    Cheap air tickets in China are avabialle by waiting until a few days before your travel date, then buying the tickets in the town where you're departing from.  Tickets are usually avabialle at steep discounts, 30%, 40%, even 50% off.  Ask around at different agencies because they don't all offer the same discounts.  It is very difficult for Internet outlets to match the prices of storefront sales agents so I always buy my tickets in person.NOTE: Do NOT TRY THIS  near the start and end of holiday periods, the start and end of the school year, and other popular travel dates.  The worst days are probably around Oct 1, Oct 7, May 1, May 7, and two weeks on either side of Chinese New Year.   If you want to travel during those times, buy your ticket way in advance and be prepared to pay full price.During non-peak seasons, it would be very rare for all seats to be sold out on all flights on the day you want to travel.  Major routes like Beijing-Shanghai have dozens of flights daily.  There is almost always something.During summer holiday times, popular vacation spots like Lhasa are frequently booked solid but often empty seats will appear the day of the flight because agents have book-blocked groups of seats and end up with smaller groups than they expected, hence last minute cancellations.
