When to start booking air and hotels?

My friend Jen and I are going to be heading to Europe from the end of May into the late June in 2010. Obviously airlines and hotels are not this far out as of yet so we are unable to start booking or researching prices for flights. When is a good time frame to start booking? I’ve heard 6months from your trip. Also, what is the furthest out that airlines start to have booking available? Is it 12 months? Hope this made sense, my brain isn’t working this afternoon and I couldn’t word this the most coherently…lol

Thanks! Wink
