Airfare

We are looking ahead to airfare for November and it's much more than we have paid iin the past 20 years! Jet Blue is out of sight. The others are around $600 but the times are not very good. What is happening here? Is everyone paying these ridiculous prices?

Thanks! Darlene

I've seen this same topic on other forums. Seems everyone is seeing higher prices, but the constant I read is Jet Blue out of Boston. Now that Jet Blue has no competition for the nonstop business to Aruba out of Logan, they can do pretty much what they want. Lots of New Englanders go to Aruba yearly, hope this doesn't hurt their already hurting tourist business.

You don't list your travel dates, but DL seems to offer flights on many dates, with a connection in ATL, for ~$488. Fuel prices are up, airlines have cut routes, and planes are flying pretty full. High demand = high prices.

You don't give your exact dates, but you can find cheaper fares. Use the website already given. I see fares for $503 JFK-BOG-AUA depart 18 Nov, return 25 Nov on Avianca. You are going to really pay for a nonstop; an outrageous price, IMO.
