Holy cow, sherry! Who the hell can afford to pay those kinds of prices. What's the fare from there to NY?

it can be anywhere from 1500 to 3000 but usually the ny times pays for it or they use airmiles. the standard holds true though for africa. airmiles are scarce to aruba. they can't even earn them on the airlines they would have to take according to candy.

My previous high was $402/pp. Unfortunately, my new high is $665/pp for our trip in Nov 08. We got the tickets the morning they went on-sale at JetBlue and they were the cheapest we could find for the dates we are flying. That same schedule is currently $1105/pp.

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.

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).
