When is the best time to book a Thanksgiving flight?

According to Skyscanner flight trends, the best time to book a thanksgiving flight is eleven weeks out during the week of September 4th for a potential savings of up to 4% and a ticket of approximately $300. However, you can still find amazingly cheap flights up until the week of Thanksgiving, when Airlines tend to look to sell out their holiday inventory.
