America West is okay. We sell them, and they are as good/bad as any other carrier. They have some good packages as well. Your travel agent can give you some good advice!

Some friends of mine just travelled to PVR from Edmonton with America West (included a short stop in LA). They said America West were very good.

The only problem with travelling with America West is the flight times and the stopovers. We also looked at flying with them, but because we had our 6 year old with us, and knowing the tolerance level of children, we decided to go with a direct charter flight....with a package (from Canada) it works out cheaper than booking a flight and a hotel seperately...but to each their own. Good airline, We just did not like the connections! (check out jubilee travel.ca they have some great packages going to PV right now!! - talk to Lori!!) Tell her Colleen sent you!!

We just booked out trip through expedia and with America West. Apr 23-May 7. I heard that they are fine, price was certainly cheap but yes, we do have a stop over. There are 8 of us and price was an issue.

Have traveled twice with America West to Vegas, once from Vancouver and once from SEattle, both direct. Service was good, leg room was average (much better than Skyservice) wouldnt hesitate to travel with them again.

We flew America West (Puerto Vallarta to Vegas return). Once we had to connect in Phoenix. I thought they were fine. Make sure you join their Flight Fund. They have some interesting partners (restaurants, stores) where you can earn airline points towards future flights.

Thank you all so much for your replies, I feel much better. We have a stopover no matter what with all airlines out of vancouver, is there actually one out of seattle that doesn't stop?

I use AmericaWest all the time. Fly to Phoenix on them or to Portland. No trouble, usually ontime or early for us! Hope you have a good trip!

Think it connects in Phoenix...worried after the jetsco fiasco it might be one of those cheapo flights that left us stranded in mexico!

Thanks again everyone.
