Cedar Rapids Airport

Hey guys! Okay, I'm flying from L.A. to Cedar Rapids, Iowa over Thanksgiving (to see family). Then the Sat. after Thanksgiving, I'm going to fly to New York City for a few days to visit friends, then fly home to L.A. around Dec. 3rd. After numerous internet searches, I've found that NWA offers the best deal - around $573 - for this crazy trip. BUT I have to change planes TWICE! (connecting through Minneapolis and THEN Detroit) to fly from Cedar Rapids to NYC!! Any other ideas of carriers that can do this route? United wanted around $600 for the same itinerary; AA wanted $800!! What other carriers fly into Cedar Rapids? I'm willing to take more than one carrier if it makes it cheaper/more convienant. Any suggestions would help, thanks!

It is AA.com, but it involves a discount code which I can't post here. If you want to give me your e-mail address I will show you how to get this fare and the above flights.

WOW, prices change by the minute. Now the AA itinerary is also coming in at $488 after the 10% discount code. You will have to decide if you want to fly in/out of Newark on NW or LGA/JFK on AA. If you decide on AA, you will have to get the discount code. Let me know.

Unfortunately, Fodors does not have that option. so you would have to post it right here and I will e-mail you. Make sure to put a space somewhere in the address so any autiomatic address readers won't get your address, for example : if your address is [email protected] post it like this 123_info.com and I will know.
