Whats with the crappy return flight times????

Looking to book out of Cancun in Feb and all the return flights leave before 10am, you loose an entire day of vacation, wtf????? Last year we had more choices leaving after 4pm.

I almost forgot my point....

The USA3000 flights are nice at least because they leave ORD at 7:00am, which gets you to your hotel (in Cancun) by 12:00pm.

The returns lately? Yep, 11:40 am, which means you will be leaving your hotel before 9:00 am.

So...... Add another day, it seems to help.

Without the use of the Palace Resorts' travel assistance, last Sunday I happened upon what I consider a decent RT price especially since it involved a different departure and return airport out of the NorthEast. RT from 10/4 (a Saturday) with a return on 10/21 (weekday) for $398, not bad! And, and arrival into Cun by 12:30 PM and a departure at 1:43 PM, IMO, almost perfect.

It may take some checking but it can be done and with the help of the Site from "bridgenut" on the previous page, it's much easier that before.

The itasoftware site is a good one and I have been looking at it for some time. Like all, it has its limitations. Of course, it does not list airfare only prices for charter and , in the US, it doesnt list Southwest and several discount carriers. That can be big--I was checking a Louisville to LA flight for my brother and Southwest offered a 50 dollar cheaper RT than any on ita.

Its a good tool but best to use as only one of your options. It is getting to be more of a challange to find a low fare.

Just traveled to Cancun in early September and got decent flight times arriving and departing.

Arrived into Cancun around 11:00 am on a USAirways non-stop flight out of Charlotte.

Departed Cancun at 2:30 pm on a USAirways non-stop flight to Philadelphia.

Those were decent flight times in my opinion.

Now, being picked up at the hotel for the transfer to the airport at 9:45 am through Olympus Tours is a different story!
