Ok, i need a cheap fare!

a friend of mine wo loves aviation has assigned me to find the cheapest fare from MIA-Trinidad. This can include stops. However, he really wants to stay at Barbados if he must and he can stay overnight there. He can also do quick US connections, but somehow insists that he can leave the airport for a 2 hour layover. This guy usually flies first class but is penny pinching, so if u can find first, make it under 1k and if not, then coach only.

he has told me no on the 3am MIA-POS
he can also leave from FLL or PBI
the dates must be DEC 20 MIAMI-POS and JAN 4 POS-MIAMI

that sounds like a crazy set of criteria. PBI & FLL departures both run in the $1,000 range, and MIA isn't much better coming in at $720 or so.

as a side note, i came across this crazy itinerary out of FLL that amounts to nothing more than a full tour of the sunshine state.
