Best program to redeem for cancun flights?

I have miles all across the board (except not much of delta) and even a suthwest companion pass. Need 4 tickets to cancun, what's the best program to try to redeem from?

Where are you coming from? If you're in DFW you'd do well to use BA to fly on AA - non-stop and only 15K rt in Y.

The best program is the one that has award availability. Check your dates, and that should narrow down your choices considerably.

This. +1 Availability first. Then think about the miles you want to use.

The best mileage price on any major airline will be OAK/SJC-PHX-CUN on US with Avios at 14,500 each way. You may want to look into Southwest and Frontier if there is nothing else available on your dates.

When I/we go (from Omaha) 4500 BA miles to Dallas, 7500 miles to Cancun.

you might want to look at flying Spirit. They can have some pretty cheap flights to CUN. Perhaps use Avios to get to Dallas as the previous poster said and then buy a cheap ticket.
