A few weeks ago my sister called me up and asked "I found a flight to Minneapolis for Christmas for around $360 (including taxes and fees); is that a good price and should I go ahead and book it now?" I told her yes, that sounded like a pretty good price for MSP
for that time of year, and I don't think fares for around Christmas time are likely to get cheaper, so she should go ahead and book it.
At the time she only mentioned that she had found a non-stop flight on NW
for that price, but the next time we talked she mentioned that she also had the option of flying RDU
for the same price. She had apparently already made up her mind to go with the one on NW
because a) it's non-stop, b) they're part of SkyTeam and that's where her FF
miles are, and c) she didn't really know anything about Midwest.
I told her that based what I know about YX
's service I would have advised her to at least think about going with them, and I of course told her about the cookies. Had I been in her situation I probably would have picked YX
So, kind of inspired by Qantas787's similar thread, I'm curious which option a.netters would have picked given the above factors.
