    Hi everyone, I’m planning a trip to Mexico and Chicago in January/February time next year. I’ve been trying to look up flights and both BA and AA’s websites aren’t giving any options. BA won’t show any tickets to PVR from London whatsoever, and AA’s will show simple return tickets to PVR with various stopovers, but not on the multi-city option.

    I’ve seen some options through Kayak, but I can’t get it to do WT+ on the transatlantic legs and Y on the US-PVR legs. My husband and I are both quite big guys and so squished into long-haul economy is GRIM, especially on a 10-Y 777!

    Is it purely because the return leg is over 6 months away?

    AA’s non-stop flights from ORD are often seasonal and changed by AA, which is probably why BA don’t want to ticket with them.
    ORD-DFW-PVR on AA after a stop over at ORD is relatively straight forward.

    BTW if you are searching at AA.com, don’t forget to select ‘All carriers’ from the airline drop down menu to get more options, doing wider searches can through up more results.

    Assuming these are cash tickets I picked random dates for next January in the BA app and got several results. Including LHR-DFW-PVR.

    But those are with long connections not overnight stopovers.

    Did the same on the website using multi city and it was giving me options.

    Overnight stopovers are fine- especially in Chicago, as we have many friends there we can stay with. Most departures from the US to Puerto Vallarta seem to be in the morning (presumably for scheduling reasons- there won’t be that many connecting onto them and point of sale skews HEAVILY to the US for those flights!)

    Yes it would be a cash ticket.

    I’m now getting BA tickets showing LHR-XXX-PVR-XXX-LHR, but it’s just struggling with the multi-city aspect of it! Wonder if it’s a typical BA IT glitch…

    I might just book two separate tickets – one LHR-ORD-LHR, and one ORD-PVR-ORD. Last time I went to PVR I flew via ORD, and had a stopoff there on the way back (my husband is from Chicago), and it was all booked through AA.com. I think BA were offering tickets, just that AA was cheaper.
