Look out for Dallas. I've had problems returning through Dallas more times than I can remember. Thats why I'm returning through ORD this time.
Look into SXM - CLT -SEA and drive back to Portland or take a short plane ride over and back. There is a nonstop Direct from SEA to CLT with a connect to SXM. We are taking that one to SXM this May.

Scuba,

Am I missing something here?

Linda isn't talking about her usual SXM trip. She's asking about a trip in JANUARY through CHICAGO to FLL. I don't particularly like flying through DFW either but I'd rather that than CHICAGO in any of the cold weather months. Another part of the equation for Chicago might also be that you fly in May, don't you? That would be a huge difference, no?

--------------------
Respectfully,

pat

Right. I was just giving her another option to avoid both ORD and Dallas. Neither one is to reliable in January.

Went to Kansas a few winters ago from JFK, booked a Dallas connection to avoid Chicago...... flight was changed to Chicago, snowstorm in Dallas, go figure!

Been through ORD many times going and returning from SXM. Never had a problem. In fact we are returning from SXM through ORD this coming June.




Then you are an extremely lucky person.

I personally love going through DFW and, crossing my fingers, have had no problems so far. We'll see what January brings. Also, you generally assume my miles are with American, which they are not. They are with Alaska.

That would make it easy to go through SEA to CLT as Alaska has many flights to and from Portland to SEA and AA honors Alaska miles. Was only a suggestion. Our friends used their Alaska Miles on that same route last year.

depends on the airline Assuming United it is one of the main Hubs and you should be ok. Always better to go through a warm weather connection like Houston. Problem is ORD is usually cheaper in January

The issue with that approach is that I have to fly Horizon from PDX to SEA, and I really, really dislike flying Horizon.
