The airport is probably the most expensive place to buy an airline ticket, Consumer 10's Kurt Ludlow reported on Monday.
No discounts are usually available at airports. Purchasing tickets online is the better option, Ludlow reported.
With airfares fluctuating like the stock market, the best time to buy an airline ticket would be Tuesdays at 3 p.m.

According to FareCompare.com, airlines generally launch sales on Monday night. It usually takes until Tuesday afternoon for other airlines to match the fares.
Airlines do not guarantee their schedules, so they are not required by law to compensate travelers if their flights are delayed or canceled.
Each airline has its own policy about what it will do for customers. Some may offer meals or vouchers or hotel rooms. They don't have to, and they never pay money for delayed or canceled flights, Ludlow reported.
Another rumor that Ludlow debunked was about hotel safety. The key cards used by many hotels are supposed to increase security because they provide easy access to rooms and they are programmable.
The only items of information that are stored on a room key card are the room number, the number of nights the key is active and the number of keys that the guest has.
No credit card or other personal information is kept on the cards, Ludlow reported.
