American Airlines has “Basic Economy” round-trip flights from Dallas (DFW) to Cancun (CUN) for $191-$195 and Cozumel (CZM) for $311, NONSTOP. One-ways are also available for half that. Cancun flights July to December. Cozumel flights in July and August. Weekend departures available. No Christmas/NYE.

Note: Cancun has been in this price range since last year. It’s now common to see it at this price and we will be sending out fewer price notifications for Cancun unless it dips further.

Note: “Basic Economy” fares do not include a free carry-on bag. Only a small personal item, like a Jansport City Scout backpack is free. Checked bags cost +$25 each-way. Seats are randomly assigned prior to boarding. If you have an AAdvantage credit-card you can avoid bag fees and get priority boarding.

Note: I’m currently using the Jansport Right Pack as my “personal item” when I fly in “basic economy”. Which is slightly more than expensive than the Jansport City Scout because its fabric is Cordura instead of Polyester. Both have the same dimensions which are: 18″ x 13″ x 8.5″. There is half-an-inch of extra depth than what is officially allowed by AA, but it has never been a problem for me. The bag has a large main compartment, which makes it ideal for stuffing as much as you can into the limited amount of space.

Note: OTAs such as Travelocity and Priceline allow free cancellation without penalty within 24-hours after you purchase. As deals sell-out or expire quickly, this policy will allow you to “lock-in” the cheap fare while you sort out a plan. Just keep in mind that after 24-hours you will not be able to cancel without the regular penalty.
