My wife booked the tickets the other night, we only got the idea to come back to Aruba a few days earlier. United still has a direct on Saturdays and we live close to IAH Bush airport so we got that flight, December 10th to 17th. Worked out to $441 per ticket. We are using miles from our Mileage Plus accounts to move up to first class. Having the direct flight is so much better than flying from Houston to Newark and having to get a hotel for the night and then flying to Aruba.
