Haven't used US Air, have used Continental and Southwest out of MHT. It's a great little airport. We have stayed at the HOliday Inn Express, below, with a park-and-fly deal. (There are two Holiday Inns in Manchester, this one has better rates in our experience.) We got good service there, the shuttle drivers in particular have always been great.

However, I think this time I'll be booking Springhill Suites, per Ted's post above. Haven't stayed at this one, but others in the chain, and the rate I saw was terrific.

Have fun! :-)

We plan to travel down the day before and are wondering about any reasonably priced hotel/ park and fly rates.
Excited about the holidays with our favourite mouse!
I used usairways from MHT last month. It was fine ... not a problem. Would fly them again (note: I got my continental onepass miles flying usairways ... they have a reciprocal agreement)

I overnighted at the aforementioned springhill suites. Price of $126 US everything in. Booked this again for February.

mbb, excellent find. 82 days! If I'm not mistaken that will be with canjet. I like canjet alot!

I'm seeing a few deals that show up and then disappear (they sell out).

Although not a deal in price as much as convenience and time saving, I saw a one way from YHZ to MCO for $324 with taxes and fees in for Feb 12th ... the first day of Halifax's 2 week school break. This was a direct flight with aircanada ... no bag fees. Again not a great price, but to leave on the first day of the break and get there direct is excellent. I found this for a teacher friend of mine, who couldn't leave until the 12th, but had tickets for an event on the 13th ...

Good job, Minniemommy.

Curious now, how does one book Canjet? A quick google got me only people who talked about canjet and didn't actually seem to book it...

Canjet is chartered through transatholidays.ca ... so check their website. That is the only way to book canjet, unless you book an entire plane with them

US Airways has $59.00 flights from MHT to Orlando or Tampa on Sat Feb 12th and return flights on Feb 19th from Tampa to MHT for $59.00. Fly into one airport and return from another. It is $89.00 +tax from MCO on the return.

I just priced out some flights for a co-worker.

Westjet
Moncton to Orlando
$800 return
Feb 9 -17

I thought that was pretty decent - especially since the return flight was direct.

The price for MOncton to MCO in feb is for how many people. As I was checking the West Jet site and they still have their sale on and I came up with half of what you quoted.

I am looking at a late August trip to WDW and US.

I actually would prefer to fly out of New England so that I can drop my dogs at my mother-in-law's in NB and save about $600-$750 in kennel costs.

I have never done this before, where will I get the best prices out of, Portland, Manchester, somewhere else? Which airline?

Thx for the help

I am curious to know what has come up for the cheapest flights from Moncton to MCO. Hoping the flights are direct or short lay over. (2 kids) Wondering which is cheapest, fly out of here or Bangor. (October if this helps)

I can almost guarantee you that flights will be cheaper from Maine (Portland or Bangor). However, actual cost is only 1 of my considerations. Driving to Maine will add 1 day on either end of my vacation for driving. Gas money, food, park and fly or hotel charges, etc. and the difference starts to get reduced. Also to consider is the baggage fees most US carriers will charge.

The convenience factor of flying from Moncton or Halifax can't be overlooked if only a difference of a few hundred dollars.

The flights from Moncton to Orlando (Feb 9-17) as I mentioned in an earlier post, was $800 for 2 people - while flying from Portland was less than $400. I have not seen any flights less than $400 each (taxes-in) for flights from Moncton - and I've generally been looking since 2007. Halifax might offer a slight reduction, but not a considerable difference to consider the 6 hour round trip.
