We have booked our place! We are staying at Ocean Club from May 24th - June 1st and are very excited!! We have been looking into flights and have a couple of questions.
I have seen that the airport there is an adventure. Our flight to TCI would be non stop and arriving at 1:20 from Philly on a Saturday. (Which, from what I read, Saturdays there are quite busy!) We are flying out on a Sunday. Our options are to leave earlier and have a flight out at 8:00am, but be stuck with a 5 hour layover. (Also, the cheaper option.) Or to fly out at 10am nonstop. Which would be the better option for departure?. I would prefer the nonstop flight, but if its less chaotic/more reliable to fly out earlier, I would deal with the layover. Both flights arrive around the same time, with the earlier flight arriving 30 minutes later.
My next question is when to buy the tickets? I know prices fluctuate, and its hard to tell. The cheapest that I have seen is $513 for the non stop in bound flight with the layover on departure. ($570 for both nonstop...I would pay the difference for sure if the hassle factor isn't too much of a difference.) Right now the prices have gone up to $550-$607, respectively. This has been going on the last couple of weeks. The price has been up during the week, and then down on the weekend. I guess my real question here is, does anyone know if this is pretty standard airfare for Philly to Provo?
I appreciate any advice. You have all been so helpful to us!! Thanks in advance!! :)
