Well I finally booked the tickets. Went with AJ and they wound up going up in price by the time I booked but still cheaper than the other routes. Wound up paying 1074.40 for both leaving ohare. Not terrible, about 587.20 per person. Earlier in the day it was 25 bucks cheaper per person. You snooze you loose I guess.

That's from O'Hare for TWO people? Sounds CHEAP to me! I'm jealous! We hadn't known they dropped from a daily flight to a weekly, so we couldn't even get ON Air Jamaica! Have fun and enjoy!

Thanks my fellow wisconsinites ;). Yea I'm not really a big fan of driving to Ohare, I've flown out of there once and it's just a pain, but they have the best option for my trip. The one thing I didn't get was that AJ said that we should be there 2 and a half hours before our flight leaves which would be like 4am or earlier. I don't even think they open up their portals till like 5 I thought. They said something about closing the terminal 45 minutes before the flight leaves. Anybody know what that's all about?

Since 9/11 the airlines have required check-in long before the flight.

Shawn, the early check in is especially important when you are flying internationally, because of customs (at LAX they often search your bags, it is very random however).

look into staying at a hotel near the airport the night before your flight that will give you free parking the week you're gone. that way you won't be stressed driving down 94 in the wee hours of the morning and waiting in the cold until the terminal opens. (make sure the hotel has a shuttle that operates early enough to get you over to the terminal. Another benefit is that they will know exactly when the terminals open.)
