    Trouble finding a flight

    I'm having trouble finding a flight to Aruba the first week in August. I run into layovers, seats not together (a must for my gf), or arriving in aruba too late. (US Airways has flights available, but I will not fly US Airways.) My question is will the airlines open up more flights between now and August, or is whats out there all that there will be? I don't fly much, so I'm not sure how all that goes.

    Thanks.

    There are a lot of airlines that are reducing the number of flights all over the world. They are preferring to fill a plane so they have less flights then send them half empty. Summer flights to Aruba are less plentiful then in the winter.

    From our experience, the cheapest flights are usually from US Air but a few hundred dollars each. In addition, they also have the most flights to Aruba.
    happiness is going to Aruba with your adult kids because they still want to come with their parents

    Why won't you use US Airways? I Fly a lot for work (8-10 flights a month) and use US Airways 80-90% of the time and have great luck with them.
