I'm booking a flight from DTW to CUN soon. Delta's prices are astronomical right now and I may have to go with NKS, COA/UAL, AAL, USA or TRS.
So, if all things are equal, what would be the best airport/airline combo with a short, yet doable, layover? I'd like to keep it as close to 1 hr as possible but obviously I don't want to miss a connection. I would also pick an early flight out of DTW and I am traveling in May so snow should not be an issue.
DFW on AAL
MIA on AAL
ORD on AAL
IAH on COA/UAL
ORD on COA/UAL
PHL on USA
CLT on USA
FLL on NKS
ATL on TRS
ATL on DAL
I would prefer to avoid ATL but I am thinking that TRS may not be bad because the gates are close together. I have only flew in to IAH once and it was a nightmare. I have not had to make a connection at any of the other airports. The return flight is also an issue with clearing customs and rushing for a connection.
What would you pick and what would be your minimum connection times for both legs?
I think this has been roughly covered before but I didn't see anything recent. Please forgive me if it is a double post.
