So Eldest BIL Edward finally has a ticket.

One way on American via Miami was $470CDN , so about 320US. All figured in it was $20 more than Spirit without the drive to Detroit-city.

He also had to get his Nica Passport to avoid the exit penalty for entering on his Canadian Passport that 14 years ago..

No check bag included tough - but he does not need to pay for the Cary bag.
