    Yes food and drinks are included. I notice some mint seats to aruba on other dates were going for $445.00 but for 2 seats. If anybody sees them for their dates grab them because they don't last long. Usually within 2 to 3 hours window they are gone!

    I purchased my tickets too early this year. They have gone down $90 per person. Good news with Southwest is that they still give a credit for one year from the date if original purchase. Keep going down, maybe I can will have to squeeze in a spring trip so it doesn't go to waste.
    I purchased a price that I knew was a little high, but I like having my room and flight booked around the same time. I woukd hate to find a great deal on a room then later have it cancelled out by expensive airfare.
    Always planning our next trip

    Just because it says 4 seats left at this price, doesn't mean there are only four seats left. They make a limited number of seats available at a lower price. That can change multiple times from the the time the flight is available to actual departure date. Games airlines play...

    I agree when I was reviewing my intended flight it reflected 3 seats available at $445 for mint. At the time I saw that only 3 people were booked for mint which I've been tracking for months. All of a sudden 2 people booked mint and the price jump to $1345 even though they said 3 were available at $445. Today I reviewed the mint seats for my intended flight and 2 more passengers booked the mint seats so they must have dropped it to $445 again sometime during the week. Buying airline tickets is sometimes like the stock market.

    I think it's a lot less predictable!
