    American Airlines from Boston

    I have traveled to Aruba from Boston on American Airlines for the last 8 or 9 years..when we first started traveling with American we always had an early monring non stop flight..over the last couple of years they have pushed the flight further and further back..this year as of recent they have moved the flight back to almost 11 am..now you lose the entire day just traveling..If we are able to go next year I will be using JET BLUE

    i thought our flight was scheduled for a 10 am departure.

    either way, traveling to aruba and traveling home from aruba are always lost days to me.

    ya i just double checked we depart at 10:20
    get into aruba 4:15 aruba time.

    and as rob says the departing flight is late in the day so we get a bit of bonus time.

    Just learned from friends that the non-stop from Boston to Aruba today scheduled to depart at 10:30 was cancelled! Don't know the reason why - at least not yet. They are sending them to NY to get on a flight tomorrow! Wow - that stinks!

    We stopped flying AA a few years ago because they always change their flights. So glad our flights tomorrow are on Jet Blue! Hope to have no problems with them.

    No more AA for me!!!

    Andrea ~ I checked under reservations the other day and found that flight #1013 on Feb11th (the day we leave) has been pushed back to 10:45 am..the day we come home it is around 5:30 pm on flight 1044..every year it gets later and later

    I just checled out July flights and they changed them all. We are no longetr flying direct. We are leaving earlier and going through Miami but get to Aruba earlier. On ehte way home we go through JFK and get in at midnight.....not so concerned for myself but booked with AA for the group discount for the family and for the direct flights for my parents.....it would have been easier on them. Bummer.
    Next Aruba trip in

    big airlines = more choices but also more delays due to their extensive size and network.

    AA and AUA from NE - it doesn't seem like it's a priority for them. no non-stop from jfk -aua during weekdays.

    jb is taking over the route but at a cost - they're increasing the fares every year.
