    Early on, Volaris offered a JFK-Guadalajara-Merida overnight routing. We booked the flight. Later, Volaris changed the departure time by over one hour, and stopped sellling the routing, as inadequate time was left to connect in Guadalajara. Am waiting for Volaris to make its promised full refund of the OW ticket, though uneasy that the Volaris phone rep could not provide me with any confirmation number of our conversation.

    However, one can book RT overnight service from JFK to Merida on Interjet. I have found Interjet to offer reliable and comfortable service. Good discounts are available for early purchases.

      I should note the Volaris routing is Merida-Mexico-JFK. Going northbound, I found the Mexico City airport to be an unpleasant experience — a very, very long walk from the domestic arrival area to the INM stand in the international area, and then a lesser walk back to the Volaris international departure area. The moving walks were off late at night.
