Off to Bon on Friday, regardless of what's happening in the middle east. I'm NOT going to wreck a vacation because of saddam or whomever, I just hope the airlines are flying. Does anybody have any current info on the airlines plans (esp. AJ) as it relates to wartime security.

Can anyone tell me what size carryon you can take on DCA. I want to carryon our mask, fins,snorkel, to make sure they dont get lost. I dont need clothes on Bon but do need dive stuff. I called t he airline they said 8x14 carryon......that seems ridiculous. I wonder if this is a new security feature. The overheads surely hold more than that. I could have sworn when we flew DCA last year we took our dive stuff as carryon. Karen, which airline are you flying,,,,,,,,we arrive Sat. via Miami. We are Floridians too(Tampa).......hope to see ya at Gibis

Jake, flying nonstop Sat Miami to Bon. on return we go thru Curacao. The one time we flew thru Curacao we did the small plane to Bon and from w hat you say this is a smaller plane. Not looking forward to that. When I made the reservation it was supposed to be nonstop both ways. I am mostly concerned about being able to have dive stuff carryon on way to Bon. If its lost on way home dont care as much. We will check all then anyway.

DCA may fly a 'loop': MIA-BON-CURACAO-MIA or just MIA-BON-CUR (they likely service the airplane in Curacao: fuel, food, clean, etc.) so it is possible your return flight will be on an MD-80 with a deplane/replane in Curacao. In the 'old days', travel agents, at least, could look up a flight' itinerary including when you changed planes-- they may be able to do that for you now.. I am not sure I would trust DCA to tell me straight. And then, of course, there are the times they stop in Port au Prince without announcing it.

Quite likely a travel agent cannot look up the Cur-Bon section. Since they switched planes down to the Otters, the flights are no longer listed in the airline systems. The only way to book a Cur-Bon flight is calling DCA or making a res. at their website.

The MD-80 coming direct MIA-BON must go somewhere!! I was guessing it might loop or, at least, go to CUR. That part may be in the computer, if not the Otter flights. Surprised if Otters are not though-- almost all scheduled flights are. But then, it is DCA. Can't hurt to try.
