How do you get the best deal on a flight from MSY to QLA?

We've been doing this for years, so we know a few ways to find the best rate on your flight to Los Angeles. You'll make spending less look so very good 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 vacay by a day and increase your savings.
  • Monday through Thursday—If you're flying internationally, deals are often available when departing these days.

Can staying the weekend get me a cheaper ticket?

If you stay through the weekend, generally that return ticket to MSY can be cheaper since you'll be leaving earlier in the week. All those business travelers have less elastic itineraries, so that means more savings for you. Good thing to tell your boss if you have a business trip -- wink-wink.

Why travel during the off-peak season?

Shoulder or off-peak seasons are when most vacationers aren't traveling to certain locations. So when it is chilly, most people head to warmer places like the Caribbean, Mexico, Hawaii, etc., just like the birds (they had it figured out). But in the summer months, you'll find that Europe is really popular. You can usually save on your flight when you avoid flying during the peak seasons.

If the price is right, pick it!

You're not the only one longing for a stellar price on a flight from New Orleans to Los Angeles. You may miss out on your opportunity to dial in the time and the flight you wanted.
