That's good news. Anyone ever stay at La Blanc Spa and Resort? It's one of the nicest places I've ever stayed worldwide. It's a little expensive but worth it. No kids allowed, food is 5 star. All floors come with a butler who packs and unpacks your luggage or what ever else you want him to do. I could go on for hours, this place is incredible.

A lot
Possible overnights will be at the Hotel Coral Essex...

The NERDS are back, and they're BAD!!!

We stay at a very nice hotel in CUN, and I would highly suggest that layover, regardless of where you stay. There is a bus service that is very easy throughout the strip that takes you to the hot spots.


Bye Bye--General Lee

We will probably stay (if we over night) at a 30 year old Holiday Inn by the airport. Which will translate to, mo' money for our hotel pimp, I mean broker.

What a bunch of BS! Given the financial health of Airtran and the industry why on earth would they want to "Drive" fares down????? That is insanity.

What a great idea... *sigh"

I'm certain that was said for the benefit of the flying public but it certainly doesn't help the general financial condition of the industry.

The only thing lower than our fares is our pilot's opinion of management.
