Group bookings can be great for the team leader who is just beginning to plan
a journey and does not yet know how many passengers will be traveling. While
each airline has its own set of rules for groups, it is often possible to hold space
330 days prior to the return date of your proposed trip with a small deposit. Final
payment would not be due until anywhere from 50-65 days prior to departure.
