A: I need to fly to New York. B: When are you going? A: During the Christmas holidays. B: You'd better buy your ticket now. A: You must be kidding. B: No, I'm not. It's March. Time is running out. Seats are selling out right now. A: I thought I would wait until October. B: I'll bet this is the first time you've ever flown during Christmas. A: You're right. B: Well, listen to me. You need to buy a ticket now. A: But maybe prices will be cheaper in October. B: Cheaper prices won't do you any good if there are no seats.
