went to major cheap ticket sites and set up price based alerts..so i get alerted when any shift occurs in price grin,

i understand some of the dynamics, hence if you read my post carefully, you will see i factored in most of the what ifs.
am even tempted to cancel the BA flight i got ytday...to buy the shorter delta ticket grin grin. still gat a few hours b4 my free 24hr cancellation window expires
