    A lengthy but quite informative report. I'm pretty sure most of us would like more frequent and less expensive flights to Aruba.

    Interesting on how certain routes are regulated and pricing control where an airlines doesn't earn a profit but for us who travel to Aruba, those routes are sold at a premium and make up for the loss on the regulated routes.

    Especially, when you travel as we do, during East Coast school vacation weeks.

    Airfare to Aruba is kind of like the tax the governments have always put on "luxury" items.... cigarettes, alcohol, etc.
    They know why people go there, they know that 9 times out of 10 it's leisure and relaxation, so, tax it or charge through the nose for it.
    If you want to go, you will, price be damned...!

    And we all prove that time and time again, because, the vast majority of us here are repeats.

    Trip #20 coming up in 31 days.
    Yeah, I'm a repeat for sure.

    And, I've said it before and I'm sure I'll say it again.

    You want to complain about airfare to Aruba?
    Move to Canada. Then you'll have something to bitch about.
    With the deals I see flying around that we don't have access to, you folks really don't have much to complain about.
