First is always plan in advance and see all the websites where they are giving discounts on airline tickets.
Many of the airlines provide huge discount if you book the tickets 3 months to 12 months in advance specially if you are planning for a foreign trip.

I always advise you to travel with fewer luggage. Now airlines are charging for everything you have extra. Golden rule is one bag one person.
There are no luggage charges for hand bags so its a good to shift heavy stuffs like laptop in the hand bag.
