I'm planning on going to Aruba in June from Phoenix. My travel agent has come up with some pretty rough itineraries. American Airlines had the best, but I'm hesitant to book given the uncertainties of their strikes.

I thought I had heard about (read about?) some direct flight charters from various cities. Anyone have any insight into this? I have to leave after 2:00pm on a Sunday (or Monday am), and return by 10:00pm on a Monday a week later.

Also, I had considered Margarita as well (went back to Aruba for the sake of a non-sailing companion). If there was a significantly better flight available for Margarita, I would consider going there instead.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Brian,
I live in Tampa and know that Air Aruba flies direct from here to
Aruba.  It's not as cheap a flight as it used to be though.  I'm just
about to head back to Margarita.  It's a big PITA to get there with
transfers in Miami and Caracas but the conditions there are worth it.

Yes, Sandy Point is the best shop I have been in yet.  They even have a web page to look at.  It is still under construction, but it is a start.  They also have some great sailing right at their back door.  Best wind at Daytona will be out of the Northeast.

Here is the URL:    http://www.check.com/SandyPoint

Windful Wishes,

Todd

Margarita can be reached directly from Ney Your via ??? airlines.  It is
a must to go to New York then direct to margarita, because you have to
stay the night in Caracas and pay for hotel.

Are you flying to Aruba or Margarita?  For Margarita, it is
reasonable to fly Miami-Caracas-Margarita without staying overnight in
Caracas.

The flights I took last month were:
    Servivensa VC 6001   Miami->Caracas     (midmorning to 1:00PM)
    Servivensa VC 678    Caracas->Porlamar  (3-ish to 4-ish)
         and
    Servivensa VC 699    Porlamar->Caracas  (9:00 AM to 9:30)
    Servivensa VC 6006   Caracas->Miami     (12-ish to 4-ish)    

I left Miami midmorning, waited two hours in Caracas, and arrived
late afternoonin Porlamar.  Similar situation Returning to Miami.
I left early morning, waited 2 hours in Caracas, and arrived in
Miami late afternoon.  The switch in Caracas involves walking 1/4
mile from the international terminal to the national one and is
very straightforward. There is a shuttle bus if want to use it.
The roundtrip fare Miami-Porlamar-Miami was $284 with one week
advance purchase.

I originally had direct tickets from Miami to Margarita on Viasa
Airlines, but Viasa cancelled all their flights at the last
minute.  They did refund the fare.
