I flew back from Acapulco some years ago (on Princess) and had a change of aircraft in Los Angeles. Other UK bound passengers went via other US gateways. A direct flight shouldn't take 17 hours so I guess you will be stopping off somewhere en route. It's not really a major hub for international flights so unless you go on a P&O chartered flight a stop off is almost certain. Even then, they tend to use smaller aircraft so a refuel stop is quite likely, at which point you get off and stretch your legs. Have a look on to get an idea of who flies where and approx flight times. Hope you aren't going loco by the time you get to Acapulco!! I'm sure you will have a great time.

Refer to my responce to a question posted by Mr Keith Barley on March 26th 2008. I think this will answer your question. With regards to the flight time, it does take about seventeen hours to get there I know because we have done it. Trouble is, the planes have a refuelling stop on the way in Cuba or Dominican Republic, before continuing to Acapulco.

We have just returned from a panama canal cruise just over a week ago. we also flew to acapulco which took 13 hours plus a one hour stop over at dominican republic. it didnt feel like thirteen hours as most of the time they are coming round with meals or complimentery drinks. there is also plenty to watch on the tv and if you are lucky you may get a couple of hours sleep. but we were suprised how fast it went. unfortunatly you dont get a lot of leg room on the flight we were on which was thomas cook. dont let it worry you too much as i'm sure you will have a lovely holida.

Do you need protection?

By Barbara Hopley

You may think ‘What is she on about?’Well let me explain….I have friends, family & even some customers who book their own holidays online then something goes wrong and what do they do – come to me for advice or help.I will help anyone but as a Travel Agent this is the worst thing that can happen as firstly, they didn’t book with me, secondly, they then want my help to sort out whatever issue there is.I can give so many examples of this, so here are a few:-Boo...

Its that time of the year, Christmas has gone and its time to start planning for next year. We often host everyone at our house being that Chris is a chef its kind of expected.

This Is What True Love Looks Like!

By Amy Ginder

Happy Valentines day! I hope you are feeling the love today. I thought that I would share a romantic love story which dates back to 1912. This was the year that the Titanic tragically sank, leaving only 705 survivors.On the 10th April 2012 the Titanic sailed from Southampton, there were 2,200 passengers onboard many looking to live a new life in America. We have all watched the film Titanic right? I am not talking about Jack and Rose (boring, the pair of them) I am referring to Ida Straus and...
