    SW Air Good news/Bad News

    The good news is Southwest will have a flight from Tulsa to AUA starting on March 7. The bad news, sort of, is that it will only fly on Saturdays. That means we can go for a week or 2 weeks, not 10 or 11 nights. The flight will leave TUL at 08:30 am with plane change in Houston and arrive in Aruba at 04:00pm. Return is at noon from AUA arrive TUL at 9 pm. The good news is we have about 160,000 FF miles on SWA. Good for us to go about 2 times depending on when we go. I noticed they will also have flights from Dallas Love, St Louis, Chicago and a few other places. Not sure when they start though. Fares look good too from here. $613 for a round trip on March 28 returning following Saturday. 34,400 FF miles per ticket. That's cheaper than Delta or AA from here.

    Yes it is a win except that we like to stay at Costa Linda and Renaissance suites and they are both Friday to Friday. I think Playa Linda is Sunday to Sunday. Maybe Phoenix is Saturday to Saturday. I cant remember.

    Yes, that is good news but I also understand about the Sunday to sunday/ Fri-Fri...etc. We own and Divi Village and it is Sunday to Sunday so if I am planning on going anytime that is not our usual weeks I have to consider moving over to Divi Dutch or Phoenix....
    But at least you have FF miles and can use them without them taking a big chunk for each flight !!!!!
    ARUBA....HOME AWAY FROM HOME
