Why is airfare to Cancun so outrageous? Could a TA help?

Recommended Posts

Some of my guests and I were originally looking for cheaper options to fly. We were considering driving to Texas because flights were sig cheaper from the charters...RYAN air was one of them and there is one leaving from Austin I think....VivaAerobus (175.00 per person) Also my TA said that she believes that tickets will be this high for a while and may even go up.sad.gif

I just thought of a few more to check: vayama.com and Aeromexico. ***I just checked on vayama and put in the dates of Nov 14 - 21 and the price is $388 from Houston to Cancun on Aeromexico. This includes all taxes and fees.

Our guests booked ryan air out of houston & aeromexico. It was still around $400. We went through a TA that uses funjet.

 

Last summer there were $200 flights on suncountry. Sadly, it looks like those days are over sad.gif Since we started watching prices in August, they have only gone up. We booked in september & it hasn't been lower since then.

 

Ryan air has really strict luggage rules (up to 44 lbs total) so it might not be a good airline for you to fly. It's fine for guests who won't have a lot of luggage, but if you are taking OOT bags or any decorations it would be hard.

I had no idea Ryan Air flew in the States! I've flown them in Ireland, but not here! I'll have to check it out! Thanks!

Airfare is totally ridiculous right now and you ladies are right about the discrepancy with airfare to Cancun vs. Cabo.

 

FI, my daughter and I are making a "plan the wedding" trip to the Riviera Maya in June and got tix from LAX to Cancun (direct flight) for $414 - which actually isn't too bad compared to what we paid before. But we got really lucky finding that one on hotwire.

 

And then, we just booked tix for a family vacation in Cabo in July and those tix from LAX to SJD (direct flight) were $458. WTF? A direct flight to Cabo is only 2 hours from L.A. In the past we've paid $300 roundtrip.

 

The plane fare price hike, is really killing the budget. I hope it gets better or my wedding in 2009 may have a poor turnout. smile27.gif

the increase in price definitly decreased my turnout. But, I wanted less than 30 anyway, so for me it worked out. I was really worried about all the people showing up that planned on it. Most of the guests that are going booked before prices got so high.

yep, the very same Ryan Air. I didn't know they flew here either until we saw the flights on funjet.com. But right before mike's parents booked, there were no more ryan air flights to pick from & they were replaced by aeromexico.

Now with seeing all the airlines canceling flights like frontier & ATA, I think we would have stuck with airlines like continental if possible. I'm just waiting for these 2 months to go by hoping no ones flight gets canceled.

    • Hi all, My younger sister is 5 months carrying. She is suffering from hearing loss now. She was perfectly alright before she got conceived. But once she got conceived her hearing ability started getting reduced. Is it quite common now? What would be the reason for hearing loss during the pregnancy period? After scanning the doctor said that the baby is underweight. Since she is suffering from severe vomiting, she is not eating any food. Hence she seems to be very weak. The doctor has prescribed a lot of medicines for her to stay healthy and to deliver a healthy baby. In the midst of all these she is also undergoing the treatment under a hearing aid audiologist in order to improve her hearing ability. Will she completely regain her hearing ability?
