flights from Cali

Recommended Posts

WOW! I am really getting concerned planning a June 09 wedding in cabo, with the price of flights. 530$ round trip from LA? Crazy when I can go next week for 230!

Any suggestions for my guests? Wait to book? Pick a different month? What have others paid this June?

Use a travel agent? Most guests will be flying out of LAX!

Thanks you all this site is so helpful!!

American Airlines sometimes has good rates going from LAX to Cabo. Most of my family is flying out of there, and their tickets ranged from 338-400. If you have more than 10 ppl going, call them to get 10% off ticketed price.

Just to give you an idea - My friend booked way back in April for $338. I've booked my brother's tickets two weeks ago for $353. My sister booked two months ago on cheaptickets (american) for $383.

I checked habitually on all days especially on Tues & Weds. I would go onto cheap tickets, if there rates were low, then I would go direct to American and check the price, apply my 10% and it worked out for me. I get married on Dec. 5th.

I'm in the same dilemma. Most of my family is coming from LAX or SNA. I've been using farecompare.com and farecast.com to get e-mail alerts but I feel like I'm looking too soon since my wedding isn't until a year from now.

We are having this issue for April as well. Our family has used points to book to eliminate this, though tell them to book early as our LAX to SJD and SAN to SJD flights have already oversold on points tickets and Alaska has a few left but they went form 30kwhen we all booked last month to 60k now. I read on the news today that they are predicting flights to drop in early 2009, but there is no way to tell. You just have to cross your fingers that the people you really want to be there can use points or can afford it. We have one group of people in LA considering driving as it is a gorgeous drive! Good Luck

Has anyone looked into Mexicana or AeroMexico. I'm getting married next November so pricing on flights are not available at this time but I have been searching other dates just to get an idea. I noticed that there are not that many direct flights for LAX. I think AA had flights from LA over 6 hours. Is anyone else flying from LAX?

Have you checked American Airlines? They have CHEAP direct flights right now. Make sure when you go to their website, on the left hand side, click on "netsavvers & special offers", then "fare sale". As of this morning, the price (my wedding is in Dec.) is $299.13!! And my 10% discount makes it $279.13!! I wish I had not booked my entire family, but oh well! Hopefully you can get a good rate. PM if you want to use the 10% code. Good luck!

I'm getting married in May 2009 and have the same concerns about flight prices. Most are coming from Chicago. Those with miles and some family members have chosen to book now, but most are waiting as I think prices should go down. It seems to me the days of "the earlier you buy, the cheaper the ticket," are gone. I also regularly check on Tuesdays and Wednesday and for the past month the fares from LA and Chicago to Cabo have remained the same.

Have you tried Volaris? - Volaris

 

they fly from Tijuana but if your guests can make the 2 hour drive down from LA to the border sometimes it is worth it. We got a flight for New Years for $275 rountrip. Flights from LAX and San Diego on all the other airlines were $700 plus.

 

Also they have a shuttle from San Diego that brings you to the Tijuana airport so you don't have to park your car in TJ.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
