It looks as though American Airlines is doing everything they can to discourage us from flying their airline from Boston to Aruba. The non-stop on Fridays is gone. The San Juan option uses a little prop plane on the second leg that we won't go on. The New York option uses a small plane to NYC, no thanks. Miami is the only viable option, and likely gets you in at 10:00 PM. Oh, by the way...the price for that option is up. Looks like we, for the first time, will have to fly someone else. Bye-bye American....can we purchase a toaster with our remaining frequent flyer miles?
looks like it is going to be a little difficult to get a "cheap" flight outta any airline to Aruba. I have been looking every day for the chance that I would be able to find airfare under $1,000-the reality of it is probably slim to none. Pretty frustrating....can blame the cost of fuel I am sure as one....we'll get there in January though even if we have to paddle LOL!!!
Happy airline hunting, if I find something I will let everyone know...
unfortunatly "we" cannot do much...well really the only thing we can do is not fly them...then as sales drop maybe a last ditch effort with lower fares. airlines know we'll pay though to get to our destinations so we're damned if we do and damned if we don't so to speak..LOL
AA is also screwing passagers flying from Newark. On my flight to Aruba on April 4th, I departed at 8 am and didn't get into Aruba until 10 pm. A 7 hour layover in San Juan. What a pain. Coming home last week atleast I only had a 2 hour layover in Miami but I had to depart Aruba at 7:30 am leaving for the airport at 5:30 am.
