What are Last Minute Flights?

Last minute flights are flights that are reserved near the departure date and time of the flight. Flights that are last minute are brought in the days or weeks leading up to the time of departure but can also be brought on the very same day of the flights. Passengers who book last minute flights tend to be those who need to travel urgently. Last minute flights tend to be cheaper than buying flights months before the flight departure date, as airlines need to fill the empty seats on the plane however, this isn't always guaranteed.
