    This http://www.quora.com/Why-do-airfare-...luctuate-daily is a fairly good explanation on airfares. Just know there are a limited number of seats available at set prices. If someone bought the 2 cheapest seats just prior to you, you would be shown the next least expensive airfare.

    Just know that if there is no one flying to Aruba you will see those $385 fares.
    If everyone wants to go to Aruba then the fares will be much higher.

    That's a 3.5-4 hour drive! I can't imagine dealing with that drive on the way home!

    what about an overnight (s) at a park/sleep/fly?
    it may all end uppricing out much cheaper than the $892 airfare.

    we had to do it a few times when we lived in maine.
    to save $500 total for the 2 of us we flew from Boston but stayed over at park/sleep/fly
    it cost us $200+ but we saved about $300

    We're looking at a bunch of different options - an overnight in Miami, leaving Aruba a day early, flying out of LGA or JKF, spending a day in Boston and getting to Aruba a day late. I need time to actually sit and play around with options

    Jacki, check the seating for the dates you want. About a month or two after we booked, we noticed the plane was full and has been since like two months ago. Now that's a bit early for every seat to be taken and then we realized, I bet its a wedding in Aruba. So of course the few seats available now are like $800 or more. We were constantly watching even though we had booked and then boom, in a week all these seats were taken. Maybe you can adjust your day one or two days either way. It could make a world of difference in the price.

    I am with you on that; cant imagine dealing with the airport, the flight, then a 4 hour drive home...gotta weigh out cost vs convenience.
    Not sure when, but we will be back
