I am getting ready to purchase tickets between Dulles and Spain but have noticed that sales to Spain via Iberia tend to happen in the spring. I am traveling Sept 2 to Spain and returning Oct 14. What is your experience? Buy now or wait? Thanks.

It's a crap shoot...with many variables such as:

petro costs, social upheaval, new taxes, etc. Also, the peak season is over with folks back at work or school.

This could be the 'bird in the hand" story.

Right now...considering your trvl dates:

DCA to Mad @ rtn on Iberia (stop in BOS) is $530
IAD to Mad @ rtn on Luft (stop in Munich) is $609

Pretty low.

Arn: it's not the airfares but the TAXES that are outrageous. They are almost as much as the airfare! Takes a $522 ticket up to 900. Actually the prices were lower last week than this so I must have missed a sale somewhere. Will keep trying to better my target. Guess when it goes below current, I'll bite.......

I tried in 09, it went horribly. Gonna try again. Aug/Sept this year
If you buy your tickets on Orbitz.com, if the flight is sold cheaper before you travel... you get a check mailed to you for the difference from your ticket. My son works on the website for Orbitz and assured me this is indeed true. I leave on August 4th for Dublin and plan on leaving Dublin on the 11th for the Camino. I AM truly blessed.
