American is attacking United’s fares to Cancun again with availability for Winter travel!
We found availability from:
- Washington D.C. [WAS]
- San Francisco [SFO]
- Newark [EWR]
- Denver [DEN]
- Cleveland [CLE]
Update 9/1/2015 @ 12:50PM Eastern – price drop! From $240 -> $198. Usually when you have multiple price drops (it was $260ish yesterday, $240 this morning and now $198), it means the fare will be gone soon.
Update 9/1/2015 @ 5:45PM Eastern – fare gone
Sample Travel Date:

How to Search for Availability:

- Departing from: EWR
