Question what is the most $$ you have ever paid for airfare for Aruba

Hopefully we have all gotten bargains on airfare to Aruba.
Sometimes the cheap flights are few and far between.

So, here's the poll

what is the most that you have spent on your airticket to Aruba
(and i mean coach not first/business class)

Sorry but we're useless for this poll... we've used Expedia & Orbitz for all three of our trips. However, we plan on booking separately for our next trip, so we'll have to get back to you! Sorry!!

I usually pay about $600 for a non stop flight on Continental out of Newark. 2 years ago a friend decided to go at the last minute and paid $1,000 for a COACH seat. ouch!!!

Cool Re: what is the most $$ you have ever paid for airfare for Aruba

My ticket for Feb. '06 was $905 direct out of Philly - the most I've ever paid. Unfortunately, I always need to book early since the flight fills up almost at the 330th day. US Air has told me to continually look online and should the flight go down, they'd give me credit for another trip. We'll see if that's true!

In our 5 trips we paid...422, 622 (waited too long), 352, 303, 452. We usually fly out of Philly on USAir. Newark always is higher and nondirect (well not all)!

The most we paid per person was $840 out of JFK.

Once, when hubby's boss treated us at the last minute, he paid $1,065 per person for President's Week.

Angry Re: what is the most $$ you have ever paid for airfare for Aruba

Last night I got a call from a neighbor asking me about flights to Aruba. Through Interval she traded a timeshare, and decided to go to Aruba on May 22nd through May 29th, Friday to Friday staying at the Surf Club.

I told her about the great deals on US Air, and that I'd only paid $430 for January, 2010, non-stop round trip. We went online..... Friday travel, no non stop from Philly was over 1K; this morning it's $840! Saturday to Saturday non-stop travel is $740! Is this crazy or what? I told her to call Interval back to see if she can get a Saturday to Saturday unit at the Surf Club which would afford her a non-stop flight, and $200 more in her pocket for two of them.

I can only imagine as time gets nearer for my January flight what the fare will be.

elaine, so many people tell me about the bargains they get. i'm still waiting to find them. i had planned to save my airmiles for a big special trip but the only way i could afford the flights was to use almost every mile we had instead of paying. and what's this with non stop? we have never had a non stop from baltimore any day of the week.

I so love the non-stop! Before US Air did this, I used to fly American with a layover in Puerto Rico.

In January when I go, US Air has the non-stop on Fridays and Saturdays, and ditto for the return trip. It's a wonderful thing ~ leave here at 7:30 AM, arrive in Aruba at 1.

Because the fare was so low, I didn't use any miles for the next trip, and will save them for a jaunt elsewhere.. maybe a fun long weekend visiting friends.

Default Re: what is the most $$ you have ever paid for airfare for Aruba

Last year in sept 2008 I've paid almost 2150,- Euro for two persons plus infant from Amsterdam to Aruba with KLM.

This year in aug 2009 I'll pay 1206,50 Euro from Amsterdam to Curacao with KLM and 237,67 Euro from Curacao to Aruba. with FlyDAE.

In 2002 I paid approximately 1450,- Euro.

In the past my father paid for the family 300,- Guilders (150,- Euro) each, but that's because he is working at KLM and only at the time I lived at home.

I hate to fly with Martinair (= more expensive), and I hate it more flying with Arkefly.
I don't know why, but it's something between my ears (= Dutch).
