You deserters...well have a good time..let me know how it is, since Can.3000 is in flux. Like to see my San Juan friends again, for that matter.
|By Josie on Wednesday, May 30, 2001 - 9:17 pm:|
Kerri, what do you mean about Canada3000 being in flux?
|By Kerri Freeman on Wednesday, May 30, 2001 - 9:30 pm:|
Josie, I hope nothing disruptive, mailed a couple of notices to the boards and you back a bit. Can.3000 has amalgamated with at different times, 2 other airlines. Air Can. is running as a monopoly and a pretty scuzzy one. Can 3000 + Royal Air and 1 other are going to try to cover off each other's routes, and also (altho' I don't think they said so) provide competition. Each will pick up the part of the other's routes that fits best with their goals. Am hoping the Bonaire flight is still going to be covered. No info I've seen yet as to which will do what routes.But they will function as 1, don't know under what name, likely Can 3000.

Glen I will be there to meet the flight. There will be a party in the arrivals hall and a ceremony to welcome the flight. It is the least I can do for you and the NYT you have so graciously agreed to drag along!!

Glen, which flight are you on? I am scheduled to be on the June 2 flight arriving Bonaire at 8:20pm (flt 5643) from San Juan. If you are on this flight, look for me. I'll be the one with the smile on his face!

ATMs yes! They dispense both Neth. Antilles guilders as well as US cash.

Thanks for the praise, guys :-)

Will the tour operators sell air-only? I'm pretty certain they won't have packages to our favorite place (Bonaire Town Homes) because they are such a TINY (but big at heart!) operation.
|By michael gaynor on Saturday, June 2, 2001 - 8:25 am:|
most operators will sell air only, but the rate may be a bit more since it is not coupled with ground and commissions from airlines are so small.
|By Jake Richter - NetTech on Saturday, June 2, 2001 - 10:15 am:|
I'll echo what Michael said - when we were stateside, we found we could almost always talk tour operators into selling us air only (some were more resistant to the idea than others, though).
|By DIVER DEBBI on Sunday, June 3, 2001 - 10:17 pm:|
Thanks for the heads up on the tour operators..I'll try that tactic and let you know if we succed..Bonaire or Bust !
