Direct Flights?

Are there any airlines that fly direct from NYC to GC?

Cayman Airways presently has 3 non-stops each week and will be adding a 4th as we near high season.

We were extrememly happy when they began the non-stops from Chicago. What a difference it makes!

When do they add their Chicago flights? I booked USAir in March for Easter break. I live in Milwaukee and would have considered Chicago flights. Too late now but would have been nice to know if they would have worked out.

atlmom2,

When you initially posted you question about which flights to choose, I responded that you should check CAL out of ORD. It's so much easier. Maybe next time!

Okay, so if you are locked in to specific travel days, you are ****nked.

(that's from my friend Peter Schenk)

It's best to try to be flexible. You will find the best airline prices then.

When you live in Milwaukee we have to maximize our spring break as much as we can. Every minute we can be on the beach, we are.

When we used to live in Atlanta it wasn't as much of a priority going somewhere super warm for spring break. By the time spring break rolled around it was already warm in Atlanta.
