I lost my job on 2/1 and I'm not staying for any more MN winters. My job search is centering around Dallas right now and I'm having a hard time finding cheap airfare RT to DFW. I've checked orbitz and travelocity--they're giving me fares of $554!! My RT fare at the end of May to BZE from Mpls is $520! Any ideas of where else to look for cheap tix? I'm hoping to fly down to DFW for a week to look around/reacquaint myself (I lived down there 10 yrs ago) and maybe take a side trip to you know where. Just think, I'll be halfway there if I can land in Dallas! (I WILL miss my beloved Vikes though...COL). Thanks!

Unfortunately, and oldgators aren't for domestic flights. I need something for Minneapolis to Dallas/Ft Worth. Will try priceline. And thanks rick/cheri! I have 2 friends living in Ft Worth that are helping me try to relocate! Just out of curiousity (and anticipation), what do you usually pay for RT to Belize from DFW?

Hopefully, Rick & Cheri have some great inside scoop 'cuz of their frequency of trek between the two.

Our typical price-scoping experience goes something like this...

Usual off the rack rate = $650ish
Consolidators or small-scale sale with
AA or Continental* = $450ish
Good sales from AA or Continental = $250ish

*If you are flexible, you can usually nab the $450 rate with Continental--also, it *seems* that Continental is the carrier most of the consolidators are using down here. AA seems a little more proud of thier direct flight pricing.

DK much about TACA. Heard prices can be good though reliability is unpredictable.

Hey all, may spouse & I crash the party next time "Barefoot Skinny Does Dallas"? I'm really envious of the Colorado contingency's party planning abilities! ;-)
