Airfare to MZT

Now that United has dropped Houston service, I notice steep prices from the remaining servicing carriers. We have to come from the east and get severely "burned" . The CalJet service really doesn't help since the Sananotnio connection is not that great for us. Bummer!

The airfares are much higher this year than any other year since we have travelled to Mazatlan. Fuel is cheaper and the fares keeping going up. We feel bad that the prices to Mazatlan this year have been so high we are going to the Playa area in Feb instead of coming to our first love Mazatlan. I watch for deals every year and to tell you the truth none of the travel companies except maybe Orbitz have run any deals this year. We usually are booked to Mazatlan by Sept-Oct and this year we found zero great deals. We usually go to Mazatlan two or three years in a row then try someplace else and decide we like Mazatlan the best so it is good to experience different places I guess. We usually have a great time no matter where we go. I feel your pain though!!!!!

You are right Sodak.

We found a good deal on Orbitz the end of August and are glad we jumped on it.

The prices have gone crazy since then

I don't know about connections from the east but the price for a round-trip ticket has remained reasonable from Reno Nevada. It's about $550 round trip on US Air and you leave Reno at six in the morning and arrive in Mazatlan before noon. I still miss flying Alaska but they only seem to have Saturday flights to Mazatlan from L.A. The plane on US Air to Mazatlan is a small Canadaair jet but I'll happily give up some of the comfort for the convenience.

You would have to spend a night in Phoenix Bob but all in all $650 doesn't seem to bad. It says Airbus319 from Phoenix to Mazatlan which is a big upgrade from that sardoine can Canadaair jet. I hope that's the case when I book my May trip.

Thanks for your work, Tony.

We aren't having problems getting to MZT from MSP during winter season.There are 5 non-stops per week from MSP. I believe those having problems are from points further east that used to connect through Houston.

We did catch a special on Orbitz in August for a package air and hotel. The air part was $519. round trip. Glad I took it as that is the best I have seen all season.

Delta has four flights per week, Sun Country has one.

These are seasonal and the season is short.

We found no flights out of Houston this year. We are using American out of Dallas. Small plane to Maz. It is all very sad I think. Evidently not enough people are going. VERY SAD.

"There are 5 non-stops per week from MSP."

You lucky dog! LOL I'd have to drive at least 200 miles to find a non-stop.
