    Right now JetBlue has fares from Boston for $460 round trip. I'm waiting to see what Southwest will have when they open up their schedule this week.
    Do you think Southwest will be less than $460? If so then I will need to quickly decide if flying JetBlue direct is worth it over the hassle of Southwest.

    That's a good fare for non-stop... grab it.

    SWA will not have non stop you will connect either in baltimore or orlando.
    so, that being said, i bet the fare will be in the $460 or less range.

    I would take that price and call it a day. The round trip is worth any small savings you may receive booking SWA. I love Jetblue out of Boston to Aruba

    179 days is going to pass really fast. The only part that needs to slow down is your time on Aruba.

    Hello cpjones, what a good feeling to know you are booked. Over the past 7 years we have such good times and vibes from Manchebo Beach. We are thinking of booking our next trip there over ABC. We love ABC but this year getting a papala was a bear. This getting up very early and getting your spot is quite a workout. The new papalas are close to each other too. Manchebo's papalas are so spread out and never seem to be full. They have a great Spa, breakfast,restaurant and bar. We looked at prices there and they are 3 x the amount of ABC for the week.We paid $750 for the week in high season at ABC. It looks like you can get AI or not. Love to get any cost savings tips from you for staying there. We are willing to go off season to make it work. Maybe a package deal or not getting ocean deluxe?
    Thanks for any info Sean and Susan
