Calling The Scheduling Gurus! Need Help

Wed Oct 18, 2006 10:23 am

If flights within these parameters exist, one of you will find it.

I need to get from SNA (Orange County) to MBJ (Montego Bay, Jamaica) on April 29, 2007. Return flight will be on May 5th.

I want to make the eastbound flight WITHOUT getting stuck on a red eye, a layover longer than 4 hours, more than one connection, or the whole trip taking more than 12 hours.

SNA would be my first choice. My second would be ONT. Third choice LAX.

Airline unimportant, but Continental preferred. Avoid United if at all possible.

Can anyone help?

My recommendation...

Try a travel agent

It should definitely be possible.

I guess I could try a travel agent. But I know that a lot of you guys live and breathe and drool over challenges like this. So I figured I'd give you a shot.

Sorry... on most flights, you will have to go on a red-eye. A large majority of the airlines only offer 1-2 flights a day to MBJ, and they leave in the morning. You wouldn't be able to leave California in the morning and connect to any of these flights.

the outgoing is hard but I'm working on it, give me some time

I also know that you don't want any overnight flts, but if you're willing to give that up you can fly nonstop from LAX plus countless 1 stop options from all three airports.

I know u said no red eyes, but looking at all the non stop deatination out of SNA, there are no viable connections, even with one stops...ORD/MSP/CVG/ATL/DFW/IAH all flights leave early-mid morning..sorry but the best is what I have posted above, that I could find...

U could actually fly SNA-LAX to connect, but, sorry that is operated by UAX/Skywest

He also said preferrable not out of LAX, but so far I haven't seen anything out of SNA....except for the connecting flight on UAX SNA-LAX...
