Flying from the Southwest? If you're looking for flights from airports in the Southwest this holiday season, wait to book until after August 16. According to KAYAK, this is historically when they've seen median airfare start to decrease.

Flying to Europe? If it's always been a dream of yours to visit Europe (opens in new tab)'s Christmas markets you still have plenty of time to find amazing deals for flights across the pond. While airfares start to decline from now until the end of September and mid-October, if you wait to book your flights until October 10, you're likely to find the best deals about six to eight weeks ahead of your travel dates, according to KAYAK.

Methodology: KAYAK pulled internal data based on all coach, roundtrip flights from the U.S. with search dates between January 1 and November 17, 2016 for travel dates of November 18, 2016 to January 3, 2017.

INRIX predicts drivers will encounter the longest travel delays before the holiday weekend, particularly during the afternoons on Thursday, May 26 and Friday, May 27. Drivers in major U.S. metros could experience double the travel times compared to a normal trip.

Whether you're heading to the tropical reaches of Mesoamerica, the icy swathes of Canada to the north, the romantic cobblestone towns of Europe, the curious cityscapes of Asia in the east, or the alluring backcountry of wild Africa, this breakdown of the most important points to remember when booking international flights from the United States is a must read. It's been put together using Hopper's unique research methodology, which collates millions of pieces of data related to flights departing out of American airports from right across the internet, to identify things like the cheapest departure dates, booking times, return days and plenty, plenty more. So read on if you'd like to learn the cheapest times to book an international flight.

And when it comes to returns, the midweek continues to reign supreme, with Wednesday flights back into the United States coming in as the cheapest option overall for international travelers. Granted that may not be the best news for package holidaymakers or families looking to make the most of Saturday-to-Saturday changeovers, but it does mean avoiding the biggest crowds at the airport and allows for plenty of creativity when it comes to trip planning.

Booking early is among the most ubiquitous pieces of advice any airline expert can give and budget-conscious travelers would do well to take heed too, because we've discovered than by bagging a seat at least 25 days prior to takeoff, passengers can knock as much as $250 off from the total price of their ticket. That said, it's always worth checking booking stats for your specific route, because prime buying times can vary greatly, with some flights ebbing to a low as much as 100 days before departure!

Granted this one's a bit of a misnomer, because yearly price trends on international flights are typically dictated primarily by the high and low seasons of the destination abroad. However, it's interesting to note that the cheapest international flights for travelers in the United States fall outside of school vacation periods and major national holiday times, with the lowest fares coming in February and March and summertime seat prices swelling to a whopping average of $1,023!

If you're interested in seeing information on the prime booking times, departure dates, travel months and the like for a specific international route, then be sure to head over to Hopper's When to Fly and Buy Reports, which work hard to collate millions of pieces of data related to airfares on flights to a whole host of global destinations each month, to bring would-be fliers the most up-to-date and accurate findings possible.

Just download the new Hopper mobile app (available on iOS and Android) and search for a flight. We'll show you which dates offer the best deals and we'll offer predictions about how that price may change. Want to keep track of that flight? Set up a fare alert. We'll send you notifications when your flight price drops, so you know you're getting the best deal.

What is Golden Week? In Japan, the Golden Week is a series of four national holidays that take place within one week at the end of April to the beginning of May each year. It is often considered a time of vacation for the Japanese people, and many people receive time off from their secular employment on these bank holidays.

Midori no hi, or Green Day, is celebrated on May 4. It honors the environment, as Emperor Showa was a lover of nature, flowers, and plants. At one time, Greenery Day was celebrated on April 29 but was moved to its current date due to an obscure law that requires a day falling between national holidays to be declared a holiday as well.

Tickets will only get more expensive as more people book flights. Airfare is expected to rise $10 each day between Halloween and Thanksgiving, and might climb as high as $450 just before the holiday, according to Hopper. Additionally, those booking last-minute Christmas flights might see prices of $580.

All right. American Airlines made a mistake at the wrong time. The airline accidentally gave too many pilots time off. So as it's preparing for the holiday rush, the airline is scrambling to staff thousands of upcoming flights. As NPR's David Schaper reports, though, American is saying it doesn't expect too many cancellations.

SCHAPER: Captain Dennis Tajer, who serves as spokesman for American's pilots union says it was indeed too good to be true. A glitch in the scheduling system, not caused by computers, gave more pilots time off over the holidays than it should have. So more than 15,000 flights from December 17 through December 31 have no assigned pilot, co-pilot, or both.

We don't recommend sending out the same cover letter for every job; however, you can create a template that allows room for personalization without consuming too much time as you paper the town with applications. Though you'd probably prefer to watch bad movies while you fly, this is a great plane activity (your 2017 morale will thank you for it!).

Here in America, we don't get a ton of time off over the holidays, so we understand if you don't feel like using what little vacation you're allotted to further your future career. Still, if there's a fairly simple skill (e.g., Photoshop) you've been meaning to learn that will improve your chances of getting hired in your desired field, this might be a good time to get it under your belt. Here, a comprehensive list of online classes you can actually afford.

If you're low on inspiration, the holidays are a good time to crack open a few books written by people you admire in your field. General advice can also be helpful for those feeling lost, intimidated or anything but optimistic. Right now, we're liking Leave Your Mark by Aliza Licht, the marketing superstar who launched the DKNY PR Girl Twitter account.

The holidays provide a great opportunity to put together one or two interview ensembles that make you feel confident and look the part of the jobs you seek. Here, the best pieces to wear for an interview, according to Rachel Zoe.

On Wednesday, it was revealed, according to NBC News, that thousands of flights during the holiday period are pilot-less due to a computer error and scheduling glitch which allowed the pilots to take the holidays off. But this doesn't mean that the flight you've had booked with American Airlines for the past few months will be canceled.

After two years of dealing with rising prices, stockouts, and extended delivery times, shoppers are not taking any chances this holiday season. As a result, 38% plan to start their shopping earlier, pulling more of their budget into October and spending an average of $329 vs. $266 in 2021.
