Van BC to Zihua

Anyway you travellers can fly through Van BC?
We have been doing it for 5 or 6 years with AeroMexico. Last year cost about $300 CDN. No extra taxes, no baggage fee, no charge for our mutt, no charge for food, no charge for entertainment screen and no charge for booze.
Only drawback is that it is a redeye flight. Leaves around midnight and goes through Mexico City. About a 3 hour wait. You get into Zihua around noon or 1 PM. We leave Van around the end of Oct and take an AirCanada direct back in April. The return flight is a bit pricey, but it gets us home in about 5 and a half hours.
Haven't booked yet so don't know the current prices. I expect that it will be more pricey.

We took that Van-Zihua AeroMexico redeye both ways a couple of years ago. Yes, the beer was free, but we vowed never to do it again: too old for that kind of abuse. Arriving into an absolutely freezing exhaust-fumed DF airport at....what?.....6 am was miserable. On the return trip, we had a 9 hour layover in DF, before our flight left for Vancouver at 1 am. Happily, we used that layover to take the bus into Centro to walk around the zocalo and have a nice meal at Sanborn's.
