    air fare

    I just checked usairways pricing for flights from DTW to Aruba. The total price with ALL the taxes came to $1,257.00 for 2 tickets. I purchased airfare from Delta, back in Aug. 08 and paid $1, 058 for 2 tickets. Both flights have 1 stop. Anyone find better deal.

    What are the dates? Changing the dates can change the price by a couple hundred bucks.
