NEED HELP - Tricky Tuesday Travel in Nov.
| By Leif S (Experienced BonaireTalker - Post #282) on Wednesday, October 19, 2005 - 4:11 pm: |
Can 2 people get from DFW to BON and BACK on TUESDAYS in Nov.?
Michelle is about to trek off to Kosovo with the Nat'l Gd. for a year and she has JUST been giving a pass for Nov. 7-15. Thus, we gotta' dive before she goes! Travel on Nov. 7 could be a problem if she does not get to start leave the night before, so the ideal travel dates are Tues. Nov. 8 and Tues. Nov. 15. Otherwise, the trip will seem even more too short that it already will be.
Problem is that AA does not have a route to BON on Tuesdays!
Can anyone advise (quickly) on whether it would work to fly to CURacao and then jump on a BonaireExcel flight the same day for the outbound leg, and then do something similar on the return trip?
And BonaireExcel doesn't seem to have a working website... any help there?

We will travel 100% carry-on; no checked bags (except gate check for the prop planes).

Get to Curancao and then use Divi Divi air for the Cur to Bon leg both ways. Divi Divi has many flights on Tuesday.

Divi Divi is more reliable than BonairExpress. You will find contact info for both airlines on other threads. Both fly to and from Curacao.
You can also fly via Aruba. Several US airlines go there. But then you are limited to BonairExpress. Note the new name, and take care with the spelling.

Divi came through via e-mail in just under 24 hours... (Thanks Danielle)
BE website looked like it could ticket online, but it would not process credit card data...

I have bought tickets within the last week at the counters on Bonaire of both Divi Divi and BonairExpress.
Both accepted credit cards, but BE does not do so on Aruba. I don't know about on Curacao.
BE issues e-tickets at the counter on Bonaire. Not sure they grasp the point of e-tickets yet.
We can only hope the process will grow smoother with both airlines.
Good luck with your trip, Leif!
