    This week Southwest also announced that Aruba will survive the transition from Airtran to their network. This means that they will likely add a couple more destinations over the next few years. Several smaller Airtran stations in the US will lose service.

    PHL to Aruba-- over 710pp

    but we can take the Amtrak to BWI and take Air train with no stops for 433 pp total.

    a $300+ saving pp.
    if it were me, i would go air tran

    how inconvenient is it to go to BWI?
    what about a park/sleep/fly thing?
    might more comfortable getting to BWI the day before and spending the night and being able to park there.
