We have always found MHT to be more expensive than Boston. We have spent $500 from Boston each time. This time it is JetBlue direct. At this point, they are the only carrier that flies direct and they only do it on Sat. We do not go during high season so I am not sure what the difference might be.
Unfortunately, it seems that airfare is steadily on the rise, regardless of where/when you travel.
We paid $1300 this year for two tickets, round-trip to Aruba (incl. taxes and fees), traveling in September on JetBlue.
As Pam mentioned, the good news is that JetBlue is still offering direct flights for Saturday travel. For me, to be on the beach by 1 p.m. is worth the extra money.
I have to agree with the others, even though we're in South Florida ours is still pricing out at about $300 each - non-stop. I have put this trip off for several years cause the price was more and not even for a direct flight....biting the bullet this year and doing it cause it may never be too low. But, I have been keeping an eye on fares through fare compare and some prices have come down due to many consumers not flying right now. You should use a travel agent and have them keep an eye on it for you...........good luck!
Booked airfare on Sunday from JFK to Aruba non-stop on JetBlue. For the two of us round-trip airfare the total came to $1230.00. Of course if I had booked the night before it would have cost me $40 less because the prices keep jumping so I am happy we locked in when we did. We're flying out 9/28 and returning Sunday 10/5. We also booked extra legroom for $20 per seat. So for the two flights that cost us an extra $80 but it's well worth it. My fiance is 6'3 and he always complains. This is of course our honeymoon as well so we don't want to be uncomfortable, we don't mind spending a little extra. I would book soon if I were you. I hear prices are due to go up double in the coming weeks...
We paid $479.00 each from Buffalo, flying Delta. One stopover each way. I thought it was a great deal. Flights from Toronto, although they are direct, would have been twice the price. We are going the last week of October.
We are flying out of Hartford this month with a stop each way for $1400 (two tickets). That was the cheapest I could find back in December :(
Round Trip non-stop Saturday flights Feb 21 thru Feb 28 $1,360 for two including all fees. These are US Airways flights (1685 down, 1686 back), are very popular and the times are convenient: we can be on the beach by 3:15 upon arrival and don't have to be at the airport until noon upon departure.
We paid $485 a tix for august direct out of newark on continental. The morning flight was $750 we are leaving at 11am. We took a later return flight to make up for the beach time we will lose on the front end.
we paid $219 each way direct flights on Jet Blue out of Boston for May, I booked just after Christmas and so glad I had, just a week later (Jan) it was much higher.
It is tough. You have to get lucky. We booked through a travel agent and paid $470/person with American and have a layover in Miami. We are going this May. Just checked the price yesterday and the same flight is going for $900+ pp.
