  • Depends on how much time you have. 900 miles takes 2 maybe 3 depending on the speed you are going and trafic. Plane ride takes 1 day.

  • research it online to see what kind of deals you can get...., are two of the places that can give combined rates on things.

  • I have looked into flights cant find 2 tickets (round trip) for under 1000. I think driving 900 miles will take me about 13 hours.

  • i usually fly southwest. I jus tlooked earlier today and i caould get tickets to dallas for $95 each person each way so $400 for both of you plus fees. Figure your gas mileage on your any miles/gal do you get? You will just have to do the math and see which is cheaper.

  • You'll have to see what rates you can find on both, add up all expenses, and then compare. It could go either way depending on what deals you find.
