How do you get cheap flights?

Well this article is meant to give you the insight:

"But the short answer is 49 days before your departure for domestic flights, while the sweet spot for international flights is 81 days."

High, of course, is when the kids are out of school and the weather is great, or summer, while low is during the depths of winter, when fewer people are traveling, with the exception of the holidays."

"Start early. Once you've got your plans in mind, even if you haven't decided if you can actually afford it, start tracking prices. That will give you a feel for the market conditions."
