Looking to go pretty much anywhere (but prefer Western states) 12/25-12/30. What are my chances of finding a good fare for these dates?

Usually Christmas is a good travel day and perhaps one can find a lower fare for that day but the return date of 12/30 will be very difficult to find a low fare for.

Change the return to 31 or the day after and you may do well.

I am flying on 25th (afternoon) and and returning 1st. (as I usually do)

Last yr I took bumps on 3 flights on those dates and reaped $2000 in travel vouchers. I still got to do my trip with minor delays and FREE hotels at the airports where I took the bumps.

The travel credits funded a lot of my 2017 travel.

I have found that up until approx January 5th, one can have problems finding a cheap return flight.

Yes, same with award flights.. We are going to Europe over Xmas on awards.. We booked them literally 330ish days out when they opened.. They had nothing returning until the 7th.
