I'm planning a trip to Mazatlan that I'm both more excited and more nervous about the closer I get to actually booking a ticket. I found what I think is a good price, even counting the carry-on or checked baggage fees (It's only $5 more to check a bag than it is to bring a carry-on). It's on an airline that I have barely heard of, which worries me a little, but it's a direct flight, which no one else does any more. I'll probably book the ticket tomorrow or Tuesday. 

This edition of "Kathy's Exciting Life" brought to you by the letters Q and E, and by the number 12.


That is exciting, Kathy!  What is the name of the airline?  I know Frontier used to go to Mazatlan at least seasonally but that was 10 years ago.  

Double check the weight allowed for your checked bag.  I know Spirit allows only 40 lbs (as compared to most airlines 50 lbs) unless you purchase an upgraded ticket.  
I no longer long for the old view!

It's Sun Country Airlines. The reason I've heard about it was because at least 20 years ago, I had to pick up a friend at the airport, and she was taking Sun Country, and I had the hardest time figuring out where to go at the airport. I guess the good news is that the airline has survived this long, so they must be doing something right.
