    Good afternoon folks,

    Not sure if this is even the right section but any advise on how to purchase a last minute (hopefully cheap ticket) from NYC area to MIA? Should I do a multi-city stop in order to make it cheaper? If so what cities should I stop in? What are other some "techniques" one can use to decrease the cost? I keep hearing AA has 10% discount coupons floating around but I have yet to ever find or use one...

    Thanks!

    Jetblue has some (restrictive) 20% off fares today too. Or you can get creative and fly into PBI/FLL and drive down.

    You can always hope over to ITA and do a search for your dates and see what you can adjust to make things cheaper (departure/return/airport/carrier/whatever).

    What do you define as "last minute" though? :)

    As in this weekend!

    I heard many years ago that if you waited until the last minute and approached the counter at the airport you could acquire some ridiculous low fares, is this true or complete nonsense?

    It was true when you heard it, i.e. many years ago. :)
    Now airlines are not likely to keep flights with many unsold seats at the last minute.
