Predicting when airline tickets are the cheapest isn’t, surely, an exact science, is it? One cannot possibly say, with any level of specificity — when considering the style of Jurassic Park’s chaos theory level of changing that must play into the setting of such prices — when exactly tickets are the cheapest without finding themselves suddenly standing in front of a pair of hungry Velociraptors wanting to eat one’s alive as a result of such a fearless act. Actually, there is a simple answer to when airline tickets are cheapest. The answer: Tuesday, 3 p.m., EST (Eastern Standard Time), says the chief executive of FareCompare, not afraid of dinosaurs, Rick Seaney. “That’s when the maximum number of cheapest seats are in the marketplace,” he is being quoted as saying in the WSJ (The Wall Street Journal) shortly before a pair of Pterodactyls wanting revenge, are taking his weak body into a Universal Studios’ outside area for making scenes. We are never going to forget you Mr. Seaney.
