I went to aruba this past april and paid 409 round trip for direct from boston to aruba on jet blue.
My wife and I paid $1,090 total taxes included, from Boston to Aruba. We bought the tickets back in May. I checked a couple days ago on their website and the total was $220 cheaper, so I called Jetblue and now I have a $220 credit towards a future flight! Cool!
The discounted fares for our dates were finally available today from Atlanta to Aruba for $615.30. We were willing to pay that much. Our family is now booked for Aruba for June.
Even more fortunate for us, with Delta's new "pay with miles" feature, we were able to use FF miles towards payment of our flights so one ticket was $265 and the other $415 .
The last I checked the only FF tickets available in June were 90,000 miles and we only had about 45000 miles between the 3 of us. So... the miles were put to good use. All told, we paid about $1300 for three tickets. Again, in the overall scheme of things, in this economy, with the price of fuel, imo, a very fair price for fares.
Thank you Rob from the bottom of my heart for your kind offer.

Barcelona, Mallorca, and Andorra - Nov. 2016
1172, which includes all taxes and fees.
There is no direct flight, so that is Chicago to NC and then Aruba.
We used to book from Hartford, CT. Now we are in Oregon. Paid $1400. for two. However, Flying to Orlando first and staying at Disney for 3 nights and then on to Aruba. The flight is just too long for one day. Coming home it will take 15 hrs. including layovers. *cry* I was considering doing Fiji, but believe it or not, it was STILL more expensive from OR. ARUBA, here we come! Leaving for Orlando in 3 days.
we have a group of I think its 48 people
a friend did all the work got our airfrom 2000.00 to about 500.00 pp
looking over some of the prices I'm glad we booked at 500.00
