Just received a new itinerary from my travel agent. My flight from Curacao and Return were changed. They tell me that I am now flying Dutch Caribbean instead of ALM. What has happened to ALM anyone out there that can enlighten me please help. Especially Michael on anyone else on the island.........

You are still basically flying with the same people.

I have been watching the stuff that has been going on with the ALM/Dutch Caribben Express, but my travel agent tells me that my flights are changed because they are not flying as many flights a day now......

Just got word from my travel agent that the Miami/Curacao flight does not connect to Bonaire so we have to stay overnite. Not good news for the new folks at DCA as they will lose a lot of business to American Airlines via Aruba with this new schedule.

Sorry - but there is no "new folks at DCA" - same planes, same staff (perhaps finally a few less) and perhaps (very little hope) the direct competition brings some better performance. And as they intend to fly only 4 times a day Curacao - Bonaire it is more than lucky that there is also the little DiviDivi (7seater Cessna) and AE... its no fun to live here and you want to leave the island and no flights are available even if you try to book weeks in advance. 6 hours to go to Aruba for $ 265 - with AE now its $165 - I just hope that one day AE will also make the connection to Caracas - for that 30 minutes flight it is no exception if one needs 9 hours or more - price with ALM $ 290 !!!!

I am suppose to be flying ALM on Saturday from Miami to Bonaire. I did confirm my flight on Monday and they said it was flying. Should I still be worried about my flight on saturday?

I'd worry about any flights on ALM until I'm off the ground and in the air.
