Have any of you been through an aggravating situation where the airfare has dropped a good bit after you bought the ticket? I was impatient and bought my air ticket for travel to Africa in August which is a good 8 months away. 2 weeks after I bought the ticket the fare dropped by $300 that's the cost of being impatient

I have heard 4 months out is all you need to wait to book for international non peak fares.

This is why once I book an airfare I stop looking at the airfare prices.

Exactly... Nothing to be gained by continuing to look (unless you have a refundable fare) except maybe an Ulcer.
