American Airlines is offering flights from New York to Cancun for $87 each way, according to discount travel site Travelzoo. Test booking showed that this sale price was available for select dates between Aug. 18 and Dec. 15.
Yes, like the cruises, you also do run the risk of hurricanes, but pair this cheap flight with hotel deals and it is sure to be an offer too good to pass up. Hotels in the resort town are still suffering a loss of business from the swine flu and are slashing rates to lure visitors.
To sweeten this offer, American is offering members of its frequent flier program, AAdvantage, who live in the greater New York area double miles if they register in advance.
