I don't think it should be a problem. I mean, they're going on vacation!!
And here's hoping they get a bigger plane too.

People will definitely drive a few hours to catch a different flight (our guests have to drive 3 hrs to the nearest airport)........people tend to put in a little extra effort when they get to attend a wedding at a vacation resort.
And you never know, more seats could open on your flight.
Good luck and try to think positive!

And to make you feel a bit better, our TA also was very shocked that the original flight booked up so early. It was filled up in April and wasn't departing until November!! That's 7 months!! However, our TA was told directly by Sunquest that they often hold back on adding an extra flight because they don't want to have too many open seats. I guess they slowly release more seats based on demand. She was told that since the original flight filled up so early, there was a very good chance that they would be adding another flight...and they did (luckily)! And it sounds like maybe this will happen for you too?? I really hope so because even though your guests will be willing to drive to other cities for another flight, it would be soooo much better if you could all leave Toronto together!!

I will just keep my fingers crossed for a bigger plane:)

Just a heads up, that in the summer they usually only have one flight, then 2 from Nov - April. I find it really hard to beleive that its booked already, I would press your TA to find out more info, unless there is a very large group going, there is no way its booked this far in advance.
Thought i would do some investigating, lol, sunquest website is confirming seats on your plane Id call your agent asap, ask them again, just how many seats there are!!
Flights on Mondays from Toronto are currently stopping over in Mazaltan, you may want to find out if yours will be too, so you cna let your guests know, it adds an hour to the flight, you do not get off the plane, they call it a "touchdown". I just got that added news not long ago.... love sunquest...

My Gfriend in Newfoundland has a three hour drive to the airport too.... Her and hubby will make the overnight trip and fly into Toronto to connect ans fly to Cancun with our group.... Those that want to make it happen "will"

Hopefully that is the case with your charter flight, and some will free up shortly.
