I'm DFW, only 1 Dallas airport I've ever come into for RCon.


Actually there are a few people coming in LF this year. Also I think Southwest only goes there as well.

Yeah southwest only goes to love field. It isn't a big deal, it was a good 50$ cheaper per person to use south west instead of anyone else.

ok, I think I'm going to fly into love field at 1:55 pm on wednesday.  I am going to rent a car if anyone can fit into it with me and all my stuff... although now that I check prices of them... sigh...


Yeah prices for rentals are maddening. Melons Clan lands in Love Field at 1:05pm. o_o

It sounds like Haldir's ride is now full, but I am expecting to arrive at DFW around 11:40AM on Wednesday, if anybody would like to split a ride.


I am getting in at 1107 and am currently planning on using Super Shuttle. I have not booked it yet, so I might be willing to split.



Last year, FireElemental and I took a taxi from DFW to a rental place at the mall, and got our car there. Was a lot cheaper. Airport prices were THAT inflated...


Not sure we're doing that this year; prices are behaving a lot differently.


For Wed-Mon, Enterprise at DFW is over $400. A nearby one (3 miles) is half that. That's crazy if you ask me.

I've heard that rental cars get cheaper when it is close to the day you want to rent one. They want to get as much as possible for the cars, but a car sitting on the lot is useless to them, so they drop their prices in an effort to get all the cars off the lot.


Last year, we paid $192 to rent from Wednesday to Monday through Avis at the Vista Ridge Mall. We paid in advance to get a bit of a discount. We reserved it on 4/22 which was Tuesday the week of the con. Avis allows you to drop the car off at a different location for free, so we dropped it off at the airport. Whole thing went smoothly although we got charged a fee for something (I forget what) at the airport.

I'm getting into DFW at 2:45pm on Wednesday, and heading home on Monday at 12:40pm. I'll probably end up just doing the Super Shuttle, but if anyone wants to share a ride (carpooling or taxi), I'd be happy to split costs. :)
