Cramped seats. I'm 6'2". I know that is fairly tall, but not unusually tall. When the seat in front of you reclines it is pretty uncomfortable.

Cheap Flights to Pensacola

At the western tip of the Florida panhandle, just a few miles from the Alabama border, lies the pretty seaside town of Pensacola. Here there are all the beaches and bars you would expect from a Florida resort, and the party crowds during Spring Break, but this is Florida with a pinch of Deep South hospitality on top.

When to Book Flights to Pensacola

Pensacola has year-round sunshine so there is never a bad time to visit, but it does not offer the winter warmth of the resorts further south. Winters are short, but relatively cold by Floridan standards, with temperatures dropping to the low 40s.

Peak season begins with Spring Break season in March and April, and visitors flock to the city over the summer, when temperatures rise to 90°F, so plan well in advance if you want to grab Cheap Flights to Pensacola at these times.

Hurricane season runs from June to November and there is a chance of sudden bursts of rain all year round.

Fall, when the weather is cooler and the threat of storms has receded, can be a good time to visit with cheap air fares available.
