As I read through these threads of all the horror stories with ALM, I have to believe only the small minority of persons whose trip is upset is posting and that the majority whose trip went off without a hitch are happy campers and have no real reason to post here. I just keep telling myself, positive thoughts about airlines and my trip to Bonaire on June 2.

It's a mixed bag, George.

Everyone keep your fingers crossed for us - we are travelling ALM Miami to Bonaire direct on Saturday and really want to get there to toast the sunset.

The Saturday flight is a direct which is good - even our return flight on the 12th is also direct. We're packed and just waiting.......

how about Almost Left Miami?

George that's pretty much it. We have ten trip to Bonaire and most trouble free. The only problems we ever had were snowy weather out of NY once and the AA Airline Pilots job action a few years ago, wow, that was a real trip! As a matter of fact I don't think we ever had a problem with ALM!

Hi everyone, we are thinking of different ways to get to Bonaire from London Heathrow this December.

Glen, I totally agree, 70 degrees is expected here on Wednesday, who knows, it may even creep up to 75!!! Watch this space... Don't suppose you have any alternative route/airline info??? I got chatting to a taxi driver on Bonaire in December and he was telling me that there would be more airlines flying to Bonaire in the near future. He also mentioned that the airport was going to be extended, don't suppose anyone has news on that??

Air Jamaica flies daily from London to either Kingston or Montego Bay. Presently, there are two(soon to be three) flights from MOBAY to Bonaire per week I am serioiusly considering a trip to see a decent show and having dinner at Mr. Chows! The price is not that bad, I might add.
|By Sarah on Monday, April 30, 2001 - 5:37 am:|
Thanks Michael, tell me more about Mr. Chows!??
|By michael gaynor on Monday, April 30, 2001 - 8:52 am:|
Mr. Chow is in Knightsbridge. It is an upscale chinese restaurant that used to have Frech chefs and Italinan waiters! The food was unbelievable! There was a Mr. Chow in NYC and also LA, but I do think they have closed. Shall we all make reservations?
