Other options include signing up for newsletters from flight deal aggregators like Scott’s Cheap Fights and Thrifty Travels. For international flights, try Momondo which yields results from various booking websites which sometimes offer cheaper fares than directly from the airlines.
2. Once You’ve Booked a Flight – Do This!
For international flights, some airlines will allow you to choose your seats even if it’s in economy class. While others will only allow seat selection after check-in.
