Why Always Connection In The Usa?

Mon Oct 24, 2011 8:21 pm

I flew 3 to 5 times a year from cancun, mexico to europe and always when i start to search for flights, air france, iberia, british airways etcc they always only give you flights options with stops in the us, this is so bad because I really do not like stops in the usa because of imigration and time you need to change terminal etc... so af and ba have directly flights from cancun and also from mexico why they do not give you otions to fly with them via mexico o directly from cancun why they web pages always give you options via usa, i do not understand that

Probably because the "more direct" flights have only higher booking classes available and therefore are more expensive, at least on the date you selected. I'm quite sure that AF has the same price via CDG or via ATL and CDG, if you get the same booking class, but since you have much more flights from ATL to CDG they will usually have much more cheaper booking classes available than on the AF-flight out of MEX. Same goes with LH (and star alliance).

I just searched some random dates on my usual booking engine and found the BA nonstop option within 30 seconds. It cost about 20% more, as I expected it would.

Orbitz, Travelocity, CheapTickets, and www.britishairways.com

Keep in mind the BA nonstop is not daily from CUN.
