Calendar Match Interviews; Most likely when?

Hi,
I was thinking of buying airplane ticket now cause if I buy them when I know the IW's date, they will be super expensive... But in which period will I most likely be able to schedule interviews?..

Default Oct.-Feb

The interviews start from Oct. till the end of Jan. I believe its difficult to predict now how many, where the interview will be, so it won't be easy to purchase tickets now.
Also it depends on the program that offer u an interview, if that program offer pre match, its better to schedule the interview ASAP. If no pre match offer dont be in hurry
