Hey, anything that gets you away from that desk is a win in our books. You're on the right page to snatch an awesome deal on your next flight from Los Angeles. Whether you are an airline aficionado or aerial amateur, read on to see how to book a too-good-to-be-true flight.

How do you get the best deal on a flight from Los Angeles to Philadelphia?

We've been doing this for years, which means getting that great deal on a Philadelphia flight is easy-peasy. You can pocket that extra cash for more than just getting from point A to point B with a little know-how.

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

With the right attitude and flexibility, you can fly for less. Below are the cheapest days to fly:

  • Tuesday and Wednesday—You know how most stores are not crowded midweek? Same thing here. Most people opt to depart at the beginning or end of the week.
  • Thursday and Saturday—Get a head start on that Friday crowd. This also works on your return flight. Shorten your holiday by a day and increase your savings.
  • Monday through Thursday—If you're flying internationally, deals are often available when departing these days.

What's the Saturday night stay rule?

If you stay through the weekend, generally that return ticket to QLA can be cheaper since you'll be leaving earlier in the week. All those business travelers have less elastic schedules, so that means more savings for you. Of course, we don't want to twist your rubber arm or anything.

What are shoulder seasons?

There's good reason that many people travel during certain times of the year -- they want to enjoy incredible weather. For example, Europe, Hawaii, and Alaska are big hits in the summer. During spring, New Orleans, Florida, and California open their arms to tourists. Winter is prime for Mexico and the Caribbean because of its warm weather, as well as ski and snowboard destinations like the Colorado Rockies. During fall, Northern California, the Pacific Northwest, and New England draw visitors. If you can plan your trip around these peak seasons, you'll not only save money, but you'll typically avoid the crowds. Win-win in our books.

If the price is right, pick it!

Airlines change their rates seemingly by the minute. If you peep the price you like, then pick it. There are a lot of others that are longing for a great bargain on a flight from Los Angeles to Philadelphia. You may miss out on your opportunity to get the carrier and the times you want.
