I'm looking to head to HAV through CUN, YYZ, MEX, (and the like) and I'm surprised how much it is costing. The trip to HAV itself is pricing out >$600 for almost all seasons I've looked at (Not inclusive of the USA-Gateway segment)
And ITA doesn't seem to work with HAV
For what I can pay to go to HAV in Y, I can head to IST, AMS, CDG and the like. (Especially temping with all the DEQM promos)
Anyway, any particular reason HAV is so expensive?

Lack of competition maybe?
FWIW you can fly Virgin Atlantic from LGW (London Gatwick)-HAV RT in November for GBP 632.20 all in. It's 35-40% more than flying a similar distance to destinations in the US but less than what IB charges for LHR-MAD-HAV which is the route I took some years ago.
Unfortunately HAV seems like an expensive destination to get to.
iah.. that's Houston I think.. travelling from US is going to be more expensive than travelling from Canada.. Lots of Canadians go down, and lots of seat sales going on year round for us Canucks.. From the US, its going to be expensive anyway you cut it.
