$60 More? No Brainer.

This fall, I’m going on a Canada/New England cruise for the first time.  It is a nine day cruise in September and leaves from Port Liberty, NJ.  I hear that it is much better to fly into Newark Airport than either of the New York airports.  The only problem is that I cannot get a flight from Midway.  So….

This afternoon, I got online and checked the United web site.  A round trip ticket from O’Hare for their premium economy (extra leg room) was $536.  I decided, what the heck, and went over to American Airlines web site.  I purchased a round trip ticket from them instead for $596.  I know that it is $60 more than United; however, instead of premium economy, I got tickets for first class.  That includes premium beverages and two free checked in bags.

As I said in the header of tonight’s blog post, the decision was absolutely a no brainer!  Now, I just have to wait for September to get here.  🙂
