For anyone who might use a DFW-SJU-BON routing with American, I noticed that their fare this morning for departure 14 January with return 23 January is $530 RT per person.

Thanks a million, plus or minus $718! (the savings times 2 for me and my buddy) That's my exact route, wonder if the rate drop is for all flight schedules, and if so, for how long...

Hello , Fellow Texans! About that flight.....still not a wonderful rate. Our flight was about that price in Sept., and the plane was about 1/2 empty. We each had a row of seats. The flight times are sooooo bad! Makes me want to take Continental to Houston and Air Jam to MoBay And then on to Bonaire! But we're flying back to Flamingo Airport on AA again in Dec.,... this time on award tickets. That's the price I like! Bon Noche! Margarite

I am coming in Jan 03 from ST. Louis. This trip sounds difficult. What is San Juan Like? What happens when you get there? More lines to wait in? Lost Luggage? Is it a long walk to your connection? How many hours ahead do you have to be at Bonaire Airport when you leave? What is the best travel day? Any problems with weight limits (all that gear). It look like we will be traveling Amereican Airlines, and then some "other" flight. Then on the way back we have to go thru New Jersey!! Is all this as bad as it sounds?

Oh my gosh, terminal 1 at SJU is horrid..LOL..you can get to the terminal from the other gates in about 10 minutes..it is a long walk for someone who has difficulty walking. NO GOOD food on the way or around so bring snacks from the US.

Can anyone tell me what size plane American flies from SJU to BON. We are headed to Bonaire Nov 25th on American. I am wondering how much (what size) carryon they will allow on this flight.
|By Ann Phelan on Saturday, October 26, 2002 - 11:06 am:|
It's small..about 40 seats and you cannot bring on much for carry on BUT you can walk to the plane with say a bag on wheels (typical carry on sized bag) and they collect it and put under the cockpit. Then you retrieve it in BON. All very efficient..

The a/c are ATR-72s; 60 passengers. Carryon in the cabin is limited because the overhead stowage is in netted shelves smaller than the bins in large jets: sized to the a/c, I guess; underseat is also a bit smaller. As Ann says, you can take 'normal' carryon out to the plane and it is stowed in an area between the main cabin and the pilots. I have not used the lavatories but do wonder at Annie's wording '..often nasty..'.

I've been on that flight about a dozen and a half times over the last 12 months - bathroom has never been nasty (but boy is it cozy!).
|By Mike and Debbie Chiapetto on Thursday, October 31, 2002 - 2:04 pm:|
Thanks for the suggestion to call AA and ask them. I guess that was too simple a solution that I did not think of it.

Don't forget Travelocity, Orbitz, or one of other the other on-line travel services. AA wanted $600 more for the round trip from SoCal than the price I was quoted and paid on Travelocity for next May/June. If you are after a package deal, check out Caradonna Carribean Tours at 800-328-2288. There are plenty on mentions of Caradonna if you do a keyword search on the 'Getting to Bonaire' thread.
