Allow me to share my happiness...
Just booked my flight from Stx to San Juan, PR
Seabourne was $205 each way for 2 ppl= The total cost for this reservation is: $410.00
CapeAir was = 2 Adult (base fare) $224.00 ($448.00 total) Taxes & Fees: $19.00 Total: $467.00 (all taxes and fees included)
JET BLUE: $215 roundtrip for 2 ppl!!
P.S. flying out on a saturday AND it's christmas eve...
If that rate lasts, it will truly make a difference in the quality of life here. We will be able to connect with Jet Blue in San Juan, where you can get some really great rates. I love Jet Blue. I don't know what the equipment will be here, but their big planes at the BEST!
More info about JetBlue's new flights to STT and STX is here:
"New airlines will bring 'tens of thousands' of visitors"
After researching it further on http://jetblue.com/ , I determined that, starting December 12, JetBlue will have 1 flight per day between STX and SJU, in the afternoon. They’ll have 2 flights per day between STT and SJU, morning and afternoon.
