We prefer to fly non-stop whenever we can. Nothing will mess up a vacation like a missed connection or luggage lost in transit. From SFO to PVR we have been pretty much stuck with Alaska to get the job done, but this trip we lucked out.
We have been “Frequenta” fliers with Mexicana for years, when we fly to other parts of Mexico and love the airline. We have flown into a dozen cities and never had a bad experience. When I purchased our tickets in March, Mexicana was offering n/s flights and the fares were several hundred dollars less than the competition. R/T $299.00 all in.
Remember how it used to be when you flew? It is still that way on Mexicana if you book your flight with them and not a code share partner. Arrive at the gate and you can still check 2 bags, free! Once on board the stews come by with your free headphones to listen to the audio channels or to watch the free movie. Your lunch arrives, airline food, but decent and of course free! By the way, beer and mixed drinks (Bacardi, Cazadores) are also free. I hope they don’t hear how crappy US airlines treat all of us while charging us an arm and a leg. They might figure out that they don’t need to provide “real” service.
By the way, if you bought tickets as early as we did Mexicana has made some changes to their reservation system and you may have a different confirmation number. Easy to straighten out on the phone.
