Hi looking to make my second trip to Bonaire from Chicago. The CON flight has been less than $600, but now it's up to over $900 for my dates June 20-June 28. Do you think the fare will come back down? or should I look to change my dates. I'm kicking myself for not getting it when I saw it for the great price.

I highly doubt it - you may want to check with bonairepros they may have a better rate/deal for a/f rates

2 days ago the price for EWR-BON-EWR was 540 without tax. I would not give up yet.

The con web booking is a little like a slot machine , on one night I got three rates for the same flight . Keep trying!

H! You might want to try signing on to Yapta.com and register (free) and enter your flight information and they weill notify you of changes in the fare rates....you can do this before or after you buy tickets.

Did you have to pay a $100 fee to get the credit?

I am 90% sure the price will come down. Plug the flights into www.yapta.com. My April Antigua trip came down 257.00 USD!!!! Thank you Yapta.

Hi, Linda...I don't think I was charged with any fee...might be because we are flying First Class but I don't think so.

I called Continental when my daughter's fare went down $125. We purchased it in July for her March/April trip. Continental told me there was a $100 fee to get the $25 credit. Asked for an upgrade on the domestic flight of her ticket.... but no go.

I am trying to arrange those weeks, I really like the weather(more wind than Sept.) and being on Bonaire with all of you guys again will be great.

Carole B and Lorraine, Which weeks are you at Divi? I think we just miss you when we're there (weeks 19 & 20). Would love to meet up some day.

So how does the Yapta site work? Do I book first with Continental, then register that info with Yapta or can I do it all through Yapta? I need to book flights for 5 from Pittsburgh,Pa for our Aug trip. And is it advisable to wait until later to book or do it now/Jan for Aug??

You can also check on leaving on Saturday and sunday. I just book 4 tickets leaving Saturday July 12 for 190,000 miles. The tickets were 599$ if you bought them.
