When do you book your flight out of Santiago?

Travel home after the Camino de Santiago

The question was:

Does anyone have experience with waiting to book your outward journey from Santiago until you’ve arrived (or perhaps when you’re close enough to the end that you can tell when you’ll be getting there)? I’m keen to have a general plan, but would harbour hopes of walking a bit quicker….if we arrived in Santiago with four or five days to spare I’d love to zip back to Paris and spend the time there before returning home. If we had pre-booked tickets it would cost to change them. But will it cost more to be buying at the last minute? And if so, how much more? And what would the chances of getting three seats on the same flight be?
