There is a nonstop our of FNT to MCO for a $148 (Web Only price) at 1:35 pm landing 4:15. The return is Sept. 26 at 7:00 pm and landing back at Flint at 9:40 for the same Web only price

There is a 9:30 am flight on Sat 21 that is NONSTOP fro $148 and coming home on Sept 27 at 7:00 pm that is NONSTOP for the same price
But, as you note, those are flights originating in Flint, not Detroit. For those dates in September, there are no non-stop flights from DTW. Those stop in the middle of August and there aren't any non-stop from MCO to DTW that I can find.

What are your travel dates? We are planning on booking SW nonstop from Flint to MCO for our November trip when flights are released. They show one nonstop per day right now.

We too fly out of DTW. Airfare over the last 6 months have gone insane. We are flying into Tampa and having a minivan rental. We saved $812 for a party of 7 to do this vs MCO. Yes I know TPA is 1.5 hours away. But its better than paying the higher cost. Plus we have a better rental rate with TPA vs MCO. I would look into this option. We snagged 233/person direct flights vs 349/person to mco.

Reasons we're going to fly out of flint as well. Plus we're bringing a 2.5 year old so getting through flint is much less daunting than Detroit. Not loving the one flight per day we're seeing to and from flint though. I like more options.

Detroit and Flint are two different airports! The OP asked about DTW-MCO nonstop flights.

We had to do one -way tickets from FNT to MCO on SouthWest Sept 22 and then on return floght MCO to FNT ,we did Delta one -ways on the 27 of Sept . It was the cheapest way for non-stops. Maybe one-ways would work for you. Good luck

DTW prices are driving me INSANE right now, at least to MCO.

Delta is showing up as $478 for my flight! That is insane. I am not flying until November, but WOW! I have looked into flint and GR too. I should probably look at Lansing too, but Yeesh!

Correct. But someone (maybe even the OP) asked about direct flights out of Flint.

Out of Flint, though, not Detroit. SW just rolled that flight into their system; prior to April 15 Airtran ran the same route.

There are pros and cons to going out of Flint. It is a smaller airport, which is nice, and security is usually quicker than at DTW's main terminal. The flight times now look pretty good. But with only one flight per day there's no fallback option if one is cancelled or overbooked, and for us there's the additional cost of parking because we have family that will drop off/pick up at DTW because they're in the area but would have to drive ourselves when leaving from Bishop. And Flint is virtually always more expensive, usually by $80-100 r/t.

And if you fly Spirit, consider yourself warned. I would stay home first LOL!
