    Southwest Open for Bookings through January 4, 2015

    Looks like no weekday service though even in high season?

    We are flying Friday to Friday over Christmas and New Years to avoid some of the crowds. VERY happy we did not wait for SW to open their bookings.

    So far, Southwest isn't offering any flights to Aruba from Richmond Va., even though they offer service from Richmond to Atlanta, and from Atlanta to Aruba. We really liked flying with Air Tran, so we've been pretty disappointed with Southwest so far. I check every week to see if they have added service from RIC to AUA, but no luck yet. We were able to get some good deals through Air Tran.

    SW has a connection problem from most cities to Aruba. Their earliest flights don't arrive in ATL or MCO before the AUA flight leaves and vice versa on the return.

    There is actually a flight from RIC that arrives at ATL several hours before the flight to AUA on the weekends. They just aren't allowing it. However, since we usually travel on Fridays, and Southwest isn't offering any flights from ATL to AUA on Fridays, that wouldn't help me anyway.

    We are at Costa Linda. It would be fun to meet and grab a drink.

    We booked with SW right after they opened fares to Aruba for our trip in July and got a fare slightly under $400, nonstop from Orlando.
