Welcome! I'd try a suttle approach at 1st.

Say something like "I'd love the children to spend time with your family during the holidays. Please provide the dates you'd like them to visit & your transportation plans"

Then see what she comes back with. Hopefully she'll provide the dates & tell you they are covering the plane costs. If not then you can say "while I'd love the children to spend time with you, it's just not in my budget this year to pay for their transportation."

I've a firm believer of not disclosing your personal financial situation if you don't have to. Perhaps she just didn't think about it yet.

Good luck!
