What airline do YOU fly with?

I'd love to know what your guys' favorite airlines to fly with are. I personally love JetBlue and British Airways for international fights because of the awesome service and good food! I'd love to know what you guys think of the airlines you have traveled with, feel free to shoot a small comment below and let me know how your experience was with a particular airline.

What are the cheapest days to fly?

The cheapest days to fly are tuesday and wednesday according to Cheapest days to fly. Why you may ask? it's because they are the days least flown on. I bet you were planning on flying on a Friday or a Monday, weren't you? Well those are probably the most expensive days to fly on since everybody wants to fly on those days!
 Those are the most popular days to fly on because many people end their work week on a friday and start it on a Monday, that way if they fly on those two days, they can depart on Friday and return on Monday. It may be easier for your schedule to fly on those days but it definitely won't be easier on your wallet.
 I believe the single cheapest day to fly is on a wednesday because even less people fly on Wednesday than on Tuesday! This is probably because Wednesday is right in the middle of the week and people usually don't like to throw off their schedule midweek to travel. It's just not convenient!
If you plan on saving money flying, for sure try to get a flight scheduled for one of the two cheapest days to fly. If you're desperate, Wednesday is the day to go. Just remember, like I said in my last post, flight prices are constantly changing so any given Wednesday or Tuesday has the possibility to be more expensive than a Friday in instances such as when there's a four day weekend coming up ahead!

What's the cheapest airline?

This question gets asked quiet frequently. The truth is that there really isn't an answer to this question. Flight prices change every single day! One day you may find a ticket that is dirt cheap and if you go check the price again the next day, it may just skyrocket. Plane tickets are like stocks, you can't really predict them. Your best bet for finding the cheapest airline is just check them all. There are plenty of free tools online that allow you to check out flights for multiple airlines at once such as Orbitz or CheapTickets. I recommend you use them both if you want to find the absolute cheapest prices for your tickets. When you do find a dirt cheap price, it's probably a good idea to book your tickets because you just don't know how long that price will stay in effect.
