OK- our original plans had us going to Bon from Atl Aug 2nd -16th. I couldn't get the awesome priced tickets Delta advertised. The furthest out I could book were July 26th- Aug 9th.

I think I'd wait. I watch prices and they do change. I've seen them go up, and back down.

850.00 is more like an average price which implies there are bound to be both lower and higher prices offered...with a year to go i'd wait and see...

Don't blame you for wanting to avoid AA and AJ.

Because of my job, I could never make airline reservations earlier than 6-3 months before. I would always hold my breath hoping for a decent price for the flight.

Is there a way of putting in infromation to be alerted to a lower fare?

We priced the Atl-Bon using the $179/pp one way. We would fly from Raleigh NC(RDU) to Atlanta and then on to Bonaire. After pricing,(the $179 does not include all taxes and fees) we decided that the Continental flight from RDU-Newark and Newark to Bonaire round trip was actually about $55/pp cheaper. the flight times for Continental were also better for us.Depending on where you are, Continental also has direct flights from Houston that might be competitive, Just a comparison.

I'm actually in Charleston, SC and it's currently cheaper to fly out of Chas to Atlanta to Bonaire than straight from Atlanta. The Continental flight is another valid option. I just have a personal issue with them. They stranded me in a bad way this summer and said " Airline travel is just another form of public transportation. Arrival times are only estimates." Ummm by DAYS!! I'll avoid them if I can.

Another option is to fly AA to Curacao and then DIVI to BON. Typically less than $600 depending on departure airport; I used BWI.

Lorraine....does Kim M.@ Caradonna not just ROCK?!? We have been using her for the last 14 years!!! I have emailed/called her I don't know how many times the last day about coming back a third time this year; maybe it will happen? Not sure... but I'm all about just calling and letting her handle it ALL for me. I don't have time to SHOP for rates.

I LOVE Kim.

Oh lord Lorraine...we probably flew on old ALM flight together and didn't even know it LOL. I hated that airline but back in 1994 when we first stepped foot on Bonaire that was the kind of it as far as getting there. We live in VA and now drive up to BWI to fly with AJ. Kim has been handling things for us since the early 90's too. Love her and she knows what we like and when we like it LOL!

Please keep in mind of the travel trends for Bonaire/Caribbean. Fall usually has air sales. Summer is peak travel to the Caribbean since the 20+ years I have been doing air. If you are not flexible with dates and can only use ONE airline you gotta bite the bullet and pay IMHO.
