Summary
The price for a flight from Amsterdam to Calgary shows a very typical graph. It starts off low and fairly stable until a few weeks before the actual flight, where prices starting to get higher and the differences each other day increases as well.  If you want to be safe, book at least 3 weeks up front. Willing to take the risk and maybe find that ‘gem’ between all the high prices? Try it. It may work out for you. Best days to book the flight: Thursday and Friday.

Summary
Sometimes there is this flight where the price fluctuation just doesn’t make sense. Here I present you a flight from Amsterdam to Jakarta. In stead of a gradually climbing ticket price, this one starts decreasing 2 to 3 weeks before take-off. Looking at the average price per day shows that you have the biggest chance of getting the cheapest ticket in the second half of the week.
Currently I am tracking another flight from Amsterdam to Jakarta. This one is finished around March which will also be the time I will compare these two so keep an eye out.

Summary
Look at this beauty. The flight price from Amsterdam to Cape Town is so stable it is almost terrifying. Definitely going to track this one again later this year to see if it is like this one again so keep an eye out for the next tracker. Until the second week before take-off the prices are incredibly stable, although the prices per period do vary quiet a bit. Best day to book your flight to Cape Town doesn’t matter that much as the prices don’t vary more than a few euros.

Summary
The flight price from Amsterdam to Sydney was an interesting one to analyse. At 20+ weeks the price stays rather stable. After that you see a little rise after which there is a reduction of the ticket price, although this one is far less stable. Best day to book your flight to Australia doesn’t matter that much as the prices don’t vary more than a few euros.

Summary
For a flight to New York you can see that until 14 weeks the price stays fairly stable. After that the price starts climbing week by week to a point where the price for a ticket to New York is almost twice as high. There isn’t really a specific day to book your flight, as prices vary just a few euros.

Summary
A hard one this time. A return flight from Amsterdam to Antananarivo, Madagascar. It is hard to say what the best time is to book a flight to this beautiful country. Look at the graphs and judge yourself. Soon there will be a second flight tracker for this flight to compare the two and see how big the differences are.

Summary
This time, Costa Rica has been looked at. A return flight for the end of October to the end of November. For 6 weeks long, the line stayed steady. The lost 6 weeks before take-off showed a mental fluctuation with differences over hundreds of euros every other day. Best day to book a flight to Costa Rica: Thursday and Sunday.

Summary
A steady one this time. Prices almost keep the same the whole 14 weeks. Three weeks before take-off the prices start to fluctuate more, so if you want to save those 10 euro, then definitely watch for that one. Best day to book a flight to Moscow: all days of the week are fairly the same.

Summary
This was the most interesting one to track. As you see, prices fluctuate massively. It is a hard one to really give a clear summary for. Therefor, I show the results and let you make up the conclusion yourself. I will definitely start a new price tracker for this one, with more than 14 weeks of tracking to see how they match.

Summary
Monday the 7th of July I started tracking the prices for a flight to Barcelona in October. The prices started around € 100 and kept this pace until a week before take-off. Prices started climbing to almost 2 times the lowest price. The day on which you buy a ticket to Barcelona only makes a difference of a few euro.
