$79 Roundtrip from Dallas to Cancun!

Looks like the only days you can depart are June 16 and 18 returning 3 or 4 nights later, but what a deal!

Even if you tack on the $150 or so in taxes not bad that would make it $229.00

Even better. Taxes from MPLS are somewhere between $140 and $150.

It must be nice to live in or near cities with "flight deals." I booked out of BTR 6 weeks ago @ $417 pp.....just for giggles, checked today, the same flight is now $588 pp.....Started searching over 6 months ago, we just don't get those type deals to CUN from the Gulf Coast

Minneapolis is not cheap to fly in and out of. I think we're the 4th most expensive airport in the nation. NorthWorst Airlines holds us hostage.

We fly Sun Country, early flight non-stop gets you in around noon, both ways non-stop in March my taxes were $88 total. Your right NorthWorst, don't even check their fares unless I am desperate. SC has a stop in Dallas on the way to Cun, coming and going but daily down and back non stop, service is great!!

I like Sun Country. I'm glad they are making a strong come back after 911. Can you believe that airline was down to 9 employees just so they could keep their airline charter while they restructured. Would love to see South West come in. I know they have tried for years but North Worst owns all the freakin' gates and wants to charge any competion outrageous rental. We usually fly SC or in the travel business they are known as SY no clue why.

Detroit to Cancun .. May 31

$79.99 return plus taxes through Worryfree Vacations. Not sure what airline they are using. Seems to me it's Champion.

Krazy4Playa - I just booked Sun Country to a trip in June and had to pay $450 rt. What am I doing wrong? I checked every day of the week to see what was cheaper - leaving on a Wednesday was cheaper, but didn't want to waste a couple of extra days for $20. This price is $100 more than it was last summer during June.
