Unbelievable MEX-MIA Same Fare As MEX-BRU, MEX-OSL

Wed Feb 20, 2013 8:25 pm

Hi Falks!

I live in MEX, Im planning a trip to MIA for some days around 22/03/2013 to 01/04/2013 and I am Shocked about the fares (nothing really fair) I found, a trip MEX-MIA for those dates is around $850 Dlls ( for a 2:40h flight) are you kidding me? almost or even the same as a MEX-OSL, MEX-BRU or even MEX-SYD (more than 12h flights) for the exactly same dates. Any suggestion? I really need to travel on those dates!
Thanks! cheers!

Try Toluca if you don't mind the extra commute - Spirit seems to have some good fares available that weekend.

Also check some nearby cities, Maybe FLL, MCO, and so on. Fares are based on yield management and can vary widely. Also check other dates. Might be cheaper to find a fare to a nearby ciry and rent a car to MIA.

Try http://us.bestfares.amadeus.net/ at different times of the day and/or week and check "add nearby airports". You'll probably end up on some unpleasant connection to FLL if you do decide to go, but it'll save you good money - even though the price is still going to be bat crazy.

Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.

Unfortunately it's all about supply and demand...

Also, ~800$ to Sydney? I'd take that immediately!

This isn't always an option, you know. Maybe rvA340 wants to relax, not to drive.

If you have some flexibility in your dates a day or two in either direction there are fares much lower than $800 MEX-MIA-MEX. For example AA has a $479 fare (including taxes/fees) outbound March 20 and returning April 3, with a connection at DFW in both directions. For nonstop flights on those dates AA has a $606 fare. UA has a $552 fare via IAH in both directions, outbound March 20 and returning either April 2 or 3.
