CHEAPEST AIR FARES
If this is extra important you can plan to arrive a day early so the open-departure-times
options for low fare deals and bidding arrivals and departures does not work against you.
www.Airfarewatchdog.com. They often have great deals that require only a 10 day advance reservation. This varies but often the deal is good for many weeks or months. If you change the reservation they will stick you with a pretty stiff fee. Subscribe and see what you get.
Try the below sources. You may get lucky with a drastically reduced air fare. Then if you can have an open GOING AND RETURNING times try bidding at www.priceline.com Price line lets YOU set YOUR price via BID but there is NO changing ANYTHING once it is booked. They also choose the flight time from the parameters they give you.

After-Class Airline DEPARTURE times are generally not a problem as it is easy to get to an airport at an early morning departure time such as 6:00 am the Monday following the training. Often the late evening DEPARTURE, say Sunday midnight works as the furthest (Nashville) airport choice is 5 hours away and the closest (Asheville) is 30 minutes away.
FIRST get best quote from your favorite airline(s).
THEN go to www.priceline.com and undercut the lowest quote by 50% and see what you get. They may give you what you want, or an optional counter offer.
