After researching the best/most economical itinerary for Bonaire and Curacao, I booked 2 separate RT tix--from home to Bonaire and back on United, and Bonaire-Curacao-Bonaire on DAE. My question is since they're separate itineraries and separate airlines, what are the logistics I might need to be concerned about--on January 4th we have a 6:00 a.m. DAE flight that gets to Bonaire at 6:30 a.m. The United Airlines flight to the U.S. leaves at 8:30 a.m.
I was hoping/assuming that the 2 hour layover would be sufficient. I read a post on TA, however, about late/cancelled flights and the difficulty in getting around the ABCs. I would really appreciate anyone's experience if they had itineraries such as mine.
It really pays to do the research: I checked prices for 3 one ways (home-Bonaire, Bonaire-Curacao, Curacao-home), one multi-destination trip, and the 2 RT I chose. One-ways were a few hundred dollars more, but the multi-destination was almost twice as much as the 2 RT, as in $1,200 more (for just one person)!!
