Get through security quickly; check the latest regulations TSA
Air  Travel To Oaxaca  (OAX) Flights to Oaxaca
Mexico uses the same procedures for security as you find in the USA.  Before your flight to Oaxaca check TSA guidelines.     The TSA web site has the latest on security procedures in the US. This could prevent your loss of carry-on items that need special handling or packaging.  Security will confiscate items in the US and Mexico.  
In  Mexico,  security will often hand inspect luggage randomly.  When you arrive in Oaxaca they will xray all luggage looking for taxable items.

For Oaxaca flights,  you can save money by shopping well ahead of your trip so that you can design a trip with realistic layover times.
It is a good strategy to be realistic about your ability to make connections. Leave enough time   between
connections to go through customs and immigration.
Mexico city airport might  require
two hours to get through immigration.  Having a cushion of three hours at this point of entry on an international flight is not unreasonable. This leaves room for a delayed flight or masses of arrivals trying to get through immigration, customs, and security.

Airlines have been reporting  20-30% delay rates in the last few years.  If you leave ample time to make a connection, at least one and a half to two and a half hours between planes domestically  and three hours internationally you will be safe in case the plane is late leaving or arriving.

Find a suitable flight and then call the airline and see if they have a better deal. Book on-line and then call the airline and secure a seat assignment to a seat as far forward as possible.        If you establish frequent flier accounts with your usual airlines you can get an assigned seat on airlines that hold back assigning seats.  
Getting a seat assignment as far forward will provide a quieter and more comfortable ride.  When it comes time to leave the airplane, you will be among the first off and have more time to make your connecting flight.
Try to get a seat assignment as early as possible.
