Flights USA

The 2 of us are planning a trip to the USA in May 2014. One tour is from New York to Miami and the other is from San Francisco to LA or reverse. Should I do the east or west first taking in to account International arrival and departure from and to South Africa.

Which airlines would give me cheaper rates with internal flights in the US.

May i know i we would be allowed to fly from Miami to Cuba or not? If so what is the procedure and the cost?

"Should I do the east or west first taking in to account International arrival and departure from and to South Africa. " - No real difference, it comes down to whether you want longer flights on arrival or departure, personally I'd do East Coast first.

"Which airlines would give me cheaper rates with internal flights in the US." - Impossible to answer but I'd probably do an open jaw SA - NY, LAX to SA and use Southwest for the internal flights.

Southwest is sometimes but not always cheaper. No way to know without checking. Also check Jet Blue and the legacy carriers delta, united, American, and usair. There are some small carriers on specific routes but those are the main ones.

It is complicated to fly from the USA to Cuba!

I'd not really plan to do that on this trip unless perhaps you first visit another country like Mexico and then go from there.

I believe the only wY to fly legally from Miami to Cuba is on a charter. Do not think there are regularly scheduled commercial flights from theUS

I would do the East coast first because the earlier you go in May the less hot it is. The West coast is more dry heat so it isn't going to matter as much.
