Help Me Decide On A Flight!

Thu Nov 06, 2003 5:00 am

OK, I'm doing some flying this Thanksgiving: San Antonio-Houston (I live in Houston, but I'm flying from SAT round-trip because my...never mind)

Choice 1:
SAT-IAH (CO 752/M80)
-I am a OnePass member (will get 1000 miles + 1000 miles for booking online)
-Can check out new terminal E and widebodies at terminal D (IAH)
-$86 roundtrip

Choice 2:
SAT-HOU (WN 737/737)
-Can check out the new terminal (HOU)
-$92 roundtrip

So, which one? Thanks for your input

I would choose number one. Not only because it is cheaper and you get the miles, but because it is an Maddog MD80!!  Big thumbs up

I have also never been on Continental but I have heard great stuff about them.

Definitely choice one:
- save 6$  Big grin
- get 2000 FF miles
- fly more interesting selection of aircraft
- CO in my opinion offers better service than WN
- check widebodies at Ter. D

I really don't see where you need our advice. It's your time and money.

Nevertheless:
It's a short flight, so I don't see how flying either airline is going to be a momentous experience. I'd choose the airport in Houston that is closest to where I need to go. There's plenty of flights on either of those routes each day, so choosing based on departure time is probably not a concern.

No doubt: Choice No. 1

Proud,

That's because I like having people decide things for me, so in case I have a crappy 45-minute flight, I can blame it all on you guys!  Laugh out loud

The red zone is for the immediate loading and unloading of passengers only, there is no stopping in the white zone...(Ai

Thanks for all of your help...I found another fare on CO for $81, that pretty much sealed the deal.
