What seems random is actually extremely complex. There is no guaranteed time to get a good fare, unfortunately. Much still has to do with supply/demand and seasonal variations. The best thing to do is look everyday and jump on something that is reasonable. The same principle exists with hotel prices. One hour a room can be $99 and the next $150, then back down for no appreciable reason.
