    One Way Flights

    Has anyone ever used two seperate airlines with one way flights to Aruba and back?

    It is much cheaper for me to fly on a one way ticket down with Air Tran and come back on a one way with US Air.

    Any issues or problems?

    we have had no issues at all

    we have done it a few times to Aruba and numerous times Tampa or Orlando to Boston or Portland.

    in 2008 or 9, we flew
    AA to AUA via JFK.

    USAIR from AUA to Charlotte to Boston

    another time
    Delta Portland, Me to ATL to AUA
    and return
    USAIR AUA to Philly to Portland, Me

    those times pricing was the only motivation for doing it that way.

    I always do. Usually nonstop down on jet blue from boston and back on american thru miami because I like to leave aruba at 9:30 am and be back in boston by 4:30 pm. I also use united ff miles. not the best connections but the price is right. You'll always do better $$$ if you mix n match. usair can have decent rates as well. weekdays are better too.

    No problem booking one way tickets on different airlines. However, make sure that you have your return confirmation with you. You cannot travel to Aruba without a return ticket. Of course, the ticket person doesn't always ask, but you want to be prepared. Even though I don't need a return ticket because I have residency, they would not let me check in at Jetblue curbside in Boston without the return ticket.

    If you use Kayak.com to search for you flights, they will show you mix and match airlines for the best rates. You can set up price alerts too.
    Not sure when, but we will be back

    Thank You all for your input, I did book one ways this week for late June. Air Tran down and US Air coming back. This was the best deal for the days I wanted to fly.

    one way

    The only challenge you will have is if you have to change you flight. If so, you will have to pay $150 on each airline as a change fee. I was a travel agent for several years so I always look into this situations when traveling. You never know.
