How do I get the best price on my ticket from CHI to MSY?

Hotwire has been in the game a long time, so we know a couple ways to get the best deal on your flight to New Orleans. You'll make spending less look so very good with a few simple steps.

What is the best day of the week to book a flight?

It pays to be a weekday warrior. Tuesday and Wednesday typically have the best rates. Next in line are Thursday and, surprisingly, Saturday. Most people like to fly back on Sunday so you can save by leaving a day earlier.

Why are flights cheaper if you stay over the weekend?

Staying the weekend at your destination, like New Orleans, usually means lower airfare since most people fly during this time. Of course, we don't want to twist your rubber arm or anything.

What are shoulder seasons?

Off-peak and shoulder seasons are when most people aren't going to certain locations. So when it is chilly, most people head off to warmer places like the Caribbean, Mexico, Hawaii, etc., just like the birds (they had it figured out). But during the summer, you'll find that Europe is where it's at. If you want to save and avoid the crowds, travel when everyone else isn't.

Jump on that great rate

Airline carriers change their rates seemingly by the minute. If a price you like pops up, then get it! Unsurprisingly, you're not the only person longing for an amazing price on a flight from Chicago to New Orleans. You could lose your opportunity to dial in the time and the flight you wanted.

How else can I save on my flight from Chicago to New Orleans?

We think the Hotwire Hot Rate is one of the best deals out there, although we may be slightly biased. It's one of our ways to help get you a great deal on your ticket to New Orleans from Chicago. After your purchase, you'll get the time and name of the airline, but with a little risk you can get huge savings.
