YYC or YEG - MEX $114 + OW routing through YVR
Need to do something about the fuel surcharges though!

Base fare is slightly higher, but other fees make it cheaper:

114.00

Taxes, fees, charges and surcharges 333.28

We've hit the era of Ryan Air / Easy Jet where the fees are much much more than the ticket itself... :confused:

Is Mexico City safe? Can you get the nonstop on this?

Braindrain Jan 28, 11 12:26 am

Got my hopes up, but then saw the fuel surcharges just kills the deal.

I'm sure you can get into trouble in Mexico City, just like anywhere, but if you follow standard tourist recommendations found in current guidebooks, it's highly unlikely you will have problems. One of my favorite places to visit, anywhere in the world.

I just meant with regard to the abductions and drug turf wars.

This is no deal unless your heart is set on MEX! Maui can be had for the same or less.

Hopes of what? My T+ flight yow-yyz return this week was 535$ with a 20% off coupon. I believe 550$ isnt to shaby. Sure the surcharges are crazy but then again they are on the domestic side as well!

so funny...... 99 ea, ai $500+...... thats prob the reason why people fly out of the US

IMO not very safe to vacation.. my choice is Big Island and Maui for spring break.

Those things aren't generally happening in Mexico City.

I had a couple GREAT trips to MEX last year thanks to the CM mistake fare (~$260a/i from NYC via PTY in 150% EQM credit class). I suppose I could have gotten in trouble in some of my dining choices, but I did quite well in the end.

Hopes of MR.

I've paid the same price for YVR-NRT r/t.

If you want to go to YVR-MEX, this routing through LAX is not bad, but US via PHX or UA via SFO or CO via IAH are all fine too, and all are cheaper in total.

Each to their own. MEX is perfectly safe in most areas like most cities in Canada and the US. I have never felt unsafe but then I don't stand on the sidewalk with a huge map open either to attract attention.

I took the plunge for my upcoming birthday and booked the $114 YYC-YVR-MEX flights and yes, after a horrendous fuel surcharge and taxes the total was $568.12. :(

I have noticed that those weasels at AC head office don't assign the hefty fuel surcharge to ZIH, SJD, CUN or PVR...just MEX. :mad:

It my SSWU burn coming up.
