Something you west coasters might consider, if Sol
cancels their flights from Dallas, it might seem the
long way around, but it also may be more cost
effective and you could possibly avoid Taca. Fly to
Miami and take American. Of course you would need to
go through San Pedro, or take the direct flight on
Taca from Miami. Right now, for October, San Fran to
Miami is $370 RT and Miami to Roatan, less than $400.
San Fran to New Orleans, $326, then N.O. to Rtb.
Flights from Miami are traditionally much cheaper than
Dallas or Houston. I just routed a friend from Rtb to
Portland, Oregon for less than $600 total and he did
not have to go via El Salvador which is the route Taca
usually uses to get to the west coast, which always
means getting into San Fran around midnight and
waiting until the early morning to get out of there.
This way, he flew direct to Miami on Sunday, arrived
at 1:40 PM, left Miami at 3:50 PM and arrived in
Portand at 8:30 PM the same day, instead of +1 day
later. Just a thought.
Sol did have a major flaw in it's schedule in the fact
that their flights to Miami did not get there until
after 11 PM and who wants to be stuck in Miami at that
time. I guess that I am one of the few people that
has never had a problem with Taca, even though I have
flown them litterally dozens of times in the 4 years
that I have been in Honduras. Usually get the best
fares too. I also had a friend that had a horror
story about Sol. Sorry Sol...........
