If you are planning to travel in the sky in the next year, wait until you hit the "sweet spot" for airline prices. If you book too far in advance, you will pay full price. If you are too close to the travel date, you will pay a lot because they know you don't have a choice. According to an expert on this Rachael Ray episode, if you book a flight exactly 3-1/2 months before your departure date, statistics show that is when you'll get the lowest price. So go ahead and schedule your "booking" date as well as your travel date!
