Not happy with US Airways

Why, oh why, do they have to be so darn expensive? Their rates from SMF to SJD have never been this high. I watched and watched the sites. They started high months ago and kept going higher. We ended up booking with Alaska/American. Still higher then we are used to paying but at least their 1st bag is free unlike USeLess Airways.

Now that I have vented I am happy to say I will be in Cabo the end of Jan.! Woohoo!

There will be a Food Drive and some colony visits that I need to organize. I will post the dates in a week or two. Hope to feed 80 families this trip. Aiming for the food drive around the 19th or 20th of Feb.. I think our daughter is coming down that week and that way she can interpret for us. Oh, no...now I have to find her a plane ticket......

Hope you all had a Merry Christmas. We had lots of sickies around here. Went from one family member to the next. Ate too much and exercised to little. Oh, the Joys of the Holidays....

Daughter is still sick but at least none of us were during Christmas. We either had it before or after.

Thanks. You know I will have a great Cabo vacation.

Is there any other kind? :-)

Hi Tooley,

Sorry to hear about the sickies - we had them too :-( Am very interested in your food drive though. We will be in Cabo during that time and would love to love to contribute. Looking forward to seeing information!

Just curious. I'm traveling with Alaska and my 1st bag is not free, am I looking wrong? Maybe because I'm from Canada. I'll go back and look again, that would be nice if it was.

AS does NOT give you the first bag free, at least here in the states. It is $20 from here and $20.50 on the return..........your carryon is your 'free' bag.

I am so glad you at least got tickets, Lyndi-be sure to put the res. on Yapta.com in case the fare drops-you can get an e-cert credit! Guess I should start checking for May!

billsgal, I have the best of intentions to relax more this trip. I have a few people making sure that happens. :-)

badney, Would love to meet up with you and have you go out with us. Will post soon on dates.

On the baggage charge what I saw was that the 1st bag is free but the 2nd is $40.. Now it was booked through one of the travel sites but was linked to American Airlines and so that is where the reservation is. What American showed was the 1st bag free and the 2nd is $40.. Still beats USAir which is $25. for 1st and $35 for 2nd AND they charged us both ways in May! American said it was $40. RT...so, I hope that is right. Maybe you understand how it works, Kay. We are on Alaska for 3 flights and then American for 1 and the ticket are issued from American. I am confused. Are they partners?

AA does give you the first bag free, and yes, AA and AS are partners :) don't know if AS honors the AA free first bag though........

Lyndie, PM me your mailing address so I don't have to dig through all my old posts. Stilling doing an economic feasibility study on the Feb trip. I really thought you could speak Spanish. I'm trying but I'm just to dumb to pick it up and retain it. See Ya
