Maybe I was just lucky but had an easy connection flew in at 3:30 pm to Aruba from Charlotte - no lines in Aruba (had paper ticket in hand for BE) plane was full - left on time arrived on time. Bonaire to Aruba left on time arrived on time. Total flying time 4 hours 40 minutes! CLT-AUA-BON Good luck to those traveling!

I am booking, even as I write this, with USAirways. They're having problems booking the 5 pm BE flight to Bonaire. Right now, they're saying I can't leave until 10 pm. Not bad, but does anyone know what time ABCars closes on Bonaire?

We did a similar route that Janet took, though three of us flew in to Aruba via US Air from Philly, and one from Charlotte. We were taking the 5 p.m. BE flight, and the flight was full. Even though we had confirmed our tickets the day before, they told us that they were overbooked, so one of us stayed in Aruba and took the later flight in. I think if we could have gotten to the BE desk earlier we all would have been on the same 5 p.m. flight. Otherwise, all was fine.

Thank you. USAir has us booked for 10 pm, as the earlier flight is booked. When she was talking with co-workers, they suggested that we rush the BE desk as soon as we arrive. They might be able to get us on that one.

I just checked with my Travel Agent, and while it is apparently true that BE has cancelled the 5PM AUA-BON and the 11AM BON-AUA flights, they have been replaced with flights that have been shifted one hour.

That's great info, guys. The 6 pm departure might even help me get the earlier flight.

We just flew AUA/Bonaire via Bonaire Excel--we booked and paid on the internet and were only issued a confirmation page (no hard tickets). No problems at all when we checked in. . .You just have to remember to go to the ticket booth before you go to the check-in desk!

The 6pm and 10am flights are no direct flights. They stop over in Curaçao.
