Because of the problems in the exelgroup( which will probably go bankrupt) would have been a chance that bonairexel would be gone klm and DEE (Dutch Eagle Express)which is bonairexel DEE will take the leasecontract from the exelgroup and cut themselves loose join KLM and start under a new name which will be flying several destinations from Curacao

The "folding" part of the title to this thread caused a bit of anxiety -- I have (paper!) tickets on BE from Aruba to Bonaire on January 30.

Well it's ok Dee own all of the shares they are taking over the lease of the airplanes. DEE Says that it's going well but if it doesn't DEE will work on it's own for a little while and look 4 a partner.

Thanks. I have a feeling that I won't be completely convinced that this will all work out until we're actually on the ground in Bonaire.

We just returned from Bonaire and flew BE from Cur on 1/8 and returned on 1/23. BE is not "folding" but there will be name changed and some very positive changes such as a new maintenance contract. Also, they are aquiring more planes and therefore, should have a better on-time performance. There are always some problems with airlines getting to Bonaire but from my 12 year perspective BE is doing better than its predescessors. Remember, the destination is really worth it.

I have reservations to fly between Aruba and Bonaire and Curacao in June. After 2 weeks of trying to get reservations, I got them by calling Dutch Eagle Express directly in Aruba: 011 297 583 8030. To hold the reservation, they only wanted the last name and first initial. I am to give them cash when I arrive in Aruba.

We are holding a FAX from BE with our reservations for AUA to BON 2/20 and return 2/26.

just a reminder, call Larry at worlddive.com , he can take your cc, make your reservation , print your ticket and mail it to you.... much easier to have your ticket in hand when you get to Aruba...eliminates any question about making the 5:00 flt

I did contact Larry at Worldcive.com to actually get tickets for the DEE that I have booked but, he would charge $20/ ticket and I have 3 people

Marlene...Larry charges for the service he provides....I've missed the BE flight in Aruba twice because I did not have a ticket in hand and had to wait in line....if $20/ticket is too much to you, keep your reservation and wait in line..good luck

Marlene, a confirmation is as good as a paper ticket. On my recent flights I was treated just the same as those with paper tickets, we all waited and there was no preference shown. Also, both BE and the new parent take credit cards at the ticketing office.
