Mexico Flight - Odds of Cancellation

We are supposed to leave for Cabo on Saturday, with a return the following Saturday. I know we're in crystal ball territory here, but is a return flight cancellation something to be concerned with 9 days out? I'd imagine there will be a lot of spring breakers needing to return, but I can't help but to be concerned.

18.95678%, but that last digit may be off by 1.

Seriously, not even worth speculating about as nobody including WN has a clue yet.

Just keep your eye on things. If for some reason Mexico becomes an issue, be prepared to hop on a plane immediately or stick it out in Mexico. You also, need to consider the possibility of quarantine on return if it comes to pass that the Cabo area goes "hot".

An option would be to fly to Tijuana and cross the border to San Diego on foot. But you'd have to get to Tijuana on a different airline.

That may or may not affect the quarantine risk. Also, a mighty expensive trip with two new air tickets.

The unforeseen is a given in Mexico. Bring cash.

Rent a yacht with hot strippers.

Wait for lighter winds around Cabo Falso before departing. Set your sails close-hauled on a starboard tack, set the windvane on autopilot, sit back and read a book.

Also, as a former long time Mexico resident, I am fairly certain that information regarding infection rates, especially for Mexican tourist destinations, will be grossly under-reported, if at all... and, if so, that the outbreak will be "under control" with few or no threats to tourists.

Or bridge. As of yesterday, the CBX remains open.
