Where are the Winter Sales?

Q. When can I expect to see sale fares for December this year? We usually go to Italy, but would be happy to go to Morocco or somewhere else just as great. I keep checking various airlines-- they have usually posted sale fares by now, but so far I've seen no sales.

A. The airlines time the release of these sales to maximize profit.  We imagine they're waiting to see what happens with the price of fuel, which really has them (most of them, anyway) in crisis mode at the moment. Stay tuned to AFWD though, and we'll let you know when they start springing up.
