Award travel reservations can usually be made up to eleven months in advance. Often, but not always, eleven months out has the best availability. Eleven Months Out is my series looking at what you can book today for travel in eleven months.
The award calendar’s for the major airlines are now all open through Christmas:
- American Airlines, December 26
- US Airways, December 29
- Delta, December 30
- United, January 1, 2014
- British Airways, January 2014
(Southwest’s schedule won’t be open through Christmas for several more months.)
This post would be very similar to the one I wrote last month about booking Thanksgiving travel, since mot people traveling over Christmas also want domestic travel. A few quick searches show that there is space now on these airlines around Christmas, but don’t expect that to last. Book now if you see a good miles redemption when you are used to buying expensive last minute tickets.
