Thanks for the update. We've decided on April for our next trip. Southwest doesn't yet book that far in advance and that has always been my biggest beef with them. I believe you can book further out with other airlines. I'll just have to wait it out.
There are a lot of people finding out that there are no flights on SW from their home airport OR you need to connect and in doing so, need to overnight, in some cases, going and coming from Aruba. An overnight in a hotel, not even taking into consideration the inconvenience, more than eats up any savings.
...and lucky for us, thus far Delta has been competitive in pricing with Southwest.
SWA doesn't start flying out of Providence until Sept. 16 with connecting flights on weekends from BWI or Orlando during the week. So far prices are about 200.00 less than USAIR. FYI new schedule comes out on or around Aug. 4th.
was just checking out flights for a friend of mine leaving out of Philly...checked for approximate dates as we will already be there so she can adjust her vacation accordingly....USAir....found flight as low as 415 round trip.....can't believe it, but it's true. Dates are for November (not Thanksgiving week).
Bad part is that we already bought and paid 450....dang it !!!!!
