PORTLAND, Ore. ( TheStreet) -- You're already up to your elbows in pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin beers, pop-up costume shops and Candy Corn Oreos. Exactly how much longer do you think you'll have to buy those Thanksgiving or Christmas airline tickets for less than the price of your first car?If you're even entertaining the idea of flying somewhere for Thanksgiving dinner, you're out of time to procrastinate. According to Rick Seaney, analyst and CEO for travel website FareCompare, roughly two months out is the best time to shop for both holiday airfares and desired flight times. As the days pass, it's going to get a lot tougher to find a low-cost fare or a non-redeye flight without arriving or departing on Thanksgiving Day itself.
